Gluttony Among The Colonists: Deadspin's British Foreign Correspondent Reports From Nathan’s

America smells heavily of sweat. Sweat and old takeout—a lingering, clotted odor, a hybrid of a gas leak and authentic home cooking. This is my first time smelling or seeing the country. I arrived three days ago, Heathrow to JFK, having never crossed the Atlantic before. Now after a long and hot subway ride, I'm at… » 7/05/11 6:30pm 7/05/11 6:30pm
