The 'Home Run' Of 'Heart-Attack' Burgers

What you see to the left is not your average sized burger. Although it may look smaller in the picture, it is in fact over 5 pounds worth of meat that can feed an entire family of four.

The burger is part of a new menu that the West Michigan Whitecaps baseball club (Class A minor league team affiliate of the Detroit Tigers) is offering at their ball park.

Now we've all seen our "heart-attack on a plate" from time to time, but I'm pretttty sure this one takes the cake!

The "Fifth Third Burger" (dubbed because the Whitecaps' home is Fifth Third Ballpark) is 5/3 pounds of grilled hamburger topped with tomato, lettuce, nacho cheese, chili, salsa and crunched up tortilla chips. The buns that hold it together are 8 inches in diameter.

Kind of makes you want to hurl just looking at it. But hey, that's just my opinion.
