Death by Minor League Baseball Food

For if you’ve completely given up on life and are looking for death in a meal, the West Michigan Whitecaps minor league baseball team has the concession item for you. It’s called the Fifth Third Burger (named after the bank that sponsors the team’s ballpark), will run you about twenty bucks, and can be found in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The item is prepared by grilling five beef patties, adding five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili, liberal doses of salsa and corn chips, nacho ingredients, and much more (defibrillator not included). You can check out the video below for the complete story. At a reported 4889 calories, it’s a real gutbuster.
