The Statistician Penn Sille @pennsille Penn knows football is a numbers game. He loves to analyze numbers, making him a fantasy football powerhouse. To maximize his teams, he created an algorithm based on a player's age, height, weight and wonderlic score that would stump Stephen Hawking. He loves to tailgate (if there's WiFi).

Buffalo Wingssource: Tervis


  • -3 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
  • -1 1/2 cups Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wings sauce
  • -1 cup all-purpose flour
  • -1 stick unsalted butter
  • -2 tablespoons honey
  • -1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • -1 tablespoon paprika
  • -Vegetable or peanut oil for frying
  • -Celery sticks


Mix the flour and paprika in a bowl. Coat the wings in the mixture, tapping off any excess. Fry the wings in batches at 375°F for 10-15 minutes. Turn as needed, so that they are cooked through and deep golden brown. Remove the wings from the oil with tongs and place on a rack to drain.

Combine the wing sauce, Sriracha, butter and honey in a medium pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the butter has melted and the sauce has thickened slightly. Put the cooked wings in the sauce and toss them. Then place on plate and serve with blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing on the side, along with celery sticks. Serves 6.
