Sandwiches have fueled at-home sports spectating since the advent of the television, and the language used by sports commentators subconsciously feeds the hunger. In football, a wide receiver is sandwiched between defenders; in basketball, when a starter sits, a sub comes off the bench; in baseball, the hitter of a walk-off home run is hailed as a hero.
Los Angeles based artist Jeff McCarthy has taken the marriage of snacking and sports to the next logical step by producing watercolors of sports stars (and other celebs) perched on sandwiches. An earlier menu of McCarthy’s creations featured Michael Phelps on double-decker fried egg and cheese. This time the food fest begins with sometimes-vegetarian Patriots quarterback Tom Brady riding atop a very non-veg New England lobster roll.
Time to hit the fridge…
