Yesterday morning, actor and new Buffalo Wild Wings shill Steve Rannazzisi — best known as Kevin on FXX’s The League — admitted to having told terrible untruths about being in the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001, when terrorists flew commercial jets into the building’s two towers. In the wake of the actor’s confession, BWW said it was “reevaluating our relationship” with Rannazzisi, and now it looks like that relationship has been terminated. [More]

While high-speed car chases are great in cop movies, not every real-life crime merits an extended hot pursuit of a perp. For police in Michigan, a $16 dine-and-dash was apparently worth the effort, at least for a short while. [More]
Reader Dan begs our pardon for not having a more egregious complaint, but would like to share his irritation at Buffalo Wild Wings refusal to substitute breaded chicken tenders for naked ones. Lest you assume that Dan was asking for something unreasonable, he writes:
Now keep in mind I wasn’t asking them to scrape bread off my tender or invent some new, exotic expensive dish. I was asking them to just toss in the 4 naked tenders they sell on the menu instead of the breaded ones. I think we can see where this is going. The waitress told me they can’t do that. I was dumbfounded because this seemed like such an easy request. I asked her why and she said the cook can’t do substitutions.
Buffalo Wind Wings stood firm. Dan was not allowed to have naked tenders with his combo, forcing him to purchase less food and resulting in less money for Buffalo Wild Wings. Read his entire email inside.
