Even Yankees fans can devour Philly cheesesteaks

ON Philly cheesesteaks, do you go Cheez Whiz or actual cheese?

For the answer, we went to one of the top cheesesteak impresarios in Philadelphia, Tony Luke Jr. of Tony Luke's, which is available at Citizens Bank Park, site of Games 3-5.

"I can only speak for me," Luke said Tuesday. "To me, a Philly cheesesteak is Cheez Whiz and fried onions. In my store, I sell half and half. There are some die-hard Whiz fans and people who wouldn't put Whiz on a cheesesteak if it was the last cheese on Earth. I happened to think that the absolute classic Philly cheesesteak is Whiz and fried onions."

Of course, you can get a cheesesteak at Citizens Bank Park, but what about Yankee Stadium? Well, one of the most popular food items at the new ballpark this year has been Carl's Steaks Philly Cheesesteaks.

It will be interesting to see if Yankees fans who loved the sandwiches this season (judging by the concession-stand lines) will be able to put aside their partisan leanings in the World Series.
