The Florida Lottery today launches a fairly unusual scratch-off game -- one in the $2 denomination that features a series of six wildlife illustrations which will represent original Guy Harvey® Collector's Series artwork.

How many NFL backup quarterbacks get their own sandwich -- especially at a famous eatery like New York City's Carnegie Deli?

Tim Tebow is the only one.

Introduced at Monday lunch was the "Jetbow" -- a 3.5-pound (yes, pound!) monstrosity containing corned beef, pastrami, roast beef, American cheese, lettuce and tomato on white bread.

Carnegie owner Sandy Levine told ESPN the former University of Florida star quarterback's clean-cut image inspired the creation.
