ESPN disrespects Philly by thinking a cheesesteak is a fajita on a roll

Here's a promo ESPN used to promote tonight's Monday Night Football contest between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins.

Because the game takes place in the city of Philadelphia, a land known for its cheesesteaks, the friendly people at ESPN seem to believe viewers need a recipe for a cheesesteak.

Only watch the recipe they give... for a cheesesteak. This awful tweet hit the web on Saturday:

Looks like they're making fajita's right up until they put a couple of slices of cheese on top.

I don't know about you but that doesn't look like any cheesesteak I've ever eaten in Philadelphia. A cheesesteak is made with chip steak or any other piece of thin, flat steak that's then chopped up to varrying degree while being cooked. Not some pre-sliced up ribeye.

Twitter was not on board either, via Foobooz:

Here's a hot take: the people at ESPN aren't as dumb as this video would make you think. IN FACT, they purposefully butchered this cheesesteak in order to send a cheesesteak-loving city into a frenzy, thus getting their promo for a football game in front of more eyeballs.
