Subway News: Buy One - Get One Free Sandwiches and April's $5 Footlong

This morning I was invited by SUBWAY to grab FREE breakfast at their location on N. Peters St. in New Orleans served by none other than Jared Fogle (the Subway Guy) and Seth Davis (College Basketball Analyst)! Here's Jared making my Black Forest Ham, Egg & Cheese Flatbread sub. I actually never tried it before but since it was his recommendation, I went with it. Delicious!

The guys are in town for the Final Four with the SUBWAY Nation Mobile Tour and after breakfast I had a chance to sit down with them for a chat. We talked about Seth's busy March schedule and how happy he was to have his family along with him for this trip. He even shared a picture of his boys enjoying beignets at Cafe Du Monde.

It was great to see his passion for the game and passion for all college sports in general.

Jared didn't have his family along for this trip but he does take his wife and 6 month old baby boy on the road on occasion. I couldn't believe it when he told me that he travel…
