The Bombers have made a burger fit for an offensive lineman and appropriately named it the “Walby burger”.
It will cost $45 to sink your teeth into the massive five-pound burger which contains:
six chicken tenders
six hot dogs
six bacon strips
secret special sauce
Chris Walby spent his entire 16-year CFL career with his hometown Blue Bombers. After brief stints on the defensive line and at tight end in 1981, Walby made his permanent home along the offensive line in 1982, starting at guard for two seasons before moving out to right tackle in 1984.
Walby went on to play 13 seasons at right tackle with the Bombers, earning nine CFL all-star nominations and winning three Grey Cups. Walby is a member of the Blue Bomber, Manitoba Sports, and Canadian Football Halls of Fame.
The Winnipeg native checked in at six-foot-seven, 325 pounds during his playing days. You can bet Walby could still put away his self-named burger just like burying an opposing pass rusher.
Bombers fans took a quick liking to the burger.
