Friday's PM Clicks: Sofia Vergara; NHL Goalie Masks of 2014-15
NHL Goalie Masks by Team
The NHL season is winding down and I've yet to feature goalie masks in Hot Clicks. That's unacceptable. Luckily, our photo editors just created the 70-frame gallery above of the best goalie masks this season (click here for full-size version). I'm still waiting for someone to take a page from this 15-year-old's book and get a SI Swimsuit model airbrushed onto their mask.
Final Four Preview
The Final Four kicks off Saturday night in Indianapolis. SI's experts have made their predictions. I have made my prediction (Michigan State). Here are some other random links: Sexy superfans of the Final Four ... Recipes for your Final Four soiree ... A Final Four drinking game ... ESPN writer Jemele Hill does not think Kentucky should be considered an all-time great team ... Who would you draft: Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns? ... 31 reasons this will be the best Final Four ever ... Mascot history of the four remaining teams ... Kentucky is not happy about the 40-0 shirts making the rounds.
That Time Joe Theismann Met Andre the Giant
I really wish this had happened. In the mid '70s, former Redskins coach George Allen reportedly offered Andre the Giant a $100,000 contract to join the team as an offensive lineman. There are a few versions of the story so it's tough to tell what's true, but it made for a hell of a photo.
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
Thunder Treats' Cougar Madness tournament is down to the final two--Kate Beckinsale and Sofia Vergara. I wasn't sure who to choose. Luckily, good friend Anastasia Ashley stopped by for a visit and cast her vote for Vergara. And if anyone knows good-looking women, it's Anastasia. I'm hoping this show of support pushes Vergara to victory. In the meantime, she earns LLOD honors (click here for full-size gallery).
Hot Clicks Giveaway
There are only three more games left this college basketball season. If you have any sense, you’ll be glued to the television watching the Final Four this weekend. And chances are you'll be hungry. That's where we come in. I have five snack packs with some great treats -- @barkTHINS, @enjoysalt4life, @ginnybakes, @Justins, and @Popcorn_Indiana -- to give away. I’ll send a basket of game-day snacks to the 4th, 8th, 16th, 32nd and 68th person who emails me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of the college basketball coach with the painted toenails. The answer was in A.M. Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line “Game Day Snacks.”
