Chase Utley Or "Rick" Orders Hoagie At Tony Luke's In South Philadelphia

 Phillies second baseman Chase Utley always was the shy type.   That could be why when ordering a hoagie and french fries at Tony Luke's in South Philadelphia, Utley reportedly used a fake name.   Local journalist Jason Wolf reports that when placing his order at the local eatery, Utley used the name "Rick" for his order.

Utley has homes in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and the San Francisco area, which presumably he will soon visit.   Without a Tony Luke's there, I cannot blame Utley for grabbing an authentic sandwhich while he can.

While Wolf does not believe the employees were convinced that he was "Rick", why ask for his name if they recognized him?   Utley presumably cannot get very far in the City of Philadelphia without being recognized.  It is not unusual for athletes to use fake names while out in public.  Derek Jeter once identified himself at Starbucks as "Philip" in Greenwich Villiage, New York.
