Sam, Football Players Help Build Record Sushi Roll

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Sam The Minuteman and many members of the UMass football team took part in the building of the longest California sushi roll in the world. Read the story in the Springfield Republican.

Volunteers wearing T-shirts that read "UMass, Amherst home of the world's longest California roll" sealed 650 sheets of nori - seaweed - then "glued" it in place with about 200 pounds of sushi rice, then laid on avocado, cucumber and Alaskan crab ... and then rolled all of it into a 422-foot long sushi roll, eclipsing the current record of 340 feet set last November at the University of California, Berkeley.
