The 20th anniversary of the famous sausage race at Milwaukee's Miller Park got a little dangerous Thursday, as the Italian sausage took a tumble while rounding the turn towards the first-base line.

No meat products were injured and the hot dog went on win the race. The bratwurst, which was tripped up by the falling Italian sausage, won the first ever race back in 1993.

Later in the game the bratwurst, one of the three original racers, joined Cubs announcers Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies in the booth for a, well, unique interview.
