This article simply made me hungry so I thought I’d share it with you. The one notable part of the article I found a bit off was the pronunciation of the word hoagie. Do people in South Philly actually say "Hay-owe-gies"???
Sports Illustrated – Jon Wertheim – Road Eats: Sarcone’s Deli, Forget the Cheesesteak and Head to this South Philly Haunt:
As for the clientele, it’s a mix of all colors, shapes and sizes. Neighborhood folks. Center City lawyers on their lunch break. Moms with kids. The type of guys who would fare well in Wing Bowl. As two burly Eagles fans in front of me in the pick-up line waited for their order to come up, one noted that South Philly’s favorite celluloid son, Rocky Balboa, sure would have loved to eat at Sarcone’s.
"Yeah," the friend responded mindlessly. "But then he’d never have made weight."
At that point the first guy started laughing and, like a typical WIP-listening denizen of the 700-level seats, had a harsh rejoinder: "Rocky’s a heavyweight, you idiot. Heavyweight’s don’t gotta worry about their weight. You f—ing idiot."
