A newspaper reporter, fantasy soccer and a Waffle Home. All of the substances for a viral story, in fact.

The world was launched to that combo Thursday afternoon by Lee Sanderlin of the Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Miss. He had chosen the day to do penance for ending final in his league final season. It is extra enjoyable if we let his tweet clarify what he needed to do:

Sure, that is a complete calendar day in a single Waffle Home, minus the hours he may erase by consuming plate-size waffles.

Let’s simply say, he ran right into a wall early.

As Sanderlin’s discomfort grew (considered one of his Twitter updates was for a late-evening journey to the bushes exterior the restaurant for, um, getting sick), so did the group of on-line gawkers. By early Friday, the world was watching.



And the dedication to the bit was absolute.

Even one of many waffles jumped on Twitter.

So, was Sanderlin — whose Twitter bio reveals Ivy League ties (Columbia) — the bottom-feeder in a league stuffed with sharks? Based mostly on this Week 8 lineup, we might should say no.

Lastly, at 7:37 a.m. ET, Sanderlin completed the problem. He completed his objective of consuming 9 waffles and spent 15 hours within the restaurant.

What say you, at Waffle Home? Free grub for this intrepid reporter/fantasy laggard as soon as his abdomen can deal with it?
