Wednesday's P.M. Hot Clicks
The photo in the click-through gallery above is from last night's Grizzlies-Thunder game. As you can see, Memphis center Marc Gasol had a strong reaction to being on the bottom of a pile up. However, an angry, exaggerated expression is par for the course for Gasol. Just go through this gallery to see Gasol's fine work from this year's playoffs. As a bonus, if you make it to Picture 10, you can also see the best unintentionally dirty photo from the playoffs.
A pair of Hot Clicks favorites, Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson and Brazilian bombshell Lisalla Montenegro are headed for the altar. As you can see here, everyone in Hot Clicks Nation should be bowing down to Wilson.
American model Abigail Ratchford gets today's LLOD honors.
Former Cardinals infielder Fernando Tatis is an artist -- an MS Paint artist.
As longtime readers of Hot Clicks know, my NHL knowledge is not strong. In fact, I'm rooting for the Kings solely based on Dustin Penner taking a shot at Nickelback on Twitter. In order to better serve the hockey fans in Hot Clicks Nation, I've recruited Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes, a diehard NHL fan, to regularly give us his thoughts throughout the playoffs. Hughes also wanted to have his version of the "Lovely Lady of the Day," so he's also going to share with us the "Phil's Pretty Lady of the Day" (whether they're a hockey fan or not). Here is today's entry by Hughes, who you can follow on Twitter for more hockey talk.
Thoughts on last night: I was a little surprised San Jose was able to finish off the sweep of Vancouver. The Sharks are emerging as a very dangerous team in a conference that was already stacked. ... Islanders forward John Tavares is filthy, as you can see by this goal. I wouldn't be surprised to see the New York-Pittsburgh series go the distance, especially with the way Penguins goalie Marc-André Fleury is playing. ... As for tonight's games, I like the Leafs and Rangers to even up their respective series. Look for James van Riemsdyk of Toronto and Ryan Callahan of New York to step up big. My West Coast bias also says the Ducks and Kings will take leads in their series as well. ... My Pretty Lady Of The Day is Toronto model Haley Tweddle.
Adam Dahl, of Chicago, says, "I don't know this boxer's name, but last night I was trying to watch the Blackhawks game without the Chicago announcers (I'm a Wings fan!), so I turned to NBC Sports Network to see if the game was on (which, of course, it wasn't). But this boxer had just won a fight, and the post-fight interview turned into one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen." Adam says ridiculous, I say awesome! Every boxer should break into a song after winning a fight.
UPDATE: Twitter follower @the4thdoor has come through with the boxer's name: Tyson Fury.
There is a lot going on here: We have a classic case of local news covering a ridiculous story. We have a repulsive story about a woman with a broken toilet bowl. And we finish it off with the woman using a funny malaprop.
