Nationals to Sell Eight-Pound ‘StrasBurger’ at Ballpark This Season in Honor of Pitcher Stephen Strasburg


As Stephen Strasburg's strikeout total rises this season, so will the cholesterol level of many Nationals fans.

That's because Nats fans will now have an opportunity to purchase the new eight-pound StrasBurger at Nationals Park, according to The Washington Post.

Yes, eight whole pounds.

The burger, which will be sold in the stadium's "Red Porch" section, is a monstrous all-beef burger that's served on a large bun with a secret sauce, American cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced red onions and pickle chips.

Since that's hardly enough for the average eater, the StrasBurger will also come with a cone basket of fries and a pitcher of the soft drink of your choice.

The burger is described in press release as "the perfect entree to share at this affordably-priced family restaurant." No one is saying you have to share, though.
