Say Good Day To The Gilbert Burger
Former Green Bay Packer Brown was coach of the Continental Indoor Football League’s Milwaukee Bonecrushers until Tuesday when he resigned along with the rest of the coaching staff and the general manager. The reason was “‘irreconcilable differences’ between football operations and ownership on how best to run the program”.
I remember feeling the McRib/Gilbert sense of loss when I went back to Wisconsin and discovered Burger King no longer made the Gilbert Burger. For those of you who didn’t have the honor of living in Wisconsin during the Gilbert Burger era, the burger consisted of a “double whopper with double cheese, double lettuce, double tomato, double mayo, double onion, double ketchup and, as the manager of a Green Bay Burger King said in a telephone interview ‘no pickle because Gilbert doesn’t like pickles.’” I called 9-1 and waited for the impending heart attack the first time I tried the burger. They didn’t call him The Gravedigger for nothing.
How depressing would it have been to kick it in a Madison Burger King because of a Gilbert Burger? Better there than Jocko’s Rocket Ship or Stillwaters.
