Here's something to chew on

why ravens fans hate pittsburgh

Ever try a famous Primanti Brothers sandwich? You'll need a jackhammer to open your arteries.

Two slices of Italian bread, grilled meat, cheese, tomatoes - OK, that doesn't sound bad. But get this: It also comes with coleslaw and french fries - inside the sandwich! All of it teetering 10 stories high on waxed paper.

The fries poke out of the sandwich like wriggling centipede legs. The provolone congeals into La Brea Tar Pits consistency.

This will shock you: It's a big favorite of drunks. When the bars close, the Primanti's in the Strip District looks like Woodstock.
