America's Next Gridiron Stars
Move over, Riley Curry. You no longer have the best Whip and Nae Nae video. That distinction now goes to a group of 9-year-olds in Milford, Mass., who busted out the dance in the middle of a football game.
Bye, Bye Yankees
The Yankees (and their $217 million payroll) are done after being eliminated in the playoffs by the Astros ($71 million payroll) 3-0 in the Bronx. Dallas Keuchel (and his glorious beard) pitched six shutout innings to lead the way. Astros players drank champagne on the Yankee Stadium pitcher's mound, Colby Rasmus partied like he was in a frat house basement and Buster Olney got drenched. And to think people doubted SI when it predicted an Astros World Series victory in 2017.
Victor Cruz's Fiancée Means Business
Victor Cruz hasn't seen the field at all this season, but he's apparently been busy off of it. Cruz’s fiancée reportedly sent a group message to all of the receiver's side women, saying, "I figured since you all know about me, then I should introduce each one of you to each other so we can all know who we have all been f------ for the past several months."
Lovely Lady of the Day
If I were a betting man, I'd say Julia Friedman will be a top model at some point in the next five years. You heard it here first. She earns today's LLOD honors (click here for Julia's full-size gallery).
Got Any Style Questions?
Hot Clicks isn't just a home for random sports links and attractive girls. We're also here to help. With that in mind, I've consulted two experts from Dress for the Day to answer all your style questions. Can I wear these nice sneakers at a formal event? Why should I spend $100 on a dress shirt when they're $20 at Men's Warehouse? Does cocktail attire mean I have to tuck in my shirt? Email any questions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll have the experts weigh in.
Kickstarter of the Day
Not sure why this hasn't been invented already, but Skreens allows you to view several different things on your TV screen at once. In other words, you can have a football game taking up 60% of your screen, a baseball game taking up 25% and a live Twitter feed taking up the remaining 15%. It also works for a PS4, XBox, PCs, cable box, Roku, Apple TV and everything in between The kickstarter campaign was launched to raise $25,000 and so far it has received over $275,000. There are no free units to give away via Hot Clicks. I just think the product is that good.
