Ben Revere Can't Wait to Get That Good Philly Cheesecake
First he went to Chickie’s and Pete’s for a Philly – chicken – cheesesteak.
Now he wants to get his hands on one of them Philly cheesecakes.
C. For cake.
Speaking to Doug Glanville during the Phillies-Tigers game on ESPN today, this happened:
Glanville: What are you most looking forward to getting to Philadelphia?
Revere: I guess the cheesecake. I didn’t really have the great cheesecake my first attempt up there. I had a couple of Philly fans get on me about that.
Glanville: They’re going to get on you because it’s a steak, cheesesteak.They’re gonna jump on you for the cake part. But no, that’s exciting, though.
Here, I’m going to give some advice to marketers for the original Philly cheesesteak joints: BRING BEN REVERE IN THIS WEEKEND, WITH TV CAMERAS, AND GIVE HIM THE FATTEST, JUICIEST, WHIZ-WITIEST CHEESESTEAK YOU CAN SLAP TOGETHER AND MAKE HIM EAT IT LIKE A CHAMP AND DRIP JUICES ALL OVER HIS SHIRT.
And then give him another one.
Spring Training, literally, can't end soon enough.
