We inaugurated the Concession Food Item of the Week column with The Boomstick, the Texas Rangers' 2-foot long hot dog monstrosity. Last season, the Rangers' bested themselves with this new culinary car-wreck.


WHO HATH WROUGHT THIS MONTROSITY?: Globe Life Park in Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers

WHAT COMPRISES SUCH A THING?: A one-pound ground beef patty topped with half a pound of bacon, grilled onions, a pile of melted cheese, and red-pepper mayo on a pretzel bun.

WHAT IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH?: It comes with chips. But maybe you should like... eat a salad instead.


HOW MANY CALORIES WE TALKIN'?: You ready for this? Around 3,000 calories.

WAIT... DID YOU MEAN 300?: Nope, that's not a typo. This one burger is all the calories you need for an entire day. You'll be as amazed as these two baseball announcers:
