As we all recover from the news of Josh Hamilton signing elsewhere, let’s check in on one of our offseason acquisitions: Ben Revere.

Revere rode into Philly today, by plane:

He has a press conference at 4 p.m. and will be on Daily News Live at 5 p.m. But first, our new center fielder stopped off for some Philly-style grub at Chickie’s and Pete’s:

Crab fries. Good call. 

Next up, cheesesteak. Has got to be a cheesesteak.

Cheesesteak. Nice. 

Wait. No.

No complaints on the eatery, but that’s not a cheesesteak. It’s a chicken cheesesteak. With lettuce. And tomato.  

Besides alerting him to every. single. sandwich. place. in the city, the interwebs were quick to point out everything that was wrong with Revere’s order:

    lol @ the guy who says “only steak and cheese” and then proceeds to say “#wizwit”. Last time I checked, Cheese Whiz can hardly be construed as cheese and an onion is neither steak nor cheese.

    It’s cute when one doesn’t know shit about baseball. Dude sounds like a broad left at the alter when the possibility of the phillies signing him was pretty much 0. Kyle is like that hardcore chick fan you’re friends with. They really know nothing about baseball but want to be cool so they like wearing a jersey and sucking cock.
    At least the aids infested faggot fucking motherfucker gets his pages views. Hell of a career he has ahead of him, perhaps rhea will pay him to lick her cunt when the advertisers realize he is nothing but a whore with cancer and aids combined

    uhhhh….no….William, Ben Revere was not a FA pick up. They traded for him. They traded Worley and Trevor May for him. He is under contract for a few years. You need to do a better job of getting in position to succeed. Getthefactsdude

    When in city limits, gotta go old school steak & whiz. BUT when in Atlantic City, best cheesesteak outside of Philly is at Tony Baloney’s. Cheesesteak Ole: Steak, Fried Onions, Jack Cheese, Chipotle House Sauce, Lettuce and Tomato. AMAZING!

    This is why, among other reasons, Philly sports fans and Philadelphians, in general, get ridiculed. Now, I am one myself, but I’m starting to think the “we’re just so passionate” and “we care more” arguments are just lame excuses to be as frivolous and ignorant as that old bastard that used to live down the street from me.

    loosen dirt and dead skin cells. Don’t rub your hair vigorously after shampooing, as it may break fragile hair shafts and weaken the roots. Pat it dry gently and wrap your hair in a towel.Stay away from washing

    Pat it dry gently and wrap your hair in a towel.Stay away from washing your hair using washing-up liquid, soap or other detergents as these products are highly alkaline

    It’s genuinely very complex in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, so I just use web for that reason, and get the newest information.
