Forgotten Sports Emojis

On Wednesday, Apple debuted 300 new options with the release of its new operating system, iOS 8.3. The new emojis include a bunch of flags, more racial diversity and more family variety. It did not, however, include anything new from the sports world. Luckily, we have you covered with this collection of forgotten sports emojis.


The Day in A-Rod and Tiger

Two of the more controversial athletes in sports, Tiger Woods and Alex Rodriguez, had opposite days yesterday. A-Rod hit his first home run since 2013 and cracked a surprisingly good joke about it after the game. Woods, meanwhile, shot a disappointing 1-over 73 at the Masters and had a few trademark temper tantrums along the way. I still give the advantage to Woods because he was never photographed suntanning shirtless in Central Park. #neverforget


Athletes on Hip-Hop Album Covers

Jesse Nunez, an artist from Patterson, N.J., recreated well-known hip-hop album covers by using NBA stars such as LeBron James, Stephen Curry and more. The Notorious KOBE is my favorite.

Lovely Lady of the Day

Tim from San Antonio requested a few pics of Melissa Haro. Luckily for us, Hot Clicks friend Kyle Goldie shot Melissa and was kind enough to share his photos (click here for full-size gallery).


Ice Hockey in India

Yes, they do play ice hockey in India. And thanks to one generous benefactor, the national team will compete in a tournament in Kuwait from April 18-24. 


Dog Shaming Photos of the Day

Hard to blame Biscuit. Everyone knows how good Vaseline tastes.


Scary Celebration

The toddler son of Norwegian cyclist Alexander Kristoff was just a little freaked out by this popped champagne bottle.

Odds & Ends

Sad to hear about the death of Lauren Hill, the Mount St. Joseph's basketball player who battled brain cancer. She provided one of the best sports moments in 2014 ... The 12-year-old who won ESPN's bracket contest donated his XBox to the Make-A-Wish​ Foundation ... Michael Bennett did not back down from comments that Jimmy Graham is soft, even though they are now teammates in Seattle ... Derek Fisher thinks the Knicks will improve next year and go from worst to first. He's as delusional as James Dolan ... Jason Kidd mysteriously benched Giannis (The Greek Freak) Antetokounmpo for Wednesday night's game ... The referee who worked the national championship game was given the key to Providence ... A KHL team in Sochi hasn't paid its players in more than two months ... Cristiana Ronaldo's 12 worst social media posts ... Electronic glasses helped a blind golfer see Augusta for the first time ... Dion Phaneuf used the "have you played sports before?" card while talking to a reporter ... I love Keri Russell. I love The Americans. I do not love this bikini ... Power ranking the McDonald's breakfast items ... This may be the worst tattoo artist of all time.


Baseball Fight of the Day

Typical baseball fight -- tempers flared, no punches were thrown.

Huge spoiler alert: If you haven't seen the last episode of Sons of Anarchy, don't watch this video of Jackson Teller's final chase. If you have seen it, things may get a bit misty for a second.
