Joe Biden trash talks Racing Presidents

I went to the University of Delaware, where I got plenty of coverage of Joe Biden, and ate plenty of sandwiches from Capriotti’s.

(I know that I’m always going on and on about being a vegetarian, and I know that has to be horribly boring, which is why I’m planning on completely changing my appearance and hobbies and dietary preferences and writing style in coming years, so that my personal asides are less repetitive. I’m going to be a seafood-and-venison-eating noir writer who practices meditation, plays rugby and has a full head of hair. But for now, you’re going to have to settle for this: the vegetarian turkey sandwich from Capriotti’s is the single best sandwich the universe has ever created. My mouth waters. Right now. It’s watering.)

Anyhow, Capriotti’s is now open in D.C., and Joe Biden was the shop’s first customer today, and the Racing Presidents showed up to stand around and have large heads, which led to this, via the pool report.

Pool waited about 10 minutes outside while Biden kept talking to people inside. When he came out, he explained again to the press that Delaware sandwiches are the best.

“This should end the debate about where the best sandwich in America comes from: Wilmington, Del. This originated in Union Street, I’ve been eating these subs — you all them hoagies, we call them subs in Wilmington — the best sandwich. So this ought to end any debate about Chicago or New York or Philadelphia. The only thing Philadelphia can compete with is the steak sandwiches. They’re close, but anyway.”

Before getting back in his car, he turned to the Racing Presidents and said, “Hey I love you guys. But you know, if you showed up outside of Capriotti’s on Union Street, you’d be in trouble. They’re all Phillies fans, you know what I mean?”
