Shaun White finds burger named after him at Olympics in Korea

If the Opening Ceremony on Friday night wasn’t enough to get you into the Olympic spirit, perhaps a cheeseburger named after one of the most famous Olympians in U.S. history will be.

Over the weekend, snowboarder Shaun White came across a cheeseburger in PyeongChang that is called “The Flying Tomato,” which of course is White’s nickname.

Naturally, White had to give it a try.

White’s hair is a lot more tame now than it used to be, but those of us who followed him when he first burst onto the Olympic scene and won a gold medal in 2006 remember exactly why “The Flying Tomato” nickname came into existence. It’s good to see it still has legs 12 years later.
