GLENDALE, AZ - When you're at a football game, food and drinks are part of the experience, but have you ever wondered where it all comes from? Or how much they make to satisfy every fan in the stadium?

During one home football game, stadium officials say that sell on average 20,000 hot dogs! That is equivalent to over 33 football fields long if they were to be placed end to end.
