Hey everyone, Dan Gartland here with your Weekend Hot Clicks. The NHL and NBA playoffs may be over but we've still got plenty of sports action this weekend. Feel free to pass along tips, suggestions and feedback on Twitter: @Dan_Gartland.


DeMarcus Cousins gets embarrassed

Boogie Cousins isn't great on defense, but he should probably still be able to prevent a small child from scoring. 


Gary Player hates Chambers Bay

This year's U.S. Open host, Chambers Bay, isn't too popular with the players. Henrik Stenson said the greens are "borderline laughable" and "like putting on broccoli," while Jordan Spieth said the 18th hole was "dumb." Golf legend Gary Player doesn't care for the course either.


Lovely Lady of the Day

Alexandra Daddario stars in San Andreas, the third-most popular movie in the country, and the show that put her on the map, True Detective, debuts its second season on Sunday night. Seems like a good time to feature her here. (click here for full-size gallery)


Phillies terrorized by airborne rodent

Friday night's Phillies game was interrupted by a squirrel jumping into the dugout.


Pigeon helps Ben Paulsen get a hit

Did Brewers second baseman Hernan Perez not charge this ball harder because of the bird in his way?


Odds & Ends

Cavs center Timofey Mozgov says Joey Crawford apologized for telling him to "shut up."... CFL defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell, who tweeted some weird Holocaust denial theories last month, was cut... D-backs outfielder A.J. Pollock hit an interesting ground rule double... Alexis Sanchez scored on a sweet diving header in Chile's Copa America win over Bolivia... Canadian TV ratings for the Stanley Cup final were the lowest since 2009... Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldinho was let go by his Mexican club team... Twins pitcher Mike Pelfrey found an interesting way to defend himself from his teammates' pranks... A minor-league team in Upstate New York postponed its season indefinitely after only 20 people showed up to a recent game... Jim Harbaugh is apparently a fan of Lil Wayne.


41-year-old knocks out 51-year-old

Kimbo Slice, the 41-year-old MMA fighter made famous by his YouTube street brawls, knocked out 51-year-old Ken Shamrock at Bellator 138 on Friday night. Shamrock had Slice in a chokehold for the better part of 45 seconds, but Slice escaped and dropped Shamrock.


Speaking of old guys...

Former NFL player (and MMA fighter) Herschel Walker thinks he could still play in the NFL. Walker is 53.


At least it's more original than A-Roid

The New York tabloids congratulated Alex Rodriguez on his 3,000th hit in a way only they could.


 

Panthers' nice gesture

The Panthers donated $100,000 to the victims of the church shooting in Charleston.
