If you want Chick-Fil-A in the Capital District, your options are limited. The closest restaurant is 90 minutes away. The only other place is inside the Albany airport. That means you would have to buy a ticket to get Chick-Fil-A. A Cross Country team did just that.

Vincent Putrino, is the captain of the cross country/track and field team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and didn't think the three-hour round trip was worth just lunch, according to News10. So the team bought a plane ticket.

They pooled together the $98 for a one way trip to Fort Lauderdale, which added up to $5.95 a person. Putrino rounded up the money, went through TSA, made the purchase and came back with lunch.

The $227 order for 18 people included....

15 Chick-Fil-A sandwiches
15 large fries
156 Chick-Fil-A nuggets
One bag of cookies
One lemonade

ONE bag of cookies and ONE lemonade. How do you split that 18 ways? Hope it was worth it guys.
