This Dude’s 3-Foot Sandwich Was Nearly as Impressive as the Lions Game Itself
The Detroit Lions making it to the playoffs and toppling the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31 to 23 Sunday was absolutely thrilling. But do you know what else was impressive? This guy's sandwich.
Damn impressive, actually.
Detroit Lions Fan Makes a 3-Foot Sandwich
It was early in the second half when a Lions fan at Ford Field spotted the man hoisting the monstrous sandwich that Sports Illustrated likened to the snacks Dagwood Bumstead used to fix for himself in the Blondie cartoon strip.
Taylor DesOrmeau snapped the pic and posted it on X, formerly known as Twitter, saying:
"No matter what happens the rest of the Lions game, the most impressive thing I’ll see today might be this sandwich."
DesOrmeau did some further digging and discovered that the (formerly) hungry Lions fan is a season ticket holder and typically builds a rather large sandwich for himself every time he attends a home game.
Who is the Hungry Lions Fan Behind the Giant Sandwich?
After the photo started to circulate, Mlive did a little digging and discovered that the man behind the monstrosity is Troy resident John Robinson. He tells the paper that he routinely heads over to Grobbel's Gourmet Deli on the second level concourse at Ford Field and buys himself six turkey club sandwiches.
“I’ve been doing it for a long time,” Robinson said. “I made that sandwich (on Sunday) a little bit bigger just because it’s the playoffs.”
Robinson's sandwich is made with turkey, ham, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato on multigrain bread.
The monster sandwich cost Robinson a cool $68.
