This Guy is My Hero

Heidi, you're not going to want to read this story! Look away now.

This guy managed to eat the 20.2 pound burger that you see pictured here. Look at the size of the man and then look again at the size of the sandwich!

If I lived any where near this place, I'd be tempted to give it a try. I know that it would be way beyond eating 6 Burger King Whoppers in a single lunch break (hey, I was challenged), but I might feel like pushing my luck just the same. Oh, I'd like to think that I'm more mature than to accept such a challenge, but the truth is I'd give it a go just for the bragging rights. The $400, three T-shirts and certificate would be mere trinkets compared to the right to say I did it! I'm sure that my wife would be so proud! We may have to grow up, but we can still be immature!

How can a person fit something bigger than your stomach in there???

I remember years ago when we used to make the looooong drive between Shreveport, Louisiana and Denver, Colorado, there was a restaurant in Amarillo that offered a FREE 72-ounce steak dinner...if it was all consumed within one hour. That's only six pounds. Minor league. You could use it as the training table before you tackle the 20.2 pound burger. Dessert is, I suppose, the 10-gallon custard at Ted Drewes.

I think that I read something about the place that serves those burgers... they're supposed to be able to feed 20 people, and they feed it to them like its cake (in slices)!

More on Brad Sciullo. Apparently he was a rising star on the competitive eating circuit...

John . . . I don't think I could even eat the lettuce in that burger. . .
Bilbo. . . On my way to Colorado I pass that place in
Amarillo. . . . . still offering the 72 oz steak free if you can eat it all.
