Charlotte Hornets Offer Fans Burger With 8 Pounds Of Meat For $70

While sports fans might not always get to feast on the delicious joy that comes with winning a hard-fought game, there are always crazy concession items to focus on and take part of that losing pain away. Enter the Charlotte Hornets’ entry into insane food concoctions: A burger featuring eight pounds of meat for the bargain price of $70.

In a move that makes the Tampa Bay Rays’ four-pounder look paltry, the Charlotte Hornets debuted the new 12-inch in diameter concession stand behemoth, Hugo’s Boss, just in time for the season opener last night, reports NYMag’s Grubstreet.

The evidence comes via ESPN’s @darrenrovell on Twitter:

The double-decker burger is said to include Swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon and mushrooms, and is named after the Hornets’ mascot, Hugo, and does not, most likely, contain any shredded bits from say, a fancy suit.
