**MOJO** - Sandwich Day 3

Pennsylvania's own Wade Miller gets the start at home today. Growing up, Wade would just be a short drive away from Philadelphia, and if Southwest Airlines has taught me anything, there is a reason everyone should go to Philly: cheese steak, cheese steak, cheese steak.

Some people prefer Pat's, others prefer Gino's, but one thing is for sure: a cheese steak is one good sandwich. While the basic elements are simple, there are a lot of variety that comes with cheese steaks. Many prefer the taste of cheeze whiz on theirs. I myself prefer provolone, with green peppers and ketchup. While these variations are common, from your basic steak and cheese to your loaded steak bombs, they all have one thing in common: they are heavy, greasy, and very very good.

So like the gut busting, diet killing cheese steak (eat it without the bun for Atkins Approval!), the Red Sox need to cut loose and live a little. Enjoy the game, because you only get to play it once. The cheese steak may be bad for you in the long run, but if it makes you happy in the short term karma will take care of you. Sure swinging at the first pitch is a bad thing, but if you make sure you turn that first pitch into a double off the wall, everyone will look the other way.

The only person to be wary of the cheese steak is Wade Miller. He can still have one by all means, but he must be sure not to eat it too fast and get a stomach ache. That's why he has to take small bites. Nibble at the corners if you will. Miller has great stuff, he just needs to place it well, so being sure not to catch too much of the plate in one bite will be the key to victory.

If you would like to participate from home in today's mojo, down a big greasy cheese steak from your sub shop of choice. Mine is Cappy's on Westland Ave in Boston, or Romano's on Main St. in Salem, NH. Your heart may be mad at you later for all that grease, but the Red Sox will thank you now, and isn't that what's important?
