Of Course Buffalo Wild Wings’ Spokesperson Is a No-Good, Brian Williams Wannabe

Comedian Steve Rannazzisi, star of The League, apparently had a habit over the years of explaining to interviewers that he was in the World Trade Center’s South Tower on September 11, 2001 and escaped just minutes before the second hijacked plane hit the building.

As it turns out, he has been lying about it this whole time– something he recently owned up to.

The New York Times has the odd story, but here’s the nugget that really jumps out– to me, anyway:

It was unclear how Mr. Rannazzisi’s admission might affect his standing with networks or sponsors, including Buffalo Wild Wings, which had made him the face of an ad campaign associated with the start of this N.F.L. season and which had featured him in commercials last spring for March Madness.

“We are disappointed to learn of Steve’s misrepresentations regarding the events of September 11, 2001,” Buffalo Wild Wings said in a statement Tuesday night. “We are currently re-evaluating our relationship with Steve pending a review of all the facts.”


Of course BWW’s spokesguy is not who he purports to be, just like the offerings on the chain’s lackluster menu. The “hand-spun” wings are really just dried out, day-old, gross-ass “chicken” tossed in squeeze-tube sauces. The boneless breading is more like a paste that stands an only 42% chance of making it down your esophagus unscathed. The “craft beer” selections stop at, like, Stella. The service is brutal. The atmosphere is daycare. And there is no overtime button. But hey, the first thing they did right was tap Rannazizziaisisisissisi for their commercials. Well done, BWW. You suck.

  1. kyle, let me start this off by saying that I hate you. I hate you oh so much. But, I completely agree with you on this one. BWW is disgusting. the real underlying problem here isn’t BWW, its the “bro” Culture that supports it. there are millions of backwards hat wearing middle class white men out there that have no idea about good food. BWW puts on some shitty sam adams ipa and act like they are selling craft beer. all of there food is completely inedible.

    1. Rinaldi, good points, all. But, Sam’s rebel IPA is a pretty good beer. Also, are we still pretending 9/11 happened?

  2. The people who listen to Josh Innes also go to BWW. It’s suburban bros who like hockey a little too much and would only in Manayunk if they lived in the city because it’s the whitest of the trendy neighborhoods.

    He’s a gross fat slob.

    1. Would I be “hip” and live in another neighborhood that is more “diverse” but the crime rate is through the roof? I like being able to walk around after dark and not worry about being robbed/shot/harassed.

      1. The fact that you think you have to live in Manayunk to be safe shows what a clueless pussy you are. I’ve lived in South Philly, North Philly, and Germantown and never been robbed/shot/harassed. The secret is to not be stupid. Don’t make a spectacle of yourself and be aware of your surroundings. But if you really want to carry on like a drunk jackass fratboy, then yeah, stay in Manayunk.

    2. Josh innes’ show is actually pretty good. Way better than Old White Guilt.
      You don’t like Manayunk because Josh lives there that’s a great reason. I hope that Paul jolovitz name is supposed to be a joke because there is no fatter slob than him in existence

    1. ^^This… You’re the moron who went there multiple times until you finally realized it sucks. You already did a shitty post about the place, now let it die. And no one cares about some asshole lying about where he was fourteen years ago. Now do some real work for this site dicknipple.

      1. and by mulitiple times, you mean like 4 times in 2 weeks. who the fuck does that? i dont even go to a place 4 times in 2 weeks if i love it

  3. Now who can argue with that? I think we’re all indebted to Kyle Scott for clearly stating what needed to be said. I’m particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech against “Comedian” Steve Rana-sleazy.

  4. Every commercial Monday night….DRAFT KINGS….FAN DUEL….why don’t you just mail your paycheck to them ? from strippers to Vegas, it’s all designed to empty your wallet.
    Wings ? Pine Hill Tavern. Pic-A-Lilli. The Jughandle. Domenics. all in South Jersey.
    Taco Bell uses Grade E beef….the “E” stands for Edible. eat a salad.
    PS: 911 had 19 Lee Harvey Oswalds.

  5. Hello,

    Off the bat I will admit our fries are not that great – and our burgers are hit or miss. However, the wings are just as good (if not better) than any local chain establishment. I suggest setting your expectations. Chickies and Petes continues to serve food that is over salted and over priced, yet, people act like its another Steven Starr restaurant. Not to mention the owner is a criminal.

    1. Chickie’s and Pete’s wings BLOW THESE OUT OF THE DIRTY WATER they’re dunked in. Chickie’s gets knocked, sometimes with good reason, but their pizza, fries, wings, and a few quirky menu items, and even sometimes their beer, is pretty decent. I’d actually say their wings are + quality.

        1. We agree. That was the most heat our name has generated in the decline middle class 1 x 3 wood plank home market in ages. You are a hope skip and a jump away from Delaware City in our new McHood. Fight Club was set nearby don’tchaknow?

    1. You know what, it kind of is. I could totally see this being a plot line on an episode. Too bad its probably going to get cancelled now….

  6. The food at Buffalo Wild Wings is horrible, but one time I did get a handjob from a Korean guy in the bathroom, so I keep going back there anyway.
