Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks
You know Hot Clicks doesn't like to make a big deal about dunks, but even we were impressed with the put-back jam by Knicks guard Iman Shumpert last night. On a side note, Kevin Harlan was actually subdued on the call (for Kevin Harlan, that is), which was a disappointment.
Get your mind out of the gutters. All that headline is referencing is one of the notes on this very cool 1985 baseball scouting report on Bo Jackson.
You've probably seen the story by now about former Lions wide receiver Titus Young, who was arrested twice in a 15-hour span on Sunday. One of Young's alleged infractions was hopping a fence at a towing company so he could steal back his car. Sadly, video of this scene hasn't turned up yet, but Deadspin does have this great picture of Young sleeping in a cell phone store.
Victoria's Secret model Cameron Russell recently modeled some bikinis. ... Guyism.com is remembering the top 90 female celebrity crushes of the '90s. ... There's not much else to say here except this: Adriana Lima.
Mets phenom Matt Harvey held the White Sox to one hit and no runs over nine innings last night. He even did it while pitching with a bloody nose. ... Peyton Manning and Eric Decker teamed up to prank teammate Orlando Franklin on live TV during last night's Yankees-Rockies game. ... Before you watch Game 2 of Bulls-Heat tonight, check out the Game 1 recap from NMA.tv.
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. So, in order to better serve the hockey fans in Hot Clicks Nation, I've recruited Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes, a die-hard 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 Blue Shirts 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. ... Phil's Pretty Lady Of The Day is Toronto model Haley Tweddle.
Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna lost a fly ball off the bat of Will Venable last night, but for a good reason: It was out of the park.
