AFTER a morning of shopping at K-Mart & Sporting Goods, we headed into Philadelphia and straight to the Famous 'Jim's' Cheese Steak which has featured in movies. Photos of movie stars, pop singers and presidents are all over the walls. Everyone was bought a Cheese Steak and Soda.
We then headed downtown. Philadelphia itself is full of history and we visited the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, homes of the forefathers before the classic run up the Rocky Steps. The lads were photographed several times by others visiting as they are obviously huge Soccer Stars over here.
It started to rain a little but I don't think anyone minded too much as the walk back to the mini-vans was a good 26 blocks (about five miles) which burned off some of the 1300 Cheese steak calories.
At 7pm it was Game time and we were lucky to see another 'Home' win. Temple smashed Connecticut to win the East Coast Championship. Firework and Trophy presentation finished off another full day in the USA.
