There goes my diet

America keeps finding new ways to make it fatter. I mean Taco Bell comes out with the Doritos taco, Burger King comes out with beef patties bigger than my head and IHOP keeps piling on the hash browns. However all of that pales compares to the insane menu item that the Texas Rangers are serving up for their fans. Ye gods...

For $26, fans at the new Captain Morgan Club in center field and at several concession stands at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington can attempt to clog arteries with not only the large dog, but a slew of toppings.

By the time you add shredded cheese, chili, sautéed onions and fries, the entire plate could weigh two pounds. And it's likely to add more than that to your waist line.

"I don't know how many calories are in this thing, but it's got to be 2,000 or 3,000," said Casey Rapp, operations manager for Sportsservice, which handles concessions at the park.

I think if you finish this thing you should be celebrated like a national hero... before you keel over with a heart attack.
