Eat Like a Champion Today!

Thanks to prominent ChargerblueSpace poster Jim Veldheer for this look at how future NFL players condition their finely-tuned bodies.

Senior tackle Jared Veldheer (L) and current Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Tom Korte (R) tackled Fifth Third Ballpark and West Michigan Whitecaps' famed Fifth Third burger earlier this summer. Jared finished the meal in 18 minutes, a full 120 seconds ahead of Korte. Both received the coveted free t-shirts for their accomplishments.

According to CNBC's Darren Rovell it's his choice for #1 minor league concession item of the year.

"For years, we've given the title of 'Concession Item Of The Year' to the Gateway Grizzlies, whose executives seems to have a knack for coming up with the best idea year after year.

But the West Michigan Whitecaps have our eye this year with this — believed to be the single most caloric item ever offered at a ballpark.

Here are the important details on this absolute gutbuster. It's called the Fifth Third Burger, named after the bank that sponsors the team's ballpark.

It's 5/3 lbs (1.66) of beef with lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, chili and Fritos on an eight-inch sesame seed bun."
