Iowa fanwich leading ESPN vote for best sports sandwich


An Iowa sandwich is leading an online vote to find America's greatest sports sandwich.  ESPN Fanwiches on Facebook is a webpage taking meal entries and votes for the contest.

A massive sandwich named after former Drake basketball star Adam Emmenecker is leading the contest.  It's sold by Jethro's in Des Moines and was recently featured on the television series "Man v. Food" with Adam Richman.  Richman could not complete the challenge that six have been able to conquer.  The Adam Emmenecker Challenge was first place in the contest as of 3:30 a.m. Friday with 679 votes.

This challenge includes five pounds of sandwich and fries (to be completed in 15 minutes), ingredients include: a huge pork tenderloin, add our Angus steak burger, top it with slabs of Texas brisket, apple wood bacon & fried cheese, finished with buffalo chicken tenders. We smother this mountain with melted cheddar cheese, and white cheddar sauce, topped with a spicy pickle!

The contest also features a sandwich named after PGA golfer Zach Johnson.  The Manhattan Deli in Des Moines makes the Zach Johnson, which consists of ham, hard salami, pepperoni, provolone and hot pepper cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and oil dressing on a hoagie
