The lede in this story is awesome:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The battle for cheesesteak supremacy — usually
fought with beef, onions and cheese — has moved out of the kitchen and
into the courthouse.

Pat’s King of Steaks, a South Philadelphia institution since the 1930s, is suing Rick’s Steaks for trademark infringement.

Rick’s Steaks took over the spot in Ashburn Alley at Citizens Bank Park which was formerly occupied by Geno’s.  In other cheesesteak news, Steve’s Prince of Steaks doesn’t appear to be an option in the Cingular Pavilion at the Wachovia Center any longer.

Doesn’t the title make you picture two fat Eagles fans wrestling while wearing giant cheesesteak costumes?
