Retire the Cheesesteak? Puh-lease…

Wanna rile up the citizenry in Philadelphia? Mess with the Cheesesteak. Philadelphia’s favorite sandwich is also our most controversial food choice. More controversial than the Water Ice vs. Gelati debate. More controversial than McNabb vs. Kolb. Although, probably not as controversial as Graziani vs. D’Orazio.

Karen Heller wants us to replace Philadelphia’s signature sandwich with the Roast Pork with Broccoli Rabe.  Now, we’ve been tracker Karen Heller over at HammRadio.com for a while now.  In fact, we roasted her in the earliest stages of our blog.  It was that kind of rant that has made hammradio.com famous.  Okay, not really.

Look don’t get me wrong, I understand her point.  Also, I do adore a Roast Pork with Sharp Provolone with some Broccoli Rabe.  And the fight between Councilman Bill Green and Councilman DiCicco seems quite silly.  But the Cheesesteak is synonomous with Philadelphia.  And believe me, even if you were going to replace the Cheesesteak, don’t tell me controversy wouldn’t brew with Tony Luke’s or John’s Roast Pork or DiNics or Chickie’s.  

Besides, I have this really cool domain name, CheesesteakGuru.com.  And Roast Pork guru doesn’t sound right. Or does it?
