A Buffalo Wing Sauce-Stained Spoiler: Giants to Win Super Bowl XLVI

As promised, here’s my official Super Bowl XLVI prediction, using Buffalo chicken wing bones! The game will feature the heroic New York Giants vs. the despised New England Patriots, and while I’m sure you would have enjoyed the game anyway, just think how much more fun you’re going to have winning all this easy money too.

The best thing about using bones to predict the winner is not having to waste time gathering information, analyzing game plans, and considering any actual facts. 

No, all the talking haircuts on TV can do that, I’m sticking with this time-tested, definitely-not-an-obvious-joke method. By the way, the fact that the "N" is backwards makes this even more of a sure thing. Why? Don't worry about it.

On a personal note, Michele and I were at Candlestick Park yesterday for the NFC Championship Game! The weather was dreadful, but the old ball yard was rocking, and the game turned into an epic defensive struggle that I’m glad we got to see in person. Go Giants! Enjoy!

Sorry, Chef John, but as a future San Fran local (and a life-long, die-hard Redskins fan), I have to say how disappointing last night was. We'll just hafta wait and see how your bones stack up...

I don't know Chef John... I'm seeing an E, not a double Y there.

Vinny from NH said...

Yeah, The Y could be an E with the bone above and below the / part of the Y. Either way, you win this year!

Jo Westall said...

Um, so the recipe is where?

The Niners couldn't hold onto the football (or stay away from it) on kick returns ... jeez louise take the rookie out of the game coach!

Got any recipes for Crow Pie? Meager pickings indeed.

From a 4mer Niners fan. Blah ...

I see an E as well but considering you're born and raised in New York...

Also, I hope next season Alex Smith learns how to step up in the pocket and make plays instead of freezing, dancing around and throwing the ball at receivers feet.

You said "you're welcome". Is there peace in the Middle East? Are cats and dogs living in harmony? Are ponytails on 50 year old dudes suddenly cool?

I despise both teams but I'll enjoy my ginger garlic wings that's for sure.

Hey Chef - your bookie Vito is looking for you. I think he wants to have some words. Something about a ball peen hammer and vice grips. He didn't sound happy.

Just thought you'd wanna know.

It's more interesting than the 2 in the SB but I see an "E" not a "Y".

Mona said...

Not only did I see an N and a Y but if you look carefully, you can also see a G... sort of. So NY Giants it is!

Brooke @ Foodwoolf said...

Wow, John. You're incredible. Can't wait to share this with my sports-obsessed husband.

Chef John said...

Thanks! ...and by "share with" I'm assuming you mean "convince to bet all our savings on" :)

Sorry John but it was an N and an E
New England all the way.
Time for some payback

The Enemy of Eggs said...

Chef John, that old conjurer does it again! Can I nominate John's wings for MVP?

Stephanie said...

Wow! I should have placed a bet. You're amazing, Chef John!

Jesse from Detroit said...

Ha! Now let's see 'em do the 2012 elections.

Olivia Naeger said...

The N is backward, is it not?
