Do or Do Not There is no Try

Hot-dogs may be the traditional food at ballparks, but on my last two trips to Oakland I have eaten BBQ. On the first of these occasions the neatly printed sign advertised “Try Tip”. On my next trip, someone else had spotted the spelling error. Rather than replace the signs, they had printed an ‘I’ and placed it over the ‘Y’ to correctly offer “Tri Tip”.

Tri Tip is not a cut of meat that I have seen in the UK. According to Wikipedia:

The tri-tip is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin primal cut.[1] It is a small triangular muscle, usually 1.5 to 2.5 lbs. (675 to 1,150g) per side of beef.

It actually originated in Oakland, so it is appropriate to serve at the park; although it further reduces any excuse for misspelling.
