Game Changer – Burger King unveiled two versions of the item — a classic and a chili-cheese dog — at a private event Tuesday. One executive called the hot dog the biggest launch since 1970s, when the company introduced its chicken sandwich. The “Grilled Dog” will be available starting February 23rd.
“We’ve worked to bring guests a hot dog that tastes like backyard barbeque,” said Alex Macedo who leads the company’s unit in North America.
Burger King started experimenting with hot dogs in five cities last year, and decided to go nationwide after those sales exceeded targets, said Macedo, who declined to provide additional details. Settling on standard toppings for the classic dog presented a challenge because of local and regional preferences. Burger King ultimately decided on relish, chopped onions, mustard and ketchup.
The only thing better than eating a hot dog is eating a hot dog that someone else has made for you. That’s the beauty of fast food in general, but that never translated to hot dogs. I guess Spike’s would be the closest thing, but you don’t go to Spikes for a regular ballpark frank. Now that Burger King has changed the game and added hot dogs to their menu, it looks like hot dog lovers will finally get their chance to experience lightning fast hot dogs. The chopped onions are a bold choice for a topping, but I’ll gladly take any combo of ketchup, mustard and relish and enjoy hot dog heaven.

You can click on the link for the full list, but how about a Rhode Island favorite making Yelp’s list of places to eat in 2016? Los Andes is far and away the best restaurant in our area, and as a local Rhode Islander it’s nice to see them get recognized. I didn’t think I’d wake up today and say I’ve eaten at the 54th best restaurant in the country, but that’s how what happens when you live life in the fast lane.
UFC – CM Punk detractors are going to have some more ammunition, as the former WWE Champion will have his UFC debut delayed yet again. He’ll be undergoing back surgery to repair a herniated disc, according to MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani.
Punk told Helwani that his back is something that has always bothered him, and he figured that it was simply professional wrestling injuries. As it turns out, it was.
“It got bad enough to the point where I couldn’t do anything the week before I went to train with the New Jersey Devils last month. One day I could manage, the next day I couldn’t. I’ve been in agony for almost a month. Chiropractor, acupuncture, massage, cryotherapy, nothing worked,” Punk told MMA Fighting.
CM Punk was linked to both July’s UFC 200 and June’s UFC 199 to take on Mickey Gall. Gall defeated Mike Jackson at last weekend’s UFC Fight Night 82 to earn the right to take on Punk in his UFC debut.
CM Punk has been signed with UFC since December of 2014, and yet here we are, 14 months later, and he’s no closer to fighting in the Octagon then he was when he first signed. I understand Punk prides himself on doing things that everyone says he can’t do, but maybe he should take these constant roadblocks as a sign that he’s in way over his head. Personally, I’m still bitter at Punk for the way he left the WWE, but I do still want to see him fight in the UFC. If nothing else, it’d be a spectacle, and it’d make him and the UFC a lot of money. But the facts are real: he’s 37 years old & if he’s constantly getting hurt during training, what’s going to happen to him when he fights a trained fighter for real? I’ve already seen one cult hero retire too early due to concussions, I don’t need to see another one.
Last night was rough. After Daniel Bryan tweeted earlier in the day that he’d be retiring on last night’s Raw, it was tough to comprehend what was happening. Bryan has been out of action for months with concussion issues, but in the crazy world of the WWE, you never really knew what to believe. There was always the false hope it was a ‘work’, similar to the time Mark Henry ‘retired’ in his home state only to body slam John Cena and keep on trucking. But as the night went on and the tributes poured in, it was becoming more and more clear that this was really the end for Daniel Bryan. As a few people put it on Twitter, losing a wrestler, whether it be via retirement or death, is especially painful because of the universe they inhabit. Think of any other athlete you root for. At some point or another, their season ends and you lose them during the offseason. You can’t root for them, you can’t see them play, and in a weird way that makes it a little easier when they’re gone for good. In wrestling, there is no offseason. You watch a guy like Daniel Bryan, day in and day out, and he becomes ‘your guy’. He never leaves though, because the WWE is a 24/7/365 type of company, so you never get the chance to miss him. Even when he got hurt, like after WrestleMania 30, he came back, cut a passionate promo and then won the IC title at WrestleMania 31. Why would we expect anything else to happen this time? As sad as it is to lose a wrestler to retirement, I’m very happy that Raw ended with Daniel Bryan in the ring, kissing his wife, looking healthy, instead of a 10 bell salute at the beginning of Raw because he died too soon. That may seem like an extreme counter situation, but that’s what happens to wrestlers, especially ones that don’t take of themselves. Maybe Daniel Bryan takes a non physical General Manager role, or maybe he rides off into the sunset and we never see him again. Either way, I’m grateful we had any time with him at all.
Overall, Larry David’s SNL was a welcome surprise, although it probably shouldn’t of been. He’s been great on ‘Curb’ for years, and his brand of humor translated over to SNL seamlessly. The best example of that was the pre taped ‘Bern Your Enthusiasm’ sketch. David played Bernie Sanders (wonderfully as usual) during the Iowa caucus. Watch and enjoy.
The Fast & Furious Franchise Will Now Feature 10 Movies & End in 2021 According To Vin Diesel & His Haunting Singing Voice
This is not a surprising move, as the last three Fast and Furious movies have each grossed over $200 million, with Fast 7 making the most money out of any of the movies. But 10 movies is still a shit load of movies. Fast & Furious is turning into the ‘Trapped in the Closet’ of the movie world. It is kind of cool that it will end 20 years after the first movie premiered in 2001, and there is apparently nothing Hollywood loves more than a sequel. As long as The Rock is involved in all three, I’m in.
Shelley Duvall’s performance in “The Shining” is all-time, and now I know why. I really think that Shelley Duvall was genuinely terrified during the shooting because Jack Nicholson is legit crazy person. Look at him get jazzed up to chop a door down with his axe. If you listen carefully he starts saying “axe murderer” under his breath. OH GOOD.
