Every Gator fan wants FSU to hire Deion as HC.  Oh wait, I shouldn't speak for all of us.  Hmm, every smart Gator fan?  No, that sounds arrogant.

Maybe we're getting spoiled and have forgot the hard lessons our parents/grandparents learned.Subway isn't bad at all IMO.As are PennStation and Jersey Mike's - I LOVE good Deli sammiches.Used to be an old world deli around the corner growing up they had smoked/cured cheeses & meats hanging everywhere.Pickled everything sitting in big ceramic pots with plastic lids.They made a submarine sandwich called a "Poor Boy" on fresh baked French Rolls,.4 different types of sliced meats,2 cheeses some unbelievable Italian Vinegarette,sprinkled with chopped Greek olives.It was like a trip thru Europe - something from all those places.If I could order a last meal it would be as many of those as I could cram past my yap
I haven't been to Subway in ages... Something about it always seemed lower-end than the other sandwich shops I frequent... Those little triangle pieces of cheese always did weird me out a bit. At least they don't still the "cut a trough of bread out of the top" thing like they did when I worked there. It was just a way to make a sandwich look more full...

I do like Jersey Mike's. We have Which Wich here as well and that's pretty good. But you ain't gettin' no $5 footlong at Which Wich...

Took the wife to lunch at Sweetwater Brewery.  They have a beer she really likes, but only on site.  She does not like the hops flavor much.  Her fav is aged in oak barrels and has a distinct vanilla note, not much hoppiness.  The food is solid there and they have a very nice patio area.

I hate subway's bread, always felt like somebody sat on it.   Couple with the fact that Subway Jared (used to) live just west of me a couple miles and the whole place fell off my radar for years now.

Penn Station has damn good bread, and service is noticeably good, as is Jersey Mike's.

I don't mind Subway from time to time, even though I fully recognize how mediocre their overall quality is compared to other sandwich shops. What they going for them is TONS of locations everywhere and good prices.

I would've thought working in a bagel place would scar someone due to the preparation of the bagels themselves.  I swear, spend one hour in those places and you reek of a bagel shop the rest of the day.

never would've thought about the cream cheese.  I will say after selling 1,000s of bags of peanuts, I still love them, its the cotton candy I never want to see again in my life, let alone eat.

Jersey Mike's is pretty good, definitely a fan of theirs. Jimmy John's is decent too. 

But my favorite sandwich anywhere is "The Bobbie" from Capriotti's. It's basically Thanksgiving leftovers in a sandwich, but available year round. Turkey, stuffing, mayo, and cranberry sauce on good quality bread. Absolutely heavenly.

Taht's where I'm at.  Their toppings are good enough, but the bread makes or breaks it for me, and I don't like Subway's.  I love DeBellas, but again, probably not quite fast food, and not fast food prices

daughter was a sammich artist or whatever at Subway in high school

Buddy of mine owns the 7 subways in the area (Good Husker fan)

sammiches aren't great, but good enough and much better than fast food burgers and fries

I once thought that the Subways were a money laundering scheme, there were so many with such sparse business.

Not unreasonable to think this.  As someone who once was involved in money laundering investigations, it does have characteristics but the franchise model does make it harder to pull this off.  Locally, small independents which own the entire chain are really the targets.    Think Gus from Breaking Bad.

Yup.  There is a Chinese restaurant near where we use to live that never had customers, or might have one table, stayed open for well over a decade.  I tried it once, they acted like I was an imposition.  There was a pizza place next door and I could look inside the place as I walked by, empty tables at dinner time usually.

God I hope they paid $20 million to fire Willie Taggert, just to hire Deion.

I used to be peripherally involved in polling (not political).  Our "experts" at times would throw in a "gimme question", something very obvious like "Would you rather be paid $50 or $5 for completing this poll?"  We'd consistently see 5-10% vote $5.

A lot of people don't listen to the question, or hear the question correctly, or respond randomly, it's near 10% in every poll taken I surmise.
There's a polling outfit that I hear from every 3-4 weeks and that pays $10 to complete a poll that takes about 10 minutes.  There is always a question in there that says something like "Answer 'very important to me' on this question."
