CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — The owner of a North Beach sandwich shop used a little football rivalry to attract customers on his reopening day.

Yo Philly Cheesesteaks reopened Friday after being closed for six weeks.

Nick Catalano, the owner, was on a radio show Friday morning and said, "Any cowboy's fan that showed up wearing cowboy's gear would get a ten percent discount."

If you've ever been to Yo Philly's, you know they are hard-core Eagles fans so that discount offer really came from the heart.

Catalano said, "If I can help somebody out even if it's ten percent, I don't mind it even though it's a cowboy's fan." We did spot at least one cowboy's fan taking nick up on his offer.

He told us his love of a good Philly cheesesteak is just a bit stronger than his love for the cowboys.
