Seattle's Champion Grocery Bagger to Appear on Letterman
Last month West Seattle's own Metropolitan Market grocery bagger Andrew Borracchini, 18, claimed the hotly contested title of “Best Bagger” in 23 states—along with $10,000—in a bagging competition held as part of the National Grocer’s Association convention in Las Vegas.
Tonight (Monday, March 25) at 11:35 pm,Borracchini has a chance to show off his gleaming trophy (the “Golden Grocery Bag”), and perhaps his giant novelty check, on David Letterman’s star-worn stage during an appearance on the Late Show.
Tune in—or set your DVR—to witness his rapid and ruthless bagging skills in action.
