An entry titled “Summer of 1972” reads, “When I’m not at work, or going to McDonalds [sic], I’m at County Stadium, eating a Big Mac while watching the Brewers, or I’m ‘cruising Main Street’ like everybody else."
Gorske’s good health can be verified by asking his wife, a nurse practitioner, he writes.
“My height is 6’2”, [and] if I try hard, I can get up to 195 pounds,” he writes.
There have been eight days that have not included a Big Mac for Gorske since he took that first bite of one in 1972, he wrote. The most recent was November 23, 2011, when McDonald’s was closed for Thanksgiving Day. He thought he had a Big Mac saved in the freezer, but was mistaken.
