ADMIN

Going to a stadium to watch your favourite team or your favourite player taking on their fierce rival is a treat that most sports fanatics want to enjoy. 

The stadium organisers also leave no stone unturned in making this experience a memorable one by providing the fans with the best facilities, that too without burning a deep hole into their pocket.

But in the end, sports is a multibillion-dollar business and it’s another medium through which the rich people get even richer. For that, they try everything.

From introducing limited edition memorabilia to launching special edition kits, they do everything to make people splash their cash (or cards or whatever).

They know that people have strong attachments with their favourite sports teams and they wouldn’t think twice before spending money on things that make them happy internally. It doesn’t even matter if that product is overpriced.

The Atlanta Braves are selling a 'World Champions Burger' that has all the fixings!

For $151, you also get a replica World Series ring with your order.

OR

For $25,000, it comes with a limited-edition World Series ring.

Tapping into this very realm of the human psyche, the Atlanta Braves, a professional baseball team in the US,  has launched special ‘World Champions Burgers’ priced at Rs 25 lakh ($33,000).

Yes, you read that right! To take a bite of this burger the fans have to shell out Rs 25 lakh which is way more than what majority of Indians earn in the whole year.

Don’t worry people, there is a ‘cheaper’ version of this burger which is comparatively way more affordable. So, ready for the price?  

This burger will cost fans Rs 11,457 ($151).

Now, you must be wondering what's so special about these burgers that they cost so much. Well, as the name suggests these are no ordinary burgers. These burgers were launched to commemorate the world series title that Atlanta Braves won last year.

Those going for the ultra-expensive burger would get a limited edition world championship ring and those opting for the ‘cheaper’ option would get only a replica of the World Series ring.

In case you were wondering what all ingredients would be used to prepare these burgers. A sports business analyst named Darren Rovell listed out all the ingredients that will go into preparing the cheapest of the two available options.

Burger that Braves are selling for $151:

“Wagyu beef patty with cage-free pan-fried eggs, gold-leaf-wrapped foie gras, grilled cold water lobster tail, heirloom tomato, Tillamook cheddar cheese and truffle aioli on a toasted, buttered bun served with Parmesan waffle fries,” he wrote on Twitter.

Naturally, the fans came up with hilarious replies when they learned about the pricing of the two burgers. A fan wrote that given the price he would go for “hot dog” instead.

Here’s how they reacted:

If I'm eating a $151 burger and a foul ball is heading my way I'm getting a concussion because I'm not dropping it. https://t.co/z3wDr4J84X

For that price it should come with the defibrillator that you're gonna need after you eat it.. https://t.co/MSnUPyEePQ

We wonder how the Indians would have reacted if these were launched here.
