Saucy Balls

I've been kinda watching (basically it's on and I'm doing something else) America's Next Great Restaurant on NBC. It's a show starring Bobby Flay (gross), Curtis Stone (yum), some lady who is supposed to be an expert in something dealing with food but apparently only owns a restaurant in an airport [thanks Food Network Humor - good site, check it out], and the Mad Magazine kid all grown up:

He's really Steve Ells, the founder of Chipotle (remember, they put too much guac on stuff) and is a kabillionaire.

This show gives individuals the opportunity to present, tweak and possibly get funding for their Great Idea! restaurant. There's a soul food place, a calorie control place, a grilled cheese place [spoiler alert - he was sent home], some taco joints etc. - and then there is Saucy Balls - a meatball restaurant.

Recently on the show, there's been hooplah over the name. Four weeks in and NOW they think it might not be a good name. Just when I was getting used to it and preparing to say, "Hey guys, I'm craving Saucy Balls!" Bummer.

Now if only I could get used to ordering the Dirty Sanchez from Torchy's.
