The Adam Jones Burger

If you are a follower of Adam Jones on social media sites such as twitter or Instagram, you’re well aware that Jones is a food enthusiast. He’s constantly posting “food porn” pictures and signs off on many of his posts with the hashtag #stayhungry. After this past off-season, I honestly expected Jones to show up to spring training carrying an extra 10 lbs or so. However, Jones is in great shape and appears ready to lead the Orioles to some more “Oriole’s Magic”.

Now comes the news that Jones has joined the likes of other great athletes (Ben Roethlisberger, Stephen Strasburg) who’ve had a burger named in their honor. The Abbey Burger Bistro in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore is now offering the Simply AJ10 burger. The Abbey Burger Bistro features an “enticing selection of flavors for any burger palate” and was named Maryland’s “Great Burger Joint” by USA Today.

Apparently, Jones is a frequent visitor and has used the “build your own” option on the menu to construct his own burger which is now offered to the public. The restaurant is donating $1 for each burger sold to Adam’s charity, which is a nice gesture. Of course that dollar is a small portion of the profits, the AJ10 burger costs a hefty $15.50. The burger does come with tater tots (love them) and nacho cheese…although I would substitute the nacho cheese with the crab dip and tots which sounds amazing.

As far as the burger itself and in the words of Adam Jones…it definitely looks like something I would “smash”. Kobe beef on an english muffin (nice) with pepper jack cheese, avocado, jalapenos, bacon, chili pepper mayo, lettuce and tomato. They must have an engineer in the kitchen to fit all that on an english muffin.

Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m going to try to cure the hunger pains I’ve developed while writing this post.

Cheers and Hail

The Redskins Diet

It’s not easy being a food giant and a Redskins fan. The Redskins inability to put the ball in the endzone the last few weeks has been a real bummer for fat guys all around the DMV. While Packer’s fans would be building ‘meat lovers’ and ‘supreme’ pies for free…Redskins fans have been stuck with cheese pizzas.

The way the Papa Johns Redskins TD Special works is simple, with every TD the Redskins score you get a free topping. If the Redskins win the game, you can double the amount of free toppings. So, all you really need is a 17-14 win and you’ll be fat and happy with 4 free toppings. Unfortunately, the last 3 weeks the Redskins have managed only a last minute TD against the 49er’s and have lost all 3 games. Hey, at least Papa Johns throws in a dipping sauce and some pepperoncinis…maybe you can ask for some parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper to make your cheese pizza more palatable.

The bright side for Redskins fans? A cheese pizza saves about 650 calories over a meat lovers pie, so the 3 game losing streak and offensive ineptness has saved Redskin’s fans nearly 2000 calories. You mix that caloric savings with all the angry jumping around you’ve done yelling at the TV over the past 3 weeks, and you’ve lost yourself a couple lb’s. Papa Johns has also been able to save a lot of dough, serious pun intended.

Cheers and Hail
