The city of brotherly love isn’t playing nice to the Houston Astros.
Two Philadelphia restaurants declined to supply the Astros before Game 3 of the World Series.
In an Instagram Story at Angelo’s pizzeria in south Philadelphia, a man’s voice can be heard saying they “told no” to the American League champions.

“If you think I’d cook for Astros, you’re crazy,” said one man in a video posted to the restaurant’s Instagram account. “We said no to them.”

However, Danny DiGiampietro, the owner of Angelo’s, said he didn’t maliciously deny the request, saying the logistics didn’t work out.

“I had a very nice conversation with [a representative of] the Astros,” he said. “I told her there was no way I could deliver 10 pizzas at 10:30 a.m., 11 a.m.,” he told the Inquirer.
But if it was his hometown Phillies, he would have braced himself for it.

“I don’t apologize because the Phillies are my team and if they wanted to eat at 11 p.m. I would have done it 100%. This is my team, they are my people,” he told the Post. “But to get out of our way completely, I wasn’t sleeping… we just couldn’t do it.”
Astros fans apparently got it wrong — one person claiming to be a cousin of DiGiampietro said Astros fans threatened to “bomb his store.”
Mike’s BBQ also had to turn down the Astros, but they didn’t “turn down” them either.
“We don’t refuse to serve anyone. We fed the Braves twice, we serve the Mets, the list goes on,” Mike’s BBQ said in a statement in an Instagram post.
