Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Brunchella, Baker, and Bad Reviews

I’ve got an early meeting tomorrow so I’m writing this Sunday night as the Patriots are on. The Ravens just scored so I’m too pissed to write an intro to this damn column. Let’s go.

Guests At The Annual “Brunchella” Fundraising Event At Bethany Church

Kanye’s Sunday Services may be gaining more attendees, but those that attended another church related event he was involved in on Friday night were wildly disappointed.

West performed at the Annual “Brunchella” Fundraising Event at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, where attendees paid $55.00 for plate…for what looked like a McDonald’s breakfast meal. People were quick to blame Yeezy for the low-quality food, but for once, it wasn’t his fault. Not only did Kanye have nothing to do with the catering at the event, he also did receive any money to perform and covered all travel costs for his choir. The catering company has since claimed responsibility for the subpar meal.

My friend Tooky Kavanaugh pretty much nailed the joke on this on Twitter:

Peter Luger Steakhouse

I’ve been to NYC a zillion times, and I’ve never heard of this place, but apparently, it’s been one of New York’s most iconic luxury restaurants for a long time. However, the New York Times vehemently disagrees.

In a review last week, the paper gave the restaurant zero stars. ZERO. I mean, you get points on the SAT for writing your name, so you’d assume a restaurant would get at least half a star for having placements or something. But nope – among the daggers thrown by reviewer Pete Wells:

“Peter Luger used to sizzle. Now it sputters.”

“I know there was a time the German fried potatoes were brown and crunchy, because I eagerly ate them each time I went. Now they are mushy, dingy, gray and sometimes cold. I look forward to them the way I look forward to finding a new, irregularly shaped mole.”

RE: the steaks:  “far from the best New York has to offer.” Of course, he doesn’t stop there.

RE: the salads: “drippy.”

RE: The shrimp cocktail:  “cold latex dripped in ketchup.”

RE: the $17 sliced tomatoes: “taste like 1979.”

Peter Lugar’s has been around for 132 years, so it’s doubtful that this one review will sink it but…ouch. [Via CNN]

Willie Taggart

I know some FSU alums, and frankly they are some of the most annoying people alive, so I can’t say that I’m not enjoying FSU’s craptastic football season. But one casualty of the season who definitely is not enjoying it is fired FSU football coach, Willie Taggart, who was fired on Saturday after the team’s loss to Miami.

But let’s not feel too bad for Taggart, who, per Matt Murschel of the Orlando Sentinel & Tribune, had a buyout of “around” $18 million on his six-year, $30 million contract. Imagine people thinking you were so bad at your job that they literally would rather just give you $18 million than have you around? [Via Bleacher Report]

Baker Mayfield

Yes, the Browns lost to the Broncos, but that’s not why he had a bad weekend. Instead, it’s the relentless roasting of his post -game look:

The Jets

You lost to the Dolphins. THE DOLPHINS. Even CBS is laughing at you.
