One of the best feel-good films of all time was the movie, Hoosiers.

It was inspired by a true story of an Indiana high school basketball team that defied all the odds.

Now this mouthwatering sandwich with a unique connection to the movie Hoosiers is taking Indiana by storm.

Can’t beat a great sandwich

Some food out there was just made for dudes.

Just think about a rack of messy and delicious ribs.

That’s a meal for a man.

But few entrees are made for a man quite like the sandwich.

During the medieval ages, the working classes were usually given primitive sandwiches called “trenchers” during gatherings.

Those peasants who busted their backs to build roads and castles for the ruling classes were powered by trenchers.

The name sandwich literally came from a professional gambler.

John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, England, is the namesake for the now loved American entree as, back in the 18th century, when he was betting his life savings away others at the gambling tables would ask for Sandwiches unique meal request of the houses’ meat between two pieces of breed.

And then during the Industrial Revolution, American workers across the nation were fed and fueled by sandwiches as they were easy to carry and pack for lunch.

It’s not a stretch to say that city’s skylines in big cities like New York City were built off of sandwiches.

But right when you thought the sandwich couldn’t get even more manly, this story broke the internet about a sandwich that has a very unique connection to the classic movie “Hoosiers.”

Sandwich from Hoosiers

70 years ago, Bobby Plump was leading Milan High School to a David vs Goliath level comeback.

And back in 1954, Plump hit a 17-foot jumper to clinch the Indiana State Championship that later inspired the Hoosiers.

Well seven decades later, Bobby Plump is still providing men with inspiration but in 2024, it isn’t a game winning shot but rather a one-of-a-kind mouthwatering sandwich.

Plump’s Last Shot is a legendary restaurant and sports bar owned by the Plumping family in the heart of Indianapolis.

The family sports bar is owned by Bobby’s son Jonathan and the bar is offering a fried pork tenderloin sandwich the size of a basketball.

The sandwich consists of a mouthwatering juicy fried tenderloin the size of a basketball slabbed between two freshly baked buttered buns.

And the sandwich is so legendary that it was named one of the five best regional sandwiches in North America.

Statues need to be made honoring Bobby Plump.

You will be hard pressed to find a guy to contribute so much to men in America.

Between being the inspiration for the “Hoosiers” movie and now the fact that his family sports bar is making one of the best sandwiches in North America, there is no doubt that Bobby Plump is a legendary dude that we should all aspire to be.

If we had more men like Bobby Plump imagine how much better our society would be.
