Left - center - right. This is my view for the last couple hours, and for the next couple hours. If it dies down I will get myself to a booth but this place has been buzzing all morning! #wafflehousechallenge #fantasyfootball #sacko

Waffle #6. Going to be ordering 1 at a time now. Let’s see how this strategy shakes out #WaffleHouseChallenge #FantasyFootball #Sacko

Waffle #7 you can see just begging the fork at the bottom of the glass some waffle residue build up from the dunking… BUT I’m at the bottom of hour #5. 7 waffles + 5 hours means I’m halfway through! #WaffleHouseChallenge #FantasyFootball #Sacko

This waffle bit was just at the bottom@and as I tweeted it floated to the top. It must’ve heard me tweeting. Came up here to tell me to keep its waffle name out my mentions #WaffleHouseChallenge #FantasyFootball #Sacko

A new enemy has emerged. The HEAT. It’s getting kind of hot boxed here. They’ve rolled down the shades to keep it a bit cooler. But all these people and waffles make for one sweaty hot Waffle House. Staff is doing all they can to patrons comfortable.

And that is to say. They all look happy and comfortable for a meal 30/45 minutes in and out. Just a kid who’s been here for 5 hours is going to start to get a wee uncomfortable. Shouldn’tve come in last - this is my penance

Some of these threads got messed up so here’s another dunking video of some strategy to get these waffles down it’s disgusting but this is not meant to be enjoyable 🤷🏻‍♂️ #WaffleHouseChallenge #FantasyFootball #Sacko

Let’s get down to brass tax folks. At some point I’m going to have to take a shit in this truck stop Waffle House. And that’s not a pleasant thought #WaffleHouseChallenge #FantasyFootball #Sacko

Completed the work portion of my morning. On to watching stuff!! An international test match of South Africa v Wales is starting in 15. A little bet on that and that’s going to be a fantastic way to kill a few hours #WaffleHouseChallenge #FantasyFootball #SouthAfricavWales #Boks

Glorious try by the Boks. This jawn now become a live twee thread of Boks v Wales

Waffle #8 going to be a bit. This is not as full as I’ve ever been but I’m keeping a good pace still on tracker to get 12 in 12 which was my initial goal getting into it #waffleHouseChallenge #Sacko #FantasyFootball #WaffleHouse

EMERGENCY EMERGENCY I never actually packed my 2nd laptop with my 1st one completely dead I am down to 0 working laptops. I packed the charging chord, but no laptop! In the battle vs boredom, boredom just got the upper hand #WaffleHouseChallenge #FantasyFootball #sacko

Also one of my power banks is dead. I still have 2 working iPhones and plenty of recharges left. But mentally, I’m here… #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball

A few fun updates to give. My rugby team caught wind of the challenge (though unrelated) and posted on Instagram the following instagram.com/p/CgFBnD3ORTT/…

This lead to someone who follows the Gryphons on Facebook to come up and say “I just saw you on Facebook!” We chatted briefly and he went back to his (assuming) waffles! Fantastic to have Gryphons fans across the DMV #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball

And also Justin Johnson, professional rugby player for the NE Freejacks caught wind of it. He wears a Waffle House sleeve to games and will send one my way once complete #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball #NEFreeJacks #Freejacks

Waffle #9. Let’s power through

It’s now past the Waffle House rush. There is a weird quietness about it. This place had people rolling through from 7 am to now and now everyone’s basically gone. A few stranglers, a ton of waitresses that are about to end their shift at 2 (which I’ll close my check b4) and me

With little fan fare. Waffle number 10 is up. My body is fighting back. I think I can do a one an hour for the next few. Just staying motivated to push through it! #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball

Not sure if I really noticed it by now, but apparently the AC is broken in this jawn. She said it should count as an extra Waffle! (Maybe?) They all pity me. And probably think I’m a little weird. #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball

A family just came in, and left within 8 minutes bc they’re down to 1 cook, and it’s too hot for comfort in here at this point. I think having the grill / waffle maker running plus the heat of the mid-afternoon sun is starting to make it uncomfortable for everyone involved

HUZZAH. Like The Ice Box coming out at halftime in the Little Giants, like Gandalf at the end of Two Towers, like the French at the battle of Yorktown. When all hope seemed lost, I got a table near an outlet and my laptop will be back to see me through the fourth quarter

10 waffles and 9 hours down. As I get closer to the goal, I’m hopeful food adrenaline takes over and gets me over the finish line. This is a new waitress shift (I closed out my last check) and this one said “they get people like me *all the time*” #WaffleHouseChallenge #Sacko

Waffle number 11. Rugby on and ready for this final push! #Rugby #NZLvIRE #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #SAvWales #Sacko #FantasyFootball

And down the stretch they come! As I am so close, but still so far away from the finish line I’m starting to get a bit antsy but if I can finish 2 more by 4:30, then it’s done. So that’s the goal. Just ordered them together so I can stare down the final boss #Sacko #WaffleHouse

There is currently no one else in here that isn’t an employee. Hopefully I can finish this up and gtfo out of here 1 more waffle and 1 more hour stand in the way. Counting down the minutes. #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball

8 more bites, and 43 more minutes. 1 but every 5 minutes and I’m free!!

The clock strikes 4 the air conditioner is finally up and running! And with an empty Waffle House it’s getting cool and feeling much better to finish it up. Collecting Ws since I got that outlet! 3 more bites, 25 minutes #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball

THE. FINAL. BITE. apologies for the weird eyebrow thing. I have no control over my overall facial expressions. But it’s done! 15 more minutes and I’m out #WaffleHouseChallenge #WaffleHouse #Sacko #FantasyFootball

With nothing but 10 minutes between me and completing I’d like to thank Waffle House and all their staff throughout the day. Especially Jess “The Mess” here in Elkton. Dave Codell for moral support. Tiesha for putting up with my planning, and of course my lowsy fantasy managing

Also special thanks to Justin Johnson of the NE FreeJacks. You have a new fan in me! Looking forward to the Waffle House sleeve 💪🏼 Hope you all enjoyed following along. I have lost 2 Sacko win a row so tune in next time for Karaoke updates… The rules are simple….

Just a few final@celebratory selfies to conclude the day. Maybe I shouldn’t suck at fantasy football. But maybe the real victory are the memories you make along the way
