McNabb's magic hoagie inspires lucky Akers steak

Thankfully Donovan McNabb picked up his regular chicken-cheesesteak hoagie from Talk of the Town (3020 S. Broad) Saturday afternoon before the Iggles rolled up to East Rutherford to dwarf the Giants Sunday. We told you last week how the Birds were victorious several times on the road when D-Mac stopped into the steak shop for his last Philly meal before leaving. After our report, B101's Morning Show with Tiffany and Michael had kicker David Akers on-air Friday, and he said that he would try a sandwich there. He did. The shop delivered a steak with provolone to Akers before the team departed Saturday. Akers, who previously had only 50 percent field-goal accuracy at Giants Stadium, went a perfect three-for-three on Sunday. In other Iggles news, Fox 29 received a handful of e-mails and phone calls from what a station spokeswoman calls Philadelphia's "famously vocal fans," regarding the technical error that caused meteorologist John Bolaris to appear on local television screens for 10 seconds with just under 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game, followed by 2 seconds of a Verizon commercial.
