  1. If you happen to be watching TV at the moment (8 p.m. hour, Tuesday, November 28) they're re-running his Chopped episode.
  2. The NFL is failing. Papa John's is looking at all of their stats and they need to pull pack from the NFL. The Koch brothers? Most of America doesn't know about them.
  3. I recall when New Orleans is Sinking was yanked off the airwaves after Katrina. And Pool Boy...I know you're a legit fan because you referred to them as the Hip.
  4. A website that most people have never heard of (I hadn't until you linked it) hosted by a small-minded person who doesn't deserve any notice.
  5. Sometime around 2007 I bought a bottle of white wine from the discount shelf at Schneiders. I can't remember what exactly it was, but it was a 1982 vintage. Since the cost was only about $5 I thought, "Why not?" If it turned out to be terrible I wasn't going to be out a lot of money. When I applied the corkscrew the cork fell into the bottle. I poured the wine into a pitcher and it turned out to be just fine. Quite nice, actually.
  6. I think the anthem protests do have a part in the sales slump. Given what this WSJ article says, it's safe to say Papa John's NFL sponsorship has hit its zenith. The head honcho's political views and the quality of the pizza aside, they can't continue as a major advertiser/sponsor for the NFL. Polling shows that for people who have quit watching the NFL this season, the protests have been the reason or one of the reasons they did so. For some, it was strictly the protests. For others, they were hanging on to their NFL viewing for various reasons and this was the straw that broke the camel's back. As to why other pizza chains haven't seen the same problem? Some of these people who quit watching are also boycotting the advertisers (or at least doing their best to). Earlier this season lists of advertisers were circulating around the internet and people were being encouraged to stop patronizing them. Anhauser-Busch even set up a dedicated complaint phone number as a result. So you end up with people who have quit watching football and also have quit ordering pizza on game days because it's not needed anymore. Or they have changed from Papa John's to another chain like Dominos whenever they want to order pizza. It's easier to decide to change your pizza delivery source than it is to decide to change, for example, your phone/internet/TV company (Verizon is another NFL advertiser). I would be interested in seeing how much of a drop in store sales there has been on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays, but I'm guessing they won't make that publicly known. As for the timing of his complaint, it definitely wasn't good. I'm not typing this to defend the guy, but just wanted to point out that it's possible that at least some of the people who have quit the NFL have also quit Papa John's because they're a sponsor.
  7. You can also find games from Germany's Bundesliga on Fox Sports1 and 2. Occasionally a game will appear on the main Fox network.
  8. Tonight's game, delayed 3 hours, has brought a new addition to the DL (and I personally wouldn't be surprised if it's for the rest of the season) after Harper slipped on 1st base at full speed in the bottom of the 1st. Legs are not supposed to move that way. He couldn't put any weight on left his leg as he left the field. I'm sure there are tears in some of his knee ligaments.
  9. Chicken 65

    Namaste has it on the menu.
  10. I'll admit, I've only got delivery from here. But I can say that the rotisserie chicken doesn't need utensils (really good!) and the Lomo is pretty tasty as well. The yuca fries are good deal. The first time I got the Cubano it was too salty but the second time it was just right. If you're in the delivery area you can get beer and wine.
