A Big Mac every day for 40 years is a whole lot of burger

Where does it all go?

Donald Gorske attended his first baseball game and ate his first Big Mac on May 17, 1972 in Milwaukee. Since then, the Wisconsin native has visited 54 big league stadiums, attended 696 baseball games and eaten 25,923 of McDonalds' famous burgers.

Only eight days have gone by over the past four decades without Gorske eating a Big Mac. One of those days was when he visited the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. There was no McDonalds in town at the time.

The baseball fan, who attended the Phillies-Braves game on Sunday night, was even highlighted for his hamburger prowess in the movie Super Size Me.

After the game at Turner Field, Gorske increased his Big Mac tally to 25,924 ... but who's counting?
