Rare Photos of Dan Marino

On this day in 1984, the NFL regular season came to an end and Dan Marino set NFL records for touchdowns (48), completions (362) and passing yards (5,084). Here's a look back at some classic photos of the Dolphins quarterback.


2015 Lacrosse All-Name Team

Inside Lacrosse put together its annual All-Name Team and it's a doozy. My favorites are Draper Donley, Nesbitt Nicohlas and Halston Jet Harding.


Christmas Beard Bling

​Nothing to do with sports but a company is now selling packages of tiny decorations men can hang from their beards. Seriously. Here are some of the best blinged-out beards the internet has to offer.


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Jonathan from Houston sent me a great, angry email this morning that he was gracious enough to let me reprint here.

Hey Andy. How about you put a stop to highlighting 1) near anorexic Victoria's Secret models (Joan Smalls for example) and 2) barely post-pubertal (young and scrawny) models/ celebrities. Aren't there enough beautiful women out there who look normal?

For what it's worth, I get this type of email every day. Either the girl is too skinny and they want curvier girls or the girls are too curvy and they want skinnier girls. I've learned to deflect the criticism and do the best I can. So hopefully Jonathan in Houston will approve of Carissa Rosario (click here for full-size gallery).

Cut Jay Cutler or Cut Your Wrists

Maybe taking things too far?


Good Will Hunting 2

I'm not going to lie. Sometimes it's a challenge trying to find videos for Hot Clicks. So when you see me throw in a random movie scene or old commercial, that's a good indication that I didn't have much. That being said, here's a scene from Good Will Hunting 2 (courtesy of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back). Swearing is involved so put on your headphones.


Dave Matthews Slap Fights

I've been to a bunch of Dave Matthews concerts and this may be more entertaining then all of them. 


Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld

I spent a good chunk of the morning listening to Bill Simmons' great interview with Larry David (and you should, too). In the meantime, This is one of my all-time favorite scenes from Curb Your Enthusiasm.
