Deli sandwiches are some of the finest food money can buy. They can serve as lunch, dinner, brunch, late-night snacks, breakfast, dessert, appetizers, finger foods, birthday cakes and clothing. There is probably no greater resource on Earth.
Even better, as Gavin was doing his very serious sandwich reporting, Matz walked through the door:

His buddy Jacob deGrom was also there:

But strangely, Matz didn't purchase the hero that is named after him. He ordered the Boone, which he says is more "standard."
Sure, Matz threw 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball, while going 3-for-3 with four RBIs in his Major League debut on Sunday, but this ladies and gentlemen -- this is the ultimate accomplishment: Being so good that you have a deli sandwich named after you, and then going to that deli, and not ordering it.
