This past weekend Chris consumed 1000 calories and 45 grams of fat….in less than 2 minutes. Seriously people. If you watch Man v. Food on the Travel Channel, you may have seen the episode where he traveled to St. Louis to take on “Baseball’s Best Burger,” served at minor league game. Well, when we got a Groupon deal for “box seats” and free food at a Gateway Grizzlies game, we said why not! So we invited Chris’ co-worker, Marcus, and his wife, Molly, to come check it out with us. The stadium was adorable and the fact that it was out in the middle of nowhere gave it a sort of Field of Dreams feeling.
Now back to the food. What exactly is “Baseball’s Best Burger” you ask? Well, it’s pretty simple really…it’s a hamburger patty with cheddar cheese and bacon…served between to halves of a krispy kreme donut. CBS actually called the World’s Unhealthiest Burger–and I believe it! That didn’t stop my hungry husband…
I wish I could say that’s all Chris ate for the day…but in reality, we went through the McDonald’s drive-thru right after the game and he got 2 McChicken Sandwiches. Yep, 2. He usually uses the excuse that he’s a “growing boy”…but I think he’s going to have to retire that card pretty soon. 🙂
Other than the food, the game was fun…just very, VERY HOT. Hot enough to make us sneak out during the 7th inning stretch. But hey, we had great company and now Chris can say he’s eaten “Baseball’s Best Burger”!
