First Tim Tebow got a drink named after him in New York City and now he has food item named after him.
The famed Carnegie Deli in Manhattan created a “Jetbow” sandwich named after Tim Tebow and his new team, the Jets. The sandwich weighs around 3.5 pounds, comes on white bread, and contains roast beef, corn beef, pastrami, american cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo.
Deli owner Sandy Levine says the sandwich would normally come on rye bread and be made with mustard and american cheese, but he changed the ingredients to make it more All-American to reflect Tim Tebow’s personality.
“We tailored it to the type of person he is,” Levine said.
The sandwich will cost $22.22 which is a dollar more than Tebow’s No. 15 jersey and Mark Sanchez’s No. 6 jersey, but with all four digits the same to make it more gimmicky. We heard the sandwich goes great with a No Sex on the Beach drink.
It’s been less than a week, but it’s pretty clear they’re going to love Tim Tebow in New York.
