The West Michigan Whitecaps, a minor league baseball team has come up with a way for America to get fatter. They have created a concession called “The Fifth Third Burger.” It’s 5/3 lbs (1.66) of beef with lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, chili and Fritos on an eight-inch sesame seed bun.
When I first heard about it, I really didn’t understand why everyone was making a big deal. You basically made something that us “fatties” concoct everyday of our lives. A sandwich with toppings that you can add to any burger at your local TGI Fridays or Chili’s. All they did was add a couple extra patties to it. Hand them a Nobel Peace Prize why don’t you.
So why am I writing about this you ask? Because CNBC’s Darren Rovell created the monstrosity and ate it. But it wasn’t that he ate it, it was who he ate it in front of that I enjoyed the most.
