Ryne Sandberg responds to Jon Stewart's outlandish attacks on Philadelphia


Last night Jon Stewart launched an unwarranted tirade (video) against Phillies skipper Ryne Sandberg, cheesesteaks, Rocky Balboa, the Phillie Phanatic, probably forgot to mention your mother and sister, and even Philadelphia brand cream cheese. Sandberg told reporters prior to this evening's contest with the Miami Marlins that he had seen the Daily Show segment and thought it was just "alright."

According to the Daily News' Ryan Lawrence:

"It was alright. I liked the fact that he finally admitted he liked cheesesteaks. He whispered it."

Cheesesteaks ARE really good sometimes.

UPDATE: Jon Stewart has issued an apology but has also unearthed an alleged Phillie Phanatic sex tape
