NEW YORK (WFAN) — Call it the sandwich of champions.
Midtown’s famous Carnegie Deli has added some meat to its lineup — the “Derek Jeter Triple Club” — and WFAN’s Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton got a firsthand look at it Tuesday morning.
Boomer was impressed by the $28 pile of turkey, bacon, yellow American, lettuce and tomato. But the former NFL MVP wasn’t sure he’d be up to the challenge of chowing it down.
“This is ridiculous,” he said. “It’s gotta be 10 pounds of sandwich. … How am I gonna eat that?”
Boomer, pressed by Carton to finish the club within two hours, just couldn’t wrap his head around it: “This is insane. I can’t eat all that!”
The sandwich was named after Jeter, the legendary Yankees captain who played his last game Sunday. The deli owner’s daughter, Sarri Harper, told the New York Daily News that Carnegie’s tremendous triple-decker “has five ingredients because he won the World Series five times” and “two meats because he was No. 2.”
Maybe it should come with a fork — and a doggie bag.
“You can’t get a bite on that thing. Ridiculous,” Boomer said. “Dude, there’s no way.”
He found a way. Eventually. And after Boomer managed to get a bite, he offered his thoughts.
“Pretty good,” he said.
