Carmelo Anthony takes Big Apple by storm with big sandwich
If the cost of courtside seats for Carmelo Anthony's debut (even if it's only on the bench) tonight with the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden seems a little steep, try a cured-meats homage from the Carnegie Deli*.
A diner will be anything but Melo after putting away this $22 bad boy, which includes pastrami, corned beef, salami, bacon, lettuce, tomato and Russian dressing (in your eye, Mikhail Prokhorov). "We threw in bacon because he's gonna bring the bacon back to New York," owner Sandy Levine, whose gain is Via Della Pace's loss, told the New York Daily News. "And the salami - it's a spicy meat - he's going to spice up the team and spice up the fans."
A cynic might say that the Carnegie Deli gutted its menu in order to make the Carmelo. But the bigger question is what does this mean for the Nets, who consummated a big deal of their own after losing out on Melo? Deron Williams salt-water taffy?
*(If Carnegie Deli doesn't ring a bell, watch this. Please.)
