Arizona Cardinals want to feed you well at the game
By Scott Allen
Bring your wallet ready to spend money but the Arizona Cardinals have some new eats for you in 2018
Are you interested in a seven pound burger and watch a football game live in person at the same time? The Arizona Cardinals have you covered in 2018.
They are introducing the Gridiron Burger Challenge. For the low price of just $75, you and only you, can have the privilege of eating one of these monsters this season at University of Phoenix Stadium.
That’s the catch though. In order to be considered for challenge complete, you must eat the thing by yourself. Oh, and if your friend would like one for him or herself? Good luck, the Cardinals are only going to make six of these burgers at each home game.
So what is going to be digesting in your stomach once you eat this? Well, how does five one-third hamburger patties, 20 slices of cheese, eight slices of bacon, five hot dogs, five bratwursts, eight chicken tenders, and 12 ounces of fries along with tomatoes, pickles, and lettuce sound?
Honestly as much as I love burgers, this seems a bit much. For all your trouble, you get a Cardinals jersey and your mug up on the Jumbotron. Really? That’s it? The burger you still have to pay for if you finish it?
Well, I guess the jersey would be a seller to those that try it. It just seems like a great ol’ mess to me that I’d rather not deal with. I’d prefer to spend that $75 on a better ticket to the game.
If you aren’t into the seven pounder, you can get the Gridzilla Burger for just $22. Even at $22, I think the regular burger and a couple of drinks is good enough for me.
I also suppose you’re wondering if you can take your time to eat this? Nope. You have one hour to complete your burger.
Don’t worry, if you don’t finish it but still eat a lot of it, you’ll be able to take an ambulance to the hospital. At least you don’t pay for that up front. You’ll get a nice bill from your insurance company.
Maybe, just maybe I’ll try one of the other new food items this year. How about a Fire Dog ($6) which consits of Flaming Cheetos and jalapenos, a Cardiac Cardinals Dog ($14) made up of a Smash Burger patty and wrapped in maple bacon, or a Churro Donut Sundae ($11)? Those seem more like my speed to try out.
For all that trouble really though, I think actually I will just stick to tailgaiting. That’s much more fun.
