Syracuse Delis Will Have "The Doug Marrone" On Their Menus By Thursday

A well-aged steak.

Sizzling chicken fajitas.

A giant bowl of salad with fresh veggies smothered in bleu cheese.

A foot-long hot dog covered in mustard, relish and sauerkraut.

These all seemed like the kind of hearty meals that Doug Marrone might have chowed down on when he came home from Syracuse's upset victory over West Virginia. A win of that magnitude certainly deserved a reward for all of the hard work and time put into it.

Ol' Marrone, though, he's a man of repetition and of simple things. So when it came time for his victory meal, Marrone kept it simple. Extremely simple.

...Honestly, I go home, and I have a bologna and cheese sandwich," he said. "That’s what I eat. I’ve been eating that since I was a little kid. Its one thing I actually do look forward to. I also drink about four Gatorades. Then I put the TV on and I try to get away for awhile. Because I know the next day when I get up I have to go right back to work.

Doug Marrone and your 12-year-old cousin eat the exact same meal for lunch.

The Gatorade has to be orange, right? I just has to.


I just hope Doug is hitting the gym in the morning. That's about 1,000 calories in one go, not to mention the sugar involved. And I'm just going to go ahead and assume Marrone's eating white bread instead of unbleached, organic whole wheat. That's a helluva carbo-load in the evening, Doug.And I'm not even going to talk to you about what bologna is made of. All I'm saying is you might want to think about some Lite Mayo moving forward. That's all.

(By the way, when will Wegman's sell out of bologna? Sunday? Friday? Is there a better spokesman in the Greater Syracuse Area right now?)
