12 Days of a Cleveland Christmas- Day 6

We’re at the half way point in our Christmas giveaway. Seems like we’re just getting started!

Yesterday, DJ was randomly selected to win the WFNY Tickets package worth $75 and a Cavaliers player t-shirt. If DJ could go back in time to watch any Cleveland game, he would choose the infamous Red Right 88 game. There were several interesting choices yesterday. Lot’s of 90’s Indians games. Several people interested in seeing The Shot, and of course plenty of fans wanting to go back and see the Browns win the ’64 title. Ah, the good old days.

You guys are doing a great job with the formatting this year. Bravo. Remember, restate the question and then answer the question. Piece of cake. Let’s get to today’s giveaway-

Today’s Prize:

This is a biggie. Today we are giving away a Cleveland Browns #40 Peyton Hillis jersey. It is a Reebok on-field jersey brand new with tags. It is a size 50, which they consider a large, but to me could easily pass for an XL. It’s one of the hot items for Christmas this year, and we’re giving you the chance to grab one. In case you need reminded, Hillis is the youngest Browns back since Kevin Mack to go over the 1000 yard mark in a season. He has over 1500 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns.

Today’s Question:

You know how some restaurants are inspired by celebrities or athletes to create a sandwich bearing their name? Come up with a sandwich inspired by a Cleveland athlete and tell us what’s in it.

Remember, you may enter every day of the contest, but each household is only eligible to win once. In order to make your entry an official entry, all you have to do is comment on the post by 1) restating the question of the day, and 2) answering the question.

Good luck!

    The Jose Mesa Club.
    It contains artiCHOKEs, turkey, and chicken on sourdough bread. All things that make up Jose Mesa in the world series.

    The Dilfer burger.

    It would be a burger with a dill pickle on the top. Nothing else.

    The Wayne Garland Sandwich

    – Broken Shoulder Angus Beef, Foie Gras, Sauerkraut on toasted Wonder Bread. Price is 10 payments of $2.30. You hope it will be great but it will cause you to “soft toss your cookies”.

    @Rick – I think you should get some sort of prize for being the muse for this impressive display of creative outlet.

    That and I agree that someone needs to open a restaurant based on some of these suggestions.

    The Holmgrenwich

    Here we go. At first it was a bit of a shocker, landing in your favorite Cleveland diner, but is now settling in just fine and leaving many Clevelanders satisfied and optimistic for more like it in the future.

    Start with a nice hearty Multigrain Straun roll(multigrain aka multi-threat offense) showing off Seattle’s top bakery, the Grateful Bread. In said roll you have a thick slice of Kobe beef aged in the hills of San Francisco(good beef comes from good pedigree. See Walsh, Bill) which is sure to deliver you an All Pro feeling(Steve Young, Brett Favre and Matt Hasselbeck {i guess}). Then you top your amazing beef with some of the finest melted both Colby and Cheddar cheese straight out of Green Bay, Wisconsin(always a championship contender). Served with your choice of a Seattle’s Best Coffee or a Great Lake’s Brewing Company Beer(depending on what time of day it is). And you can finish off with a nice frozen custard from Storheim’s, a family owned desert shoppe out of Green Bay, Wisconsin (because its not a bad thing for a Cleveland dish to taste like a Packer dish now would it?)

    A large, tasty sandwich and long lasting meal that at first will seem too daunting of a task, but will be a great decision in the long run, hopefully leaving you feeling like a champion.

    PS- Make sure your fries are burnt orange fresh from Austin Texas and none of that old, past its prime stale Pick-6 Louisiana fries(see what I did there?)

    I would create a sandwich and call it the Kosar. It’s piled high with Turkey, Ham, Pastrami, Roast Beef, Sauerkraut, Corned beef, Swiss Cheese, Thousand Island dressing, and a whole dill pickle on the side with some salt and vinegar chips. It’s not very pretty but it gets the job done!

    “Thomas’ Wild Game” – It just includes meat from about every animal Joe Thomas ever hunts for. Pheasant, Goose, Rabbit, Deer, Elk, and Bigfoot: all smoked for hours and lightly covered in Bubba Baker’s BBQ sauce to bring forth the most manly taste imaginable. Wisconsin cheddar cheese is optional, but not recommended. This sandwich has no bread or vegetables, because Joe Thomas is too much of a beast for such things.

