Philly’s High-Cheesesteak

by Stephen Jones

Phillies’ fan faithful usually
Don’t have much to cheer about,
But thank you Vince Velasquez
For 16 Ks and a shutout.

(Philly blanked San Diego —
It was 3-0 —
And turned the Padres nosh
Into a hero.)

    A friend of mine was in Philly a few years ago and said he ate at one of the famous cheesesteak emporiums. Said they had signs: This is Philadelphia: Order in English.

    Just looked it up: Geno’s.

    Is “Nosh” English?

    Like we say in the Canal Section of Marin County: This is the Canal; speak Mexican.
