All day long, the anticipation weighed on us. Would we be ready? Were we up to the challenge? Not the big game. That's tomorrow, when our beloved alma mater, Eastern Washington University plays the University of Delaware in the Football Championship Subdivision title game. No, what we were nervous about was the big burger. It's called El Jefe Grande, and it's the pride of Kenny's Burger Joint here in Frisco. It weighs in at a full seven pounds (roughly the size of EWU's superstar linebacker J.C. Sherritt.) The El Jefe is 7000 calories and features three pounds of beef, a half-pound of bacon, french fries, jalapenos, onions, and other fixings all slammed between two mattress-sized slabs of Texas toast/Jess & Ralph Walter, SR. More here.
DFO: Dunno if you've been following the musings of Jess (“The Financial Lives of Poets”) and Ralph Walter en route to Frisco, Texas, for tonight's national championship I-AA football game between EWU & Delaware. But you should if you want to laugh. Twitter feed here.
Question: Wes Aamodt of the old Shady Lady bar in Wardner once made a 10-pound burger for columnist Doug Clark and me. We ate about a pound of it between us. I once ate a 42-ounce steak at Wolf Lodge Inn, too. Can you top that for over-eating a burger or steak?
