The ink was barely dry on Carmelo Anthony's $65 million deal to play for the New York Knicks when NYC's iconic Carnegie Deli added a sky-high sandwich devoted to Melo to its menu. "We put bacon on there, because we hope that Melo will bring the bacon back to New York -- and hopefully a championship -- and it's got salami, because we want to spice up the fans, the city and the Garden," Carnegie owner SandyLevine told Lori Midson.
But Rain has the best review of that sandwich:
I've heard that the Melo sandwich is kind of disappointing. You think it's going to be the greatest thing ever, but it doesn't deliver on its promise. If you're lucky, you might be able to trade it for three cheaper sandwiches and a couple of sides to be named later. The bad news is that you'll also have to throw in the last available serving of your favorite dessert to even get anybody to talk to you about taking that darned Melo off your hands.
