While there has been a trend toward staying home to watch sports – and not going to the stadium – that doesn’t mean the stadium experience doesn’t have something to offer … like unique food. I'm personally going to try to re-create each and every one of these. Well, maybe except for the one that has 10,000, yes 10,000 calories!!!!
Here’s a rundown of some of the most insanely unhealthy (but delicious) stadium foods in America:
5. The Long Bomb (Oakland Raiders, O.co Coliseum) – It’s a 20-inch-long pound of pork sausage covered in "onion-bacon jam."
4. The Murph-a-Dilla (Texas Rangers, Rangers Ballpark) – Can you handle a 24-inch flatbread piled with brisket, jalapenos, cheese, lettuce, pico de gallo, and pretty much anything else from the condiment table?
3. 3-Pound Texas Pretzel (Texas Rangers, Rangers Ballpark) – This three-pound sourdough pretzel is so big, it has to be served in a pizza box. You also get three dipping sauces.
2. The Fifth Third Burger (West Michigan Whitecaps minor league baseball team) – It’s one-pound of bun, more than a pound of beef, and a cup of thick chili. On top of it all is a pile of nacho cheese, salsa, lettuce, Fritos, tomatoes, sour cream, and five slices of American cheese.
1. The StrasBurger (Washington Nationals, Nationals Park) – Named after star Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg, this monster weighs in at eight pounds, contains 10,000 calories, and 700 grams of fat. (BleacherReport.com)
