On Tuesday, November 23, Washington Wizards fan George Koonce attempted the impossible: eat BGR The Burger Joint's infamous 15 plus pound hamburger. The sandwich(if you can call it that) has almost ten pounds of meat, more than a head of lettuce, multiple beefsteak tomatoes, a pound of pickles, as well as onions and sauce, in between two giant buns(approximately three pounds).
The challenge started at tip-off of the Wizards/76ers game. If Koonce could finish the beast by the end of the third quarter, the entire crowd would receive a free BGR burger.
But poor George never stood a chance.
After the first quarter, he had finished just one slice that made up only 1/8 of the entire burger. It was at this point that Koonce gave up.
"No one can eat this much food," He said as he cratered.
