The Schmitter Sandwich

The Schmitter Sandwich

Tuesday night's Phillies game put an ache in the heart of Phillies fans but that wasn't the end of the heart burn.  Over the past two seasons I have seen roughly 35-40 games in the friendly confines of Citizens Bank Ball Park, but Tuesday night was the first time I tried the famous Schmitter.  Why have I not tried the Schmitter previously you might be wondering?  I love myself a nice hot dog while watching the Phils in the summer.

I can now safely say I've had almost all of the different possible specialty foods at CBP: a Geno's steak whiz wit, Tony Luke's roast pork, the giant turkey leg from Bull's BBQ, the ribs, the pulled pork sandwich, cheesesteak nachos in McFaddens (which I think they may have done away with), crab fries from Chickie and Pete's, wings in Harry the K's, funnel cake with fruit on it, Italian hoagie from the Hoagie place next to Geno's, peanuts, ice cream in a helmet, water ice on a hot day..  I think it is safe to say I've tried them all.

You may also be wondering what exactly is on a Shmitter.  It is basically a fancy variation on a cheesesteak.  They use 3 pieces of cheese separating some fried salami, steak, tomatoes, and a special sauce.  A pretty tasty sandwich.  What are your favorite CBP concessions?

Oh, and beer, lots and lots of cold beers.  Rinsin' em.

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting


Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
