Me, Sister, Brother
T-bonz and I were in Virginia last week for a meeting. Pizza challenge in Virginia Beach. Me and my sister decide to give it a try.
Eating after 8pm, and I ate a big lunch at the meeting. Coach T said don't, I said do. Coach knows.

You've read about Xanadu & I taking on the 28" pizza Gut Buster Challenge. Now...
The next day, we’re at Govnr’s Park located at the corner of Victory and Victory. Last time here, Jimme and I fell a few potatoes short of completing the Govanator in 1 hour.
1 pound my ass!
With Jimme and I it was 4 pounds of the thickest steak fries I have ever seen! Steph had regular fries. But again WAAAYYYY more than a pound. 4 pounds. Add to that the 5 pound meat patty. A full pound of bacon. A pound of bun. A pound of cheese. A head of lettuce. An onion. Two tomatoes. Some pickles. And new since Jimme & I were there, that big ass burger is topped by a normal size burger.
13.5 pounds. One girl. One hour. Let’s get it on!
Condiments are ready.
That's a third-pound baby burger on top of the other one
And it's on...
The camera didn't capture it but there's a packed Happy Hour crowd watching
I squeezed the entire bottle of ketchup in the basket
Go, X, go! More or less, the meat is gone!
Some bun. Some fries. That's it!
Putting away the last bite! And a little tray clean up!
16.5 pounds. One girl. One hour (not even one hour, 53 minutes).
The Warm Up
After making our way down to Colorado Springs, we are at Fat Boys Pizza located at the corner of Awesome and Victory. I mean, Academy and Vickers. They have a challenge:
The Gut Buster. Two toppings. My topping choice: no doubt about it, Bacon. Stephanie wanted to go with mushrooms – but that was before we knew the 2 toppings had to be meaty. So she went Ham. Excellent, excellent pairing.
So the pizza was set – 90 ounces of dough (5 of their normal 18 oz balls of dough all mashed together), 32 ounces of sauce, pound-and-a-half cheese, and a pound each of the toppings.
When it came out of the oven, it smelled so, so good.
After cutting it and letting it cool down a bit, we found out it not only smelled good, but the taste was incredible.
We plowed through it, and when I finally – FINALLY - cleared my mouth we took the money and ran. Yum!
Turns out we were the first team to do it in the 3 years that location has been around. And of 51 teams to attempt in the 6 years that Fat Boys Pizza has been around we were only the 3rd team to get it done. Steph is the first female to be on a completing team. And when she comes back (to another location), she’ll be the first to complete it solo.
A bit ghetto of a place – at least that location (there are 3 locations around Colorado Springs).
Oh and the manager guy was looking for a reason – any reason – to get out of handing over the cash. He went so far as to have Steph show that she hadn’t stuffed any pizza down her pant legs or sweatshirt sleeves! Dude, you’re asking the wrong person to do that – he should have asked me!
