Underwater Pups

I wasn't sure whether to lead Hot Clicks with a gallery of rare Peyton Manning photos, college basketball superfans or underwater puppies so I let you decide. The votes have been tabulated and puppies are the winner. Enjoy.


Speaking of Puppies

In honor of Monday's National Puppy Day, Yasiel Puig posted a great Instagram photo of him and his dog. It included the caption, "here is the best friend of the man I love my dogs congratulations on your day." I'm guessing the dog is the best friend and not the best friend of the man he loves. Punctuation is your friend, Yasiel.


Smartest Schools in NCAA Tournament

It's not very often you can say "Harvard destroys Kentucky" but it's the case with the average SAT scores of tournament schools. 


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Charlotte McKinney is not only part of Buffalo David Bitton’s 2015 Instababe Calendar, but also she's the March Instababe of the Month. That certainly merits LLOD honors (click here for full-size gallery).


Hot Clicks Giveaway

Need a good hat for the summer? May I suggest the '47 CLOSER from our friends at '47 Brand? It's a relaxed, stretch fit cap made from ottoman fabric with bright colors, bold team logos and a thick reinforced cap stitching complete the look. As luck would have it, '47 Brand was nice enough to make five of these babies available for a Hot Clicks giveaway. You can even choose the team. All you need to do is email me (andy_gray@simail.com) the name of this morning's LLOD and I'll send one to the 25th, 50th, 75th, 100th and 125th person with the correct answer. Please make the subject line "47 CLOSER." Good luck!

Update (6:55 a.m.): Contest is closed. Winners will be notified. Another giveaway coming in P.M. Clicks today.


Best Wedding Gift Ever

Lions tight end Eric Ebron should expect to see more balls from Matthew Stafford this year. After all, he got the Lions quarterback a pair of custom Jordan 11s with “Newlyweds,” “Just Married,” and “Mr. and Mrs. Stafford” inscribed on them along with the couple's wedding date. Stafford’s pair has the famous Jordan Brand logo in a tuxedo holding a wedding ring while Hall’s has a woman in the same pose wearing a wedding dress and holding a bouquet.
