Rare Photos of Barry Sanders

 In this morning's Hot Clicks, I referred to Barry Sanders as "the greatest running back of my lifetime" and I only received one email calling me crazy. Today is Sanders's 47th birthday and we're celebrating with the above gallery of his best photos (here's the full-size version). The 1988 Oklahoma State cheerleading squad is excited. Are you?


World's Most Expensive Stadium

The main venue for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will cost an estimated $2 billion, pushing it past current record holder MetLife Stadium ($1.6 billion) for most expensive sports stadium in the world. Here's what the stadium will look like.


Cast Your NWHL Jersey Design Vote

The National Women's Hockey League season is nearly here and its teams need your help deciding on their uniforms. I'm going on record as saying the New York Riveters uniform (on the left) is one of the top five in all of sports.


Throwback Lovely Lady of the Day

 Elle Macpherson has not aged since 1986, at least according to this TMZ tweet. She earns Throwback LLOD honors (here's the full-size gallery). 


U.S. Squeaks Past France

USA beat France 82-0 in the semifinals of the 2015 IFAF American Football Men's World Championship. I'm predicting a similar score for October, when the Patriots play the Colts, who started this whole Deflategate mess.


Bonus LLOD: Charlotte McKinney!

​ Since there is just about nothing to watch sports-wise on TV tonight, I'm giving you a bonus LLOD. Her name is Charlotte McKinney and she just came in for a 2016 SI Swimsuit Casting. Perhaps you've heard of her.


Aristocratic Cats

These are both incredibly dumb and awesome at the same time.


Love These Uniforms


Tiger Woods, Still Struggling


Three Legends. One Photo.

Odds & Ends

An Oklahoma State donor offered Dez Bryant co-naming rights on the school's stadium​ ... Mark Cuban proposed a 20-team playoff field to fellow owners... 2015-16 NHL Goalie Mask preview ... How the Padres GM messed up the team in less than a year ... This would be a major story if it happened in America right now ... Cardale Jones spent the ESPYs tweeting at Ronda Rousey ... Wayne Rooney would consider eventually moving to MLS ... Lennox Lewis said that in 2002 the WWE offered him a pile of cash to fight Brock Lesnar ... Amazon Prime Day was a bust ... Paul Rudd's best movie roles ... The 26 most watchable things on TV ... The AARP is making fun of Tiger Woods.


Tyrann Mathieu's PETA Ad 

The Cardinals defensive back demonstrates why you shouldn't leave your dog in a hot car.


Worst Movie Special Effects Ever

Great compilation by our pals at World Wide Interweb.


Air Heatherton

The lovely Crystal Marie Denha, who needs to be a LLOD soon, filed this report on my dumb Erin Heatherton video. 


Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out
