Be like Mike (Purcell): Colorado kids have a new role model with the Broncos | Paul Klee | Premium

DENVER — For Colorado kids, there’s a new idol in town.

Mike Purcell was cut 10 times, by six NFL teams. He toiled on practice squads in New England, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City and North Carolina. He began 2019 in a league that no longer exists — the Alliance of American Football. When the AAF folded into oblivion, Purcell said, he briefly considered “a (real) job.”

“I probably would have (become a firefighter), if this didn’t work out,” Purcell said Tuesday.

It worked out — bigly. Once undrafted, unknown and unwanted, Big Mike signed a three-year extension with the Broncos, his hometown team, worth a reported $14.8 million — $8 million guaranteed. To honor the man, I drove from his old school, Highlands Ranch High, to UCHealth Training Center, where Purcell, a defensive lineman, became Colorado’s newest millionaire. The commute took 13 minutes. His wild journey took a decade

    An Israeli-style steak sandwich from Mike Solomonov and Pat’s King of Steaks

    Mike Solomonov, chef-coowner of Israeli-inspired restaurants including Zahav, Dizengoff, and Goldie, happens to be a good friend of Frank Olivieri, owner of Pat’s King of Steaks in South Philadelphia.

    Frankie is still talking about their trip to Israel last year, where he ate a shawarma while FaceTiming his crew back at the shop. This happened to be one of many shawarmas the two ate.

    When Resy, a restaurant-reservation service, wanted to partner two chefs in eight cities for culinary collaborations called The Classics Remix, a Solomonov-Olivieri mashup was a logical choice.

    This is actually a repeat performance. Solomonov took the grill one night four years ago, and the proceeds of his sandwich went to Broad Street Hospitality Collaborative.

    Still, they met recently at Pat’s to firm up the build of the Israeli-inspired steak sandwich, which will be sold as a meal ($25) at Pat’s (Ninth and Passyunk) from Oct. 16
