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

Out of film after 62 years

first_img “My god, my first film was developed here,” said Freed, who characterizes himself as a serious amateur. “My first camera, a Honeywell-Pentax Spotmatic, I bought it here. My first real camera, too, a Nikon F2, I’ve still got the lenses. This is a real shock.” Brent Hopkins, (818) 713-3738 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

If it’s more than 30 days old, you knock it down and put up something new.” For 58 of the store’s 62 years, the Thorsch family proved Steinfeld wrong. Proud anachronisms that believed in knowing its gear and customers, both Thorsch and his son, general manager Ron, refused to give in to the low-price, no-service trend that swept through the retail world. Though they made the jump to the digital world, they still sold darkroom equipment, chemicals old-fashioned film, big Hasselblads and finely crafted Leicas. They upheld the legacy began when Thorsch started as a young apprentice in his father’s camera factory in Germany. The over-sized flashbulb atop the entrance lured in customers for years, even as the area changed into an upscale shopping district. “People were comfortable with us whether they were an actor, a rock star or just John and Mary Q. Public,” said Ron Thorsch, who started with the store when he was in college, then returned 15 years ago to run it with his father. “There were a lot of great customers – those are my best memories. We had people who came in for decades, ones who came in when I worked there in the ’60s and still bring their grandkids in.” Fred Freed, now a 67-year-old North Hollywood retiree, became a patron in high school. Film, lenses, cameras, developing, prints – he got it all when he’d stop in to chat with the staff and get their opinions on what film to shoot, what lens to reach for. As he read the going-out-of-business sign on the nearly empty store’s window, he did a double take. STUDIO CITY – When the Studio City Camera Exchange opened in 1944, the government had seized all available color film, autofocus didn’t exist and digital referred to fingers, not pictures. Its industry changed immensely in the past 62 years, its building moved and grew and its wares went from black and white negatives to brilliant color computer printouts. And yet the unusual store, cobbled together from smaller buildings and filled with antique cameras, stayed the same. Owner Bernie Thorsch, now 85, reported for work in a suit each day, even after he was nearly blind. Family members pitched in, customers developed intense loyalty and the staff became renowned for its knowledge and expertise. Next Tuesday, that will all come to an end. More than six decades after Thorsch purchased the shop on the corner of Ventura Boulevard and Vantage Avenue, family illness has forced it to shut its doors for good. A few accessories, shelves and cameras remain, but the shop has become a shell of its once vibrant self. last_img read more
