The Arizona Cardinals have unveiled several new food items for the 2018 NFL season, including a seven-pound Gridiron Burger.
It includes five 1/3 pound burger patties, five all beef hot dogs, five bratwursts, 20 slices of American cheese, eight slices of bacon, eight chicken tenders, 12 ounces of fries, lettuce, pickles & tanker sauce on a 10-inch bun.
The cost? $75 and perhaps a few years off your life.
If one person can finish it in under an hour you’ll be rewarded with an Arizona Cardinals jersey and your photo on the scoreboard.

Looking for slightly smaller fare? There’s a “diet” version of the behemoth burger, which includes all the same ingredients, but in a significantly smaller portion.
Other new items include the taco-dilla and the churro donut sundae. There are lots of delicious and creative options, but what stands out the most to Kavanaugh?
“My favorite right now has to be the challenge,” he said. “It gets people excited. That’s what it’s about; we want people to come to the games, enjoy themselves, indulge in some of these new items, have fun while they’re doing it, and I think this is one that gets people excited.”
The food will be available starting at the team’s preseason opener against the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday.
