An Eight-Pound Burger?

Planning to vacation in Washington, DC this spring, summer, or fall? Perhaps you can visit some of our nation's famous government buildings and monuments. If you're interested in catching a Washington Nationals game, how about devouring a StrasBurger?

Just imagine an eight-pound burger.

After a 2011 season almost entirely lost to an arm injury, the Nationals are welcoming their young pitching phenom, Stephen Strasburg, back to the mound with a burger that is roughly the size of 32 Quarter Pounders from McDonald's. Since Strasburg has a career pitching record of 6-4, that equates to 1 1/3 pounds per win. What if Cy Young had a burger named after him?

Don't believe me? Here's a photo.

Even if I wasn't a vegetarian that doesn't look appealing. I guess it is an honor but a bit overkill on the food. :)

I agree. How many do they realistically intend to sell?

I don't know--I watched a show from TLC (I think) called Best Food Ever or something like that on Netflix. They did an episode on Sandwiches. I nearly got sick watching the show it was so OVER on food. The sandwiches for the most part were excessive and greasy and more food and fat than most people should eat in a week and people were standing in line to eat one and brag about doing it. No wonder Americans look wasteful and gluttonous to other countries. We do go to excess on food. More is never enough apparently.

A premier restaurant, not too far from where I live, used to have a meal that if you ate it within an hour,it was free. The meal consisted of 72 ounces (4.5 pounds) of Steak, Korean Beef Hor'deveurs, Salad, Potato, and Bread. A famous wrestler, Haystack Calhoun, ate this twice and it is recorded at the restaurant. Haystack weighed in at about 400+ pounds.
