Glenn, Lou, and Christian are joined by ProtFootball Talk's Mike Florio, who is not surprised by the Michael Floyd claim; and points out that the Patriots can potential gain a compensatory pick in 2018 if Floyd doesn't work out. He wonders why the NFL didn't harvest all of the footballs after the Giants-Steelers game. He thinks had they done an investigation, they would have discovered that the Footballs were probably very similar to those in Foxborough in 2015.

MashableGloves are sooo last century.

To keep your fingers clean while eating fried chicken, KFC in Japan has now started to hand out two-fingered transparent gloves that slip onto your thumb and forefinger, it announced.

The half-glove look is so that you can wear and take off the “finger naps” (short for finger napkins) easily.

It’s testing out the finger naps first at 222 outlets in Japan, before rolling them out to the other 1,000 restaurants in the country.

Not a terrible idea, both to keep your hands clean and also to keep your food clean from your hands, but I have a feeling this would take a while to really catch on in America.

KFC is one of the last places I would think of to come up with this idea. Their slogan is literally “It’s finger lickin’ good.” I would’ve expected Cheetos to offer these first.

Too slow, Cheetos.

Us WeeklyNot so great. Vanity Fair writer Tina Nguyen went in on President-elect Donald Trump’s New York City restaurant Trump Grill in a scathing review published Wednesday, December 14.

According to Nguyen, the reality star turned politician’s eatery — located inside Manhattan’s Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue — leaves much to be desired. She and her companions decided to try some of the Trump family’s favorite items on the menu — and they were not impressed.

First, Nguyen and her pals ordered “Ivanka’s Salad,” a toss-up of vegetables named for the future POTUS’ eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump. Nguyen describes it in her review as “a chopped approximation of a Greek salad, smothered in melting goat cheese and dressing and missing the promised olives, that seemed unlikely to appetize a SoulCycle-obsessed, smoothie-guzzling heiress. … But the cuboid plant matter ended up being the perfect place to hide several uneaten Szechuan dumplings.” She didn’t like those either, describing them as “flaccid.”

Next, Nguyen bit into Donald Trump Jr.’s signature dish: filet mignon cooked medium-rare, with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. “The steak came out overcooked and mealy, with an ugly strain of pure fat running through it, crying out for A.1. sauce (it was missing the promised demi-glace too). The plate must have tilted during its journey from the kitchen to the table, as the steak slumped to the side over the potatoes like a dead body inside a T-boned minivan,” she quipped of the unappetizing meal.  

I get that Trump and Vanity Fair are feuding because the magazine’s editor-in-chief Graydon Carter offended him at some point and the food at Trump’s Grill probably sucks, but what do you expect?

This restaurant is clearly for people who want to eat at a place with Trump’s name on it or to just say they’ve been there. People will eat there whether the food is good or not. 

But the big problem I had with this review was this part: 

On another level, Trump Grill falls somewhat short of that lofty goal. The restaurant features a stingy number of French-ish paintings that look as though they were bought from Home Goods.

There is NOTHING wrong with Home Goods. It is a wonderland of classy stuff. 

Tina Nguyen has some nerve insulting one of the greatest stores in this country. You can trash Trump’s Grill as the worst restaurant in America, but don’t you dare take Home Goods down with it.
