The first round is in the books. The early winners are the BLT, a Chicken Salad Sandwich (on a croissant), a meaty Reuben, the classic Club, a Philly Cheesesteak, a Meatball sub, a Shrimp PoBoy and a triple-meat Italian. Roast Beef, Grilled Cheese, a Cubano, and others put up valiant fights, but they weren't able to overcome the collective tastes of the readers of the Cup.
The bracket stands as follows:
Today, you'll be voting for the winner of the following match-ups:
- BLT vs. Chicken Salad
- Reuben vs. Club
- Philly vs. Meatball
- Po Boy vs. Italian
Those are eight juggernaut sandwiches, I hope you all have the tastebuds and fortitude to select what will become the final four.
