    I've got my next feat lined up. This monstrosity. Ballpark is only 2 hours from home. I am totally going to try to eat it this summer.


    "This is not the Whitecaps' first unique menu option. In recent years, the team has offered everything from deep-fried Twinkies and deep-fried Pepsi to entire turkey drumsticks."

    What are some other ball parks or famous restaurants with crazy ass food items like this?

    He seems to have enough water and paper towels. So I guess he's OK. Thanks.

    That's what I wondered. Maybe the helmet was Photoshopped in to make him look more ridiculous? Or someone Photoshopped it out so he could retain his dignity.

    Or he REALLY likes that burger, so much so that he tries it every day wearing the same clothes. Wonder if there's one of him in a Santa hat for the Christmas Eve attempt.

    Been to this park 12 years ago, when it was Old Kent. Nice place to watch a game.

    Love this line...

    If a single person can consume the entire 4-pound finished product in one sitting, the team plans to give him or her a special T-shirt.

    Nearly 300 grams of fat, 744 milligrams of cholesterol and 4,800 calories and you're only giving me a freakin' shirt? What, the angioplasty is separate?

    I honestly think I could do it if I planned ahead and trained once a week by trying to eat 4-5 pounds of other foods.

    I can eat 2 pounds of food easily. I know with enough encouragement I could put down 3... maybe four. Maybe.

    Why did this break off from the food pron thread?
