Super Bowl 53: Buffalo Wild Wings will give away free wings if game goes to OT

first_imgIf the game does go to OT, Buffalo Wild Wings will give away a free snack size of traditional or boneless wings on Feb. 18 from 4 to 7 p.m. local time. Little Caesar’s did a similar promotion during March Madness, saying it would give away free pizza if a No. 16 seed beat a No. 1 seed. UMBC pulled off a shocking upset of Virginia to make that happen. Super Bowl 53: 20 Opta facts for Patriots vs. Rams Super Bowl 53: Roger Goodell addresses no-call from NFC championship Buffalo Wild Wings is taking a page out of Little Caesar’s handbook.The chain restaurant is taking a chance at the Super Bowl this Sunday, as it will give away free wings if the game goes into overtime. This was the first year in NFL history both conference championship games went to OT. Former NFL punter and current broadcaster Pat McAfee, who is working with Buffalo Wild Wings during the promotion, is betting that it will happen.”I believe in putting things out into the universe,” he told Ominsport. “You put things out into the universe, you speak things into existence and I’m hoping that this happens, I’ve been speaking this into existence ever since I signed up with Buffalo Wild Wings and if this thing goes into overtime, I am a medium, all drums, crispy wings eater on a very regular basis, two or three times a week from Buffalo Wild Wings, and free wings for me on Sunday…wouldn’t only help my pocketbook, but it helps the morale of America, so I’m betting on it going to overtime.” Related News View this post on Instagram 🗣 FREE WINGS FOR AMERICA FROM @bwwings… if it goes to OT obvi.. This is a really cool moment for me, got to become a #BWWPartner for a Super Bowl promotion. I’m a lucky dude… Censorship’s a real kick in the sack tho 😂😂A post shared by patmcafeeshow (@patmcafeeshow) on Jan 28, 2019 at 6:48pm PSTNow, about overtime. Both championship games went to an extra period this season and there was plenty of controversy in the two matchups. In the AFC, potential MVP Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs never got to touch the ball as Tom Brady led the Patriots down the field for a touchdown to win.Brady is now a perfect 3-0 in playoff overtime games and his opponent has never touched the ball in any of those games. McAfee would be willing to see the format changed.”You would hope that the MVP — probable MVP — is going to get a chance to touch the rock, but in the NFC game, I mean, there was the standard, ball, turnover…make it happen, other team wins, so…I know there’s been a lot of conversation about the overtime and everything like that…there’s a lot of crazy concepts that we could come up with but at the end of the day, anything that gets chosen is going to be debated upon,” he said. “I wish Patrick Mahomes would have gotten the chance to touch the ball there, but I also wish that maybe the Chiefs could have got a turnover there.”last_img read more

Mayor, Town Clerk were not working in city’s best interest – CoI

first_imgEvidence presented to the Commission of Inquiry has indicated that outgoing Mayor Patricia Chase-Green and Town Clerk Royston King had not been working collectively to meet the needs of the city.This was shared by the Chairman of the CoI, Justice Cecil Kennard, who told the Local Government Commission (LGC) and media operatives that neglect has been one of the key traits shared by senior officials at City Hall.“I’m convinced that the Town Clerk and the Mayor are not working in the best interest of the city…To sum it all, most of the woes of the City Council have been due to neglect and mismanagement by the top officers of the Council”, he said.He divulged that the Commission’s judgment of the staff’s performance and accountability was accurate, since it was not politically driven. This is evident in the fact that the LGC is an independent agency tasked with spearheading local organs.“These are (members of) the main management team, and if they are incompetent or neglectful, are we going to keep them in those positions? I must make it abundantly clear…that this was not a Commission set up by the Government, so no politics was involved. It was set up by the Local Government Commission, a constitutional body; and they are independent of any Ministry or Government.”Forensic auditThe report recommends that a forensic audit be conducted as part of an extension to the investigation, and “criminal charges” must be laid against all staff who are found accountable.The matter of the lease was raised once again, and the Chairman was under the impression that King’s actions of leasing property not owned by the city “may very well” lead to criminal charges.“I’m recommending that there be further investigation in the form of a forensic audit to be conducted by the Audit Office of Guyana… By granting a lease of property when the land is not owned by City Hall, a misrepresentation (has been committed), and may very well amount to a criminal offence”, the Chairman has said.It was mentioned in the report that the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited lawfully own the property via a vesting order. Quick Shipping Incorporated, the company that currently operates from the piece of land at Lot 1 Mudflat, Lombard Street, has been asked to make contact with NICIL at the earliest.Legal representativeAnother recommendation made is that the Council should establish a functioning legal division, with an attorney-at-law who can assist in any legal matters that arise. Given the fact that legal matters are dealt with every day, Justice Kennard made it clear that one individual should be entirely responsible for all legal issues.“[I recommend] that the council employ, as soon as possible, a qualified legal personnel to hold the legal office. At the moment, from my understanding, there is no legal office. Why this position must be filled is because legal issues arise on a day-to-day basis, and there must be a lawyer on the spot to deal with that. You cannot have lawyers working ad hoc on one case and then do another case. You must have somebody there to deal with all legal issues.”This recommendation comes after a no-confidence motion was brought against the Town Clerk by former Councillor Sherod Duncan, and the mayor allowed King to seek advice from his lawyer, Maxwell Edwards, which was later presented to the Council. The CoI is maintaining that independent legal advice should have been obtained, which can be made available if the Council appoints a legal representative.last_img read more
