Hockey Beards

Stanley Cup hockey is excellent. Stanley Cup beards are better though and you can drink them all in here in the above gallery of the finest specimens in this year’s playoffs. (Here's the full-size version.)


It's Not a Major Without Roger

Roger Federer has withdrawn from the 2016 French Open due to health issues, saying participating in the tournament would be an “unnecessary risk” as he tries to get back to 100%. The last time Federer did not participate in a major was the 1999 U.S. Open, which is roughly a million years ago in tennis terms.


Golf Game Gordon Gekko

Phil Mickelson has been named in an SEC insider trading complaint. The Wall Street watchdogs claim Phil used insider-trading tips about Dean Foods to make nearly a million dollars, which he then used to pay off gambling debts. That seems like an extremely bad and shady thing to do.


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Alyssa Miller is your Thursday afternoon lovely lady of the day. Miller is a big fan of transcendental meditation, so you probably have a better chance of meeting her on an astral plane. (Click here for full size gallery).


Drink Some Really Old Beer

Carlsberg found a 133-year-old bottle of its beer and extracted yeast from it to make a new line hitting shelves now.


ESPYs Getting Attitude Adjustment

ESPN has announced the John Cena will be hosting this summer’s ESPY Awards. There will be a lot of “unexpected Cena” meme jokes.


Waiting for Andre

Andy Gray covered Andre the Giant in the Lunchtime Clicks, but I would like to remind everyone of the greatest Andre fact: When he was a child he was too big for his parent's car, so he got a ride to school every day from his neighbor who owned a truck. That neighbor was Samuel Beckett.
