Football Food for Fans ~ Week 9, 2008, originally uploaded by Mark K_NJ

I'll tell you one thing, after the last week or so I'm going to have to go on a diet. I was at Citizens Bank Park five times in seven days. That's a whole lot of crab fries.

And with that, Mark strayed a bit from what he typically does for Iggles game meals and opted to pay homage to a true Philadelphia classic.

From Mark's flickr page:

And then Wednesday happened. October 29th. The day that took away all
of the pain of a Philadelphia sports fan when Brad Lidge threw that
nasty slider one last time for a strike, collapsed to his knees and
awaited the embrace of his catcher and teammates. And with that, 28
years of silence, 28 years of pain evaported for us Phillies fans.

In light of all that, today's Football Food for Fans is all about
Philly. And there's nothing more Philadelphian than the cheesesteak. So
that's what I went with.

"Cheese, wit" as they say down in my old South Philly neighborhood. I
had the pleasure of living in Philly for 10 years, seven of them right
around the corner from Pat's King of Steaks, the innovator of the
cheesesteaks. Hey, everyone has their favorites...Pat's, Geno's, Jim's,
Tony Lukes...but there's no debate...Pat's started it all (and is the
best, in my opinion.)

You say "Cheese, wit" and the Olivieri family gives you a great chopped
steak sandwich on a soft roll slathered with Cheese Wiz and "wit"
sauteed onions. I also take mine with sweet peppers, which I did here.
As a side, I went with seasoned fries.

In the glass, the hometown Rowhouse Red from the Philadelpia Brewing Company.

Big thanks to Mark as always and you can see all of his delicious meals here.
