US and Russian Sailors Battle for the Sandwich King Throne

Celebrate Cold Cuts, Not Cold War

I'm not sure if you guys heard, but last week a US destroyer ship sailed into battle at the Russian port of Vladivostok. You'd think a fight between the US and Russia would have made major news, but lucky for everyone involved it was only a sandwich skirmish.

On the USS Stethem, a contest was held where sailors in the US and Russian navies competed to see who had the best sandwich making skills. The Russians took first place for best-tasting sandwich, but America brought home the gold — so to speak — for most original presentation. So what did the sailors win? The US winner received a bottle of vodka and his Russian counterpart received USS Stethem caps and sweatshirts.

The event was held as part of the early Victory Day festivities, which also included the crew of the Stethem joining in on a military parade celebrating the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945.

What do you think of this event? I think it's sort of a fun way to compete against former friends turned enemies turned friends.
