“I had a very nice conversation with [a representative of] the Astros,” he said. “I told him there was no way to deliver 10 pizzas at 10:30 p.m., 11 p.m.,” he told the Inquirer.
But if it was the Phillies of his hometown, he would have accommodated.
“I’m not apologizing, because the Phillies are my team and if they wanted food at 11 p.m. there’s a 100% guarantee I would have it. That’s my team, they are my people,” he said. told the post office. “But to completely get out of our way, I didn’t sleep…there was just no way to do it.”
Astros fans apparently took it the wrong way, however – one person claiming to be a cousin of DiGiampietro said Astros fans threatened to “bomb his store”.
Mike’s barbecue also had to turn down the Astros, but they didn’t “turn them down” either.
“We don’t refuse to serve anyone. We’ve fed the Braves twice, we’re serving the Mets, the list goes on,” Mike’s BBQ said in a statement posted to Instagram.
