It took Mark Sanchez exactly seven quarters and two cheesesteaks to win over Philadelphia. Thanks to ESPN’s insistence on treating the meaty ‘wich as though it is some sort of history-altering food stuff every time they broadcast a game here, Jon Gruden, during his football lair conversation with Sanchez, sort of pressed the new Eagles quarterback into making a decision between Pat’s and Geno’s. But since Sanchez hadn’t been to either establishment, he quickly audibled and said that he would try both after the game. And that’s just what he did.
Sanchez, ever the statesman, stopped by both joints at an hour I don’t even know. He went to Geno’s, he went to Pat’s. Or he went to Pat’s and then to Geno’s. Doesn’t matter. It looks like he enjoyed the sandwiches from each, though I doubt either was good as those chicken tenders.
Oh, and the fan interviewed* at God-knows-whatever-hour was looking dapper in our Culture shirt:
Turns out, Culture Wins Fandom, too.
*Pretty sure that’s one of the guys from, fittingly, Cheesesteak Sports, to whom I now have to pay a commission.
