Thursday's P.M. Hot Clicks: When Athletes Were In Little League
When Athletes Were In Little League
With the Little League World Series in full swing, this seems like as good a time as any to show off SI's impressive collection of pro athletes' Little League photos. So for those wondering what Bill Belichick (I'm being liberal with the term "athlete') looked like as an eight-year-old baseball player, you're in luck.
The NFL's Most Overpriced Beers
Forbes researched the NFL's most overpriced beers by comparing each team's cheapest beer option to the average price at local grocery stores. The Lions were the big winner, marking up their beer an astonishing 765%, while the Jaguars offer the best value with just a 300% markup.
John From Kentucky
New York radio host Mike Francesa decided to talk some college basketball Wednesday and said that John Calipari is a master recruiter and motivator, but isn't that great with the X's and O's. Soon after, "John from Kentucky" called in to dispute the claim. And thus began one of the most entertaining/awkward/awesome two minutes of radio I've heard this year.
Throwback Lovely Lady of the Day
I spent way too much of my childhood watching Dukes of Hazard not to feature Catherine Bach (a.k.a. - Daisy Duke) as a Throwback LLOD. And with all due respect to Jessica Simpson, Bach will always me the real Daisy Duke (click here for full-size gallery).
I've Never Seen This Happen Before
Predators defenseman Shea Webber was skating with teammate Seth Jones when he decided to unleash a slap shot. And what a shot it was. According to a tweet from Jones, Weber's shot went through the boards. You read that correctly. Weber put a puck-sized hole in the boards that are created specifically to withstand high impact shots.
College Football Best Fan Mugshots
I'm not sure how much time Coed spent pouring through mugshots to find people wearing college gear, but it somehow managed to find a photo for each of the Top 25 schools. My favorite is easily Notre Dame (No. 17) while the Clemson (No. 16) guy is terrifying.
I Love My Readers
A reader named David emailed to tell me about a great prank his buddies are pulling on a friend who is getting married. As the story goes, the soon-to-be married friend (Miko) gave an "overly aggressive speech at another friend's rehearsal dinner" that didn't go over with the guests (the graphic pics he used during the speech didn't help much). So with Miko's wedding set for this weekend, the friend decided to get revenge by renting electronic billboards in downtown Columbus, Ohio, with a ridiculous photo and fake ad. You can see them all in the graphic above. The billboards are still going up, so check the Miko4Ohio Twitter account to stay updated.
