We’re baseball fans first at YFSF, foodies second. So just as last year we bring you a game thread to discuss all things "Top Chef" finale, which airs tonight at 10pm.
It should be an interesting affair. First, there’s Dale. We wonder: will Dale attempt to cram 74 flavors and textures into one dish? Will he forget to add flour to his roux? And Casey, who’s got some serious Sox appeal. Will she continue to kick everybody’s ass, as she’s done for several weeks running? And if she does, will she stop with the "who, me? I won? Really? Should I feign surprise again?" look? Or will she lose, only to return to Dallas to sign a massive ten-year contract as Tom Hicks’ personal chef? And lastly, Hung. Hung: the sure favorite of New York sports fans everywhere. He’s supremely talented. He’s brash. He’s arrogant. He assumes everyone else is wrong. He has disdain for the judges. He assumes that he can do everything better than everyone else, even if he can’t. The big question is whether he will create tonight, and not just exhibit world-class technical skill. Like a certain Yankees third baseman, Hung needs to get it done on the big stage.
So who will it be? We don’t make predictions, but we’re going with either Hung or Casey, as Dale seems like the type of guy who would make a Fenway Frank but forget the Frank. Use this as your thread for all things TC.
DISCLAIMER: PLEASE do not spoil the results if you have inside information. We know some websites have been advertising the possible outcome, but we here at YFSF don’t want to know. Keep a lid on it until Chef Tom awards the title. For our West Coast readers, that means 11pm EST — those on the left coast may want to sit this thread out.
