Can't Ignore This One Either!

Oh, take me out to the ball game! Get, my gut full of flab! Buy me this burger and Rolaids cuz I'm gonna fat!

Yeah, you are about to see the new rollout for the 2009 season at this baseball concession stand. Bring on the 4800 calories. I hope they give out ketchup packets!

Obviously this ball park doesn't want any fans next season as they are grilling up a major heart attack inducer!

See video below!

According to a few news articles here's what the president had to say. "We always try to come up with something new and innovative," Whitecaps president Scott Lane said. "We believe it's very important to the overall experience."

Here's what the mlive article had to say on the stats:
Here's what fans can expect from the Fifth Third Burger:

Start with an 8-inch sesame seed bun that requires 1 pound of dough and is made specially for the Whitecaps by Nantucket Baking Co. of Grand Rapids.

Todd Guyer, food and beverage manager for the West Michigan Whitecaps, adds a layer of Fritos to the Fifth Third Burger.
Spoon on nearly a cup of chili and place five one-third pound hamburger patties on top of that. (Get it, 5/3 pounds of beef for the Fifth Third Burger?)

Add five slices of American cheese and liberal doses of salsa, nacho cheese and Fritos. Top it off with lettuce, tomato and sour cream, and you have a burger that can be sliced with a pizza cutter and feed four people for $20. Jalapenos are optional.

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.

Uh... yeah. Can I go puke now?

PT out
