Atlanta Falcons to debut this monstrosity of a sandwich at training camp (pic)


Sweet meaty diabetes, Batman! The Atlanta Falcons have announced the team will unveil the above monstrosity of culinary and fat-filled goodness when the team opens training camp on July 25.

The over-the-top sandwich usually is the work of wacky minor league baseball teams, but the Falcons are going all out with this thing. The still unnamed ginormous sandwich weighs in at a whopping 1 1/2 pounds and features pulled pork, macaroni & cheese, cole slaw, onion rings and a heaping helping of bacon, all crammed inside a bun.

The best part? The price. This bad boy can be had for the paltry sum of $5. For an extra $100, the team and Aramark — who partnered on the sandwich — may even throw in an on-site angioplasty. If they are not planning to do so, perhaps they should. At least give each person who orders one of these things a roll of Tums.

All kidding aside, the thing looks mighty tasty. And believe you me, there is nothing finer than feasting upon a high-calorie sandwich dripping with grease and loaded with cholesterol as you melt under the red-hot glare of a sweltering Georgia sun. I’m getting sweaty — and a bit nauseous — just thinking about it.
