Hello all, Andrew Doughty from Next Impulse Sports here with another wonderful compilation of videos, links and random pieces of uselessly entertaining information for Weekend Hot Clicks. Feel free to follow me on Twitter for additional bits of bizarre wisdom.
During the Lightning's win over the Rangers, the team's Twitter account trolled an "LOL-ing" fan after scoring against Game 7 legend Henrik Lundqvist. Their exuberant fans lined the streets at 3:00 AM to welcome the Stanley Cup-bound team home while Rangers fans, especially this guy who bragged about spending $4,500 on a ticket to watch his team lose, were probably busy avoiding another brutally painful New York Post headline. By the way, New York defenseman Ryan McDonagh somehow played at least a couple games of the series with a broken foot. If this bizarre anti-Ducks bird has any say in things for the second Conference Final Game 7 on Saturday night, Tampa Bay will face Chicago for the Cup. Win or lose, are we witnessing the end of the Blackhawks' mini dynasty?

Browns Jerseys Still Suck
The 2015 NFL rookie class gathered in Los Angeles for the annual NFLPA Rookie Premiere orientation and the Cleveland Browns uniforms ruined everything again, including a perfect family photo.
Go Big or Go Home
The attempted steal of home remains one of the most exciting plays in sports but when you're attempting to steal home for the game-winning run in the postseason, as was the case during the San Diego State-UCSB game on Friday night, your head just might explode.
RIP Jerry Dior

So, What is FIFA Again?
Boy all this corruption at FIFA seems just terrible. Awful. And if I only knew what FIFA was I'm sure I'd be really upset by it. — Brad Paisley (@BradPaisley) May 28, 2015
