The New York Times Asks When a Hot Wing Is Not a Hot Wing


The shiny 10-inch-wide tin of nachos enticing Carolyn Thalin at the mahogany bar of the Stadium Grill in Manhattan was not your normal gloop-coated pile of tortilla chips. Inspired by the chef David Burke’s can o’ cake at his high-end restaurant Fishtail, it was constructed with layers of chips, cheese, black beans, more chips, cheese and beans, and – once baked, topped with salsa, sour cream, jalapeño, guacamole, scallions and more cheese – it was devised to be suffused with flavor right to the very bottom of the tin.

And thus begins The New York Timesinvestigation into the brave new world of sports bar food.

But it’s okay, because there are only 1,700 more words in the story.

Few Watch Nadal-, Federer-Less Australian Open Final

Neither Roger Federer nor Rafael Nadal reached the final of the Australian Open. Not surprisingly, ratings suffered.

“The Novak Djokovic/Andy Murray Men’s Final drew a 0.4 and 563,000 viewers on ESPN2 early Sunday morning, down 33 percent in ratings and 31 percent in viewership from last year (Federer/Murray: 0.6, 817K), and down 50 percent and 43 percent, respectively, from 2009 (Nadal/Federer: 0.8, 982K).”

However, that’s not the most concerning part.

In 2008, neither Federer nor Nadal reached the final, but almost 700,00 people watched Djokovic and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga battle it out Down Under. While the ratings weren’t Nadal-Fed numbers, they were significantly better than the 2011 final. Should ESPN be worried interest in the Aussie Open is declining?
