In the vein of the regional vocabulary threads here, I'm curious to know what people in other parts of the country call these long sandwiches?

Please offer your city, state, and what word you would use to name the type of sandwich pictured above.

A sandwich......

It's not a Poboy so I would just call it a sandwich.

I never gave this much thought before. But I think a cold, long sandwich (i.e. made with cold-cuts) is a sub, and a warm long sandwich (i.e. cheese steak, meatball, etc.) would be a hoagie. But, I'd hardly call this a rule around here.
