When you're an NFL team named for a company that canned animal by-products under the slogan, "A meat market on your pantry shelf," and your fans wear cheese as a hat, your stadium better have a menu to match. Enter The Horse Collar, a 22-inch kielbasa covered in beer cheese and fried sauerkraut.

According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, The Horse Collar will sell for $20 at Lambeau Field this winter and appears to come with a penalty far stiffer than the 15 yards for a tackle of the same name. There's at least one Colt who wouldn't think about eating it, and surely it will be the butt of many a Bears fan's jokes.

Perhaps the chef drew inspiration from a Randy Moss touchdown celebration in Green Bay.

For the record, Green Bay ranked as the nation's 10th fattest city with approximately a third of its citizens weighing in as obese, according to a Gallup poll, and they're apparently making a push for top billing.

The Packers will also be unveiling a doughnut ice cream sandwich, which looks delicious, and the Bratchos — a bowl of brats, cheese and fried chips Rovell dubbed "Wisconsin in a bucket" — but The Horse Collar is the star of the show, coming in at a rough estimate of 10 billion calories.

"It's made for two," Lambeau Field's executive chef Heath Barbato told ESPN.com. "If you can tackle this one alone, you're a champ." Or currently suffering from a massive coronary.
