New York’s Carnegie Deli Introduces “The Jetbow”

Newly acquired New York Jet Tim Tebow hasn’t even been formally introduced as a Jet, but he already has a sandwich with his name on it.

“The Jetbow” was announced by the Carnegie Deli in New York as the restaurant’s latest celebrity-named sandwich.

The Jetbow consists of corned beef, pastrami, roast beef, American cheese, mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato all crammed in between two pieces of white bread, and weighs an estimated 3.5 pounds.

Carnegie Deli’s walls are completely covered with pictures of celebrities who have attended the restaurant, and is known for its tributes to certain celebrities. The deli has sandwiches such as “The Woody Allen,” cleverly named after Woody Allen, and “The Melo,” named after Knick’s star Carmelo Anthony.

Carnegie Deli Owner Sandy Levine said that it would be the first time in the restaurant’s 75 years that a celebrity-named sandwich would contain white bread and mayonnaise, different from its usual combination of rye bread and mustard.

Levine also said that the ingredients in the Jetbow perfectly tailor to Tebow’s “All-American Boy” personality. Tebow’s picture already adorns the Carnegie Deli walls as he visited the restaurant after his Heisman-winning Season at the University of Florida in 2007.

Tebow is not even the starting quarterback for the Jets, but Tebowmania is the only thing stronger than Linsanity in New York, so he gets a sandwich.

Rick is on one of them “if it isn’t raw, unprocessed, hand harvested, whole grain, no pesticide, no chemicals, no taste, organic and grown in soil with a ph level of no more than 5.3 I ain’t eatin’ it” diets,  ya know, what the girly men eat.  Get over it, Rick!  Belly up to the bar and order a double cardiac burger with EXTRA mayo and a super size order of fresh double dipped greasy fries and a side of Buffalo wings and LIVE a little, huh?

What’s so “clever” about that?  I fail to find the cleverness.

Who needs to be clever??? Have you checked out the menu??? It’s a 22 hour operation,  made from scratch with every type of food for every taste. I don’t need any gimmicky clever marketing type of so called restaurant that only heats up food. This is honest food…They don’t have time to be clever!
