Best Story of the Summer

It's fair to criticize the sports media for spending way too much time on relatively unimportant things (Ryan Lochte's battle with the truth, for example). I'm guilty of it too. So this great story of Florida State receiver Travis Rudolph eating lunch with an autistic boy during the team's visit to a local middle school (and the reaction of the boy's mother) deserves attention. 

Scenes From The World Gravy Wrestling Championship

Onto another important story. Sixteen men and eight women competed in the World Gravy Wrestling Championships in Lancashire, England. I think it looked like fun.

My New Favorite Baseball Fan

I love everything about Astros fan Valentin Jalomo and his pointy mustache.

Julia Kelly: Lovely Lady of the Day

Hot Clicks favorite Julia Kelly hasn't been featured in a few months and that's not right. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery). 


Giant Dogs Who Still Think They're Puppies

Hulk the giant Pit Bull is my favorite. He just wants a hug.

Don't Drink and Shop

You may end up purchasing a $40,000 bus like this man did.

Odds & Ends

Not sure how Shaquille O'Neal hid in this pile of leaves ... This is not the language you expect to hear on a tennis court ... Athletes who own restaurants ... Did you know there are over 300 Kit-Kat flavors in Japan ... Ranking the New York Post puns about Anthony Weiner ... Important: Foods and drinks that make your pee smell ... Good to see Ashley Graham taking a stand. I feel like every woman on earth agrees.
