Meatball subs are the ultimate settler sandwich. You never actually intend to get one. You show up at Subway and the following inner dialogue begins:
"Well I had the sweet onion chicken teriyaki last time. Not really in the mood for roast beef or turkey. I sort of want something hearty. I guess meatball would be ok. 1300 calories isn't that much. Why not, it's not like I can do better."
So you buy it. It's fine, it's a capable sandwich that fills your stomach, but have you ever felt good about it after? Never, you always think to yourself, "Wow, I could have gotten a six-inch ham-and-cheese with half of the calories and 90 percent of the taste."
I literally could not have described Carlos Boozer any better.
LeBron, Wade, Amare and Bosh were off of the table, so the Bulls settled on Boozer because he was what was left.
He's done fine. The Bulls are probably happy to have him on their team. Of course, they've also realized that Taj Gibson is 90 percent the player Boozer is for nowhere near as much money.
You're hunger has subsided, it wasn't terrible, but at the end of the day you probably wish you would have picked a different sandwich. Yup, that's definitely Carlos Boozer.
