FanDuel - WFBC

March 11, 2006

Baseball's Best Burger: The Grizzlies and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts have teamed up to create "Baseball’s Best Burger." The burger, which was introduced at Gateway’s December 10th sale, consists of a thick and juicy burger topped with sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon. The burger is then placed in between each side of a Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnut.

Following the 2005 "Swiss Brat" and the 2004 "Best Hotdog" the new burger will contain roughly 1,000 calories and 45 grams of fat.

Hmm, I can't believe they didn't give luther credit.

I don't know about that. Sounds kinda yucky to me. Must be a pretty good ball club if they need burgers to fill seats. Then again, I have never had a burger at a ball game. I am from Philadelphia where you only geta burger at a greasy spoon-bar. Don't mess with my cheesesteak!! Props to Luther, isn't he in a coma or something? Nope, just checked, he's dead. A stroke due to a high-fat diet perhaps?

Kinda yucky? That's an abomination.

Geez, ruining Krispy Kreme doughnuts...now that's a crime.

If you're ever in the St. Louis area, taking in a Grizzlies game at GMC Park is highly recommended. The stadium is state-of-the-art, including hot tubs in the outfield. As for fannies in seats, GoBirds, the team pulled in more than 200,000 last season, or roughly the same number of drunk fans arrested at your average Eagles game.

Doesn't sound as good as the Roethlisburger. But maybe because I am one of those folks (in the minority, I know) who think Krispy Kreme sucks.

How stoned was this guy? Does he also work for Taco Bell research and development?

If the good burger stuff is between slices of a glazed doughnut, is the quality material going to end up as 'greezee lap doings'?

As Homer Simpson would say: "Donuts--is there anything they can't do?"--Although this could benefit from a savory olive tapenade.

Just a thought: if this "food" item is supposed to bring people out to the ballpark and put them in the seats, once they have eaten said burger, how does one propose removing the overstuffed fan from the seat?

how does one propose removing the overstuffed fan from the seat? You don't. Their only choice is to buy season tickets.

Would hate to be a plumber at the place...or worse the mop-guy.

Don't mess with my cheesesteak!! mmmm...cheesesteak.... /stomach growls Oh, man. They have those out here but it's nothing like the real thing. GoBirds, FedEx me a large cheesesteak w/ fried onions, green peppers and mushrooms.

Uhh Yeah that is gross, I'm a fat guy and i wouldn't even go near that thing, and I have eaten some strange things.

Rumor has it the Windy City Thunderbolts are trying to create a jelly-filled sesame seed bun and market it as Baseball's Best Doughnut. Why in the hell would you want a doughnut to even touch ground beef on purpose?
