I think you all need to be aware of this. I've noticed over the year, that when mcgriddles wins the race in the 5th inning, the sox win. When fries win, sox lose. Big Mac is a toss up.

My recent evidence:

9/11: Fries Win - Sox Lose
9/10: Mcgriddles win - Sox Win
9/9 makeup game: Big Mac Wins - Sox Lose
9/9: Fries Win - Sox Lose
9/7: Big Mac Wins - Sox Lose
9/6: Mcgriddles win - Sox Win
9/5: Big Mac Wins - Sox Win

I also kept track for a few games earlier this summer:

7/18: Mcgriddles win - Sox Win
7/19: Fries Win - Sox Lose
7/21: Big Mac Wins - Sox Lose
7/21: Big Mac Wins - Sox Lose
7/22: Mcgriddles win - Sox Win
7/23: Mcgriddles win - Sox Win

Interesting. :cool:

If there is a conspiracy, I believe Alan Aqua, Lil' Thirsty, and Anita Quencher might be behind it.

I had a theory for a long time that McGriddles was just made up. Then I found out someone actually eats that!

The best race names over the years have easily been Alan Aqua and A.T. Money, which is someone's handle here.

Correct me if I am wrong, I believe those races take place at United Center during Hawks/Bulls games.

Yeah, that's true.

The Connie's Pizza race annoys me at USCF.....Stupid sausage, he's a stoner-- I know it.

You haven't lived until you've had the McGriddle. Holy **** they're good. Totally worth the 3 days of diarrhea you're signing up for.

Haha, see I always go for cheese, and I can't remember the last game I was at that cheese actually won.

I guess pepperoni must win them all. :D:

Sausage is drunk.

Pepperoni is on speed.

Cheese is a bit, um, slow.

Depends if you have a hash brown and whether you drink coffee, H2O, or Orange Hi Ci. It can last for a week though. Sometimes if your lucky only a day.

But WELL worth it.

If you order extra "egg substance" on a McGriddle, and they have no posted price for extra "egg substance," and you don't pay extra, are you stealing?

I believe McDonald's already owns Chipotle, so if you should broaden your horizons on petty theft. :cool:

It aint even worth stealing. My GF and I have a name for the McGriddles.....I can't say it on here but what would you call something that tastes horrible........
I'll leave that one up to you.

Nope, as long as it's not posted on the menu.

Now I want Chipotle. Thanks.

They are easily the most exciting part of a Bulls game. Except for the constant manufactured noise, without which a nap would be welcome and possible. McGriddles are not bad, IMO. I even try to make them at home but I use real maple syrup from a tree, not Monsanto.

I have no idea, but Im thinking I should put a petition together for mcdonalds requesting that mcgriddles always wins!

Sausage won the pizza race last night. Even if I have pepperoni on my game card, I often find myself rooting against it because it looks way too damn happy.

I'm with doublem on this one. The McGriddle is the best damn food or food-like item I've ever eaten. How do they make the pancakes taste like they're smothered in maple syrup?

Maple Syrup Flavoring #5, high fructose corn syrup and xanthan gum.

I miss the hat game.

They did a couple of versions of it on Tuesday night with a hockey theme (Blackhawks Night)

They sold off Chipolte.

I won a free Big Mac Tuesday night. Yeah, that's right, I'm bad, uh huh....:bandance:

By the way, given how often Sausage wins, I'm convinced he is 'roiding. Ever notice those late surges in the race he gets?

I've done some thinking about this race and logically the winner of the race every time should be McGriddles because of the three, it's the most aerodynamic and the other two racers (Big Mac and the fries) are in boxes for crying out loud. Consequently, they have more weight to carry.
