Blair River, the 29-year-old, 575-pound pitchman for Heart Attack Grill, died Tuesday, the restaurant's owner, Jon Basso, told QMI Agency.
Basso said River died from complications due to pneumonia.
He said River was a "wonderful person" who was like the "big man on campus" when he came into the restaurant.
"Pretty much every nurse in the house had a crush on him," Basso said in an interview from Phoenix, also calling River "a gentle giant of a man who cared deeply for others."

Unless you can catch pneumonia from eating burgers, I don't see where it would make a difference.

Don't speak so quickly, they may have to institute a draft to get enough men.

Not to worry, the other night while watching TV a large casket was on top of a 4 wheel cart with the pallbearers walking alongside it. Of course the tires were solid rubber & not pneumatic.

Ooff Ta, that 4 patty burger is 8000 calories. :drool:

This ain't Momma Cass choking on a ham sandwich, big boy died of a bout with pneumonia. I actually think this will go down as an 'all press is good press' for the Heart Attack Grill. Hell, I was in Chandler a couple weeks ago and didn't know about this place....now.....

considering that the science supports a diet consisting of protein and that oh so scary substance known as saturated fat, if all those dudes left the fries and buns on the plate, they'd be healthier when they left than when they walked in.
