Burger Boy

A few blocks from San Antonio College and across the street from the famous White Rabbit concert venue, is Burger Boy. Carl Bates and the Bates family have been grilling burgers since 1957 here at in what looks like a converted Wiener-schnitzel hot dog restaurant. The Burger Boy was designed as a caricature of his father, Carl Sr. Makes you wonder where Carl Jr. came from uh? 60 something locations were bought by Burger King and the Bates recipe was marketed as the Whopper. Infact the original name of Burger Boy was Whopper Burger. The San Antonio location is the last one around. Though BK adopted the recipe, it changed over the years, the biggest change was adding a sesame seed bun and flame broiling the burger instead of grilling. Now the Whataburger chain markets a modified version of the Bates burger. The main difference here is that it's a small space, with a great staff in a great area of town and it really does feel like a burger joint, not a fast food chain. The score of 100 from the city health department doesn't hurt either.

NBC Live Coverage on September 11, 2001

These are the segments I remember so vividly from the day. I was at school. I remember hearing about it in-between going from my 1st class to my 2nd. It was on when I got to that class and we soon witnessed the flight 175 hit Tower 2. Then, it became real. We didn't do any other school work for the rest of the day. Every class following that one was simply a news viewing party. Jaws were dropped, fear for what the future held set in and a very uneasy feeling did not leave for weeks. I can't imagine what it was like to be in that city as it was horrible being states away. I remember being scared to sleep in my own bed that evening. Such a disaster.

This clip starts from the point NBC got word of the impact on building 1.




This clip starts right as Flight 175 impacts building 2.




This clip shows the collapse of building 2.




This clip lastly shows building 1 going down.

An amazing photographer, Tom Scheck, just so happened to be on site to document the tragedy that happened 10 years and a day ago. After extensive searching online, here is his view through his lens that I am sure not many have seen...