  • Stinkfist

    @154… gross, but I like your humor

    If I had a second entry, it would be simply called “The Hillis”
    It would be a sandwich with 5 pounds of ground beef without the fat drained, baked beans, and harbanero hot sauce. It will wear you down at first, then give you the runs later

    There are some great answers here, but it’s hard to beat Prospect + Donkey @ 31 for pure, simple comic genius.

  • REEPJP

    The Boozer Sandwich Recipe(That never materialized):

    This sandwich was going to be a big hit in Cleveland….a great #2 menu item to bring “The Starting Lineup Bar and Grill” the vaunted Foodie Award it had always cherished….only everything that could go wrong, DID.

    The chef’s original intent was for a Pan Crusted Alaskan Halibut sandwich, topped with a little lemon mayo….Unfortunately the fish the chef had in mind was catch and release only.

    Although the market price was to always be disclosed before the meal, the chef also feared that people purchasing said sandwich may escape out the back door while he wasn’t looking! (I know, bad blind guy joke)

    The Lerner

    Well damn, the ingredients change so often it’s hard to know what’s in it or what it’ll taste like when it’s done because it never finishes cooking.

  • Fern

    Good God I have loved checking on this all day every 5 minutes. I’ve cracked up so many times! The Kerry Wood, the toasted Z and the Mike Brown lettuce sandwich and the Sowers-dough are ones I’ll be repeating to friends for a week.

  • Fern

    Let’s open up this restaurant! A restaurant where waitresses really do take away your Cliff Lee after one bite, where all of the takeout goes in a bag with hotsauce in it, and where a man in a ref outfit lets you throw your beer at him everytime a national media outlet reviews a failure from our teams’ pasts even though we’ve already moved on to the next play.

    The Rudd =

    Ham, turkey, cheese, stadium mustard on on freshly baked rye bread, grilled to perfection. This sandwich looks like a sure winner. But the waitress throws it on the ground before serving.

    The Raffy Betancourt –

    Any sandwich on the menu. But the waitress holds on to the sandwich for 12 seconds before putting it on your plate.

    Cleveland Brown’s Sandwich

    Simple roast beef and orange cheddar sandwich on an onion bun. Loads of meet and extra cheesy and messy. Best served toasted with pickle and tots.

    The Earnest Byner.

    It’s a sandwich stuffed with meatballs, sauce and parmesan cheese…it’s stuffed so full that it’s nearly impossible not to “fumble” a meatball out of it. If you can eat it with your hands and not fumble – you get the sandwich free and a t-shirt that says: “Browns 1987 AFC Champions”

    The St. Clair

    A big slice of grilled bologna on a bagel. Coat the bologna with a generous amount of mayo and mustard.

    Everytime you go to take a bite the meat it slides out and you block, I mean bite, nothing but air. You’re left with a big lump of dough with a hole in the middle.

    Seriously this thread should be turned into a cook book and sold in the WFNY Swag Shop

    The Joe Thomas. Made with fresh caught trout (just like what he caught on draft day), Wisconsin cheese, Bertman’s stadium mustard, and served between 2 huge pancakes. Not the prettiest of sandwiches, but it’ll fill your needs.

    A large burger with billions of jalapenos and 35 ounces of atomic hot sauce to ensure that you’ll choke and throw up. (just like he did in game 5, except he was throwing up bricks.)

    For my money, no sandwich would be better than the Rocky Colavito burger. Angus beef, smoked gouda, romaine, beefsteak tomato, garlic dill pickle, thousand island dressing, mm.

    It’s the best you’ve ever had but then without warning the place you got it at moves it to a location in another city and starts selling some awful burger wrap thing instead. :(

    A: The #29 (AKA The Eric Turner) – A hard hitting, one of a kind buffalo chicken wrap. The perfect blend of diced chicken in extra hot buffalo sauce and melted spicy jack cheese reminiscent of ET’s game changing hits. Toss in celery slaw to tackle your post-hit swelling and crispy home fries all thrown together in an extra large jalapeño wrap. The #29 will wrap you up and take you down, but with a backyard, fun loving smile that only ET could deliver.
