Athletes in the Classroom

In A.M. Clicks, we covered Kobe Bryant's surprise trip to Boston College, where he sat in on a few random classes and hung out with students. This inspired me to search through the SI archives for photos of athletes in the classroom, led by this spectacular shot of the Lakers in October 1981.

In Birthday News

Muhammad Ali turns 72 today, which would normally be an excuse to run an Ali photo gallery except I did that a couple weeks ago. Luckily, Complex has 25 little-known facts about the artist formally known as Cassius Clay, while Yahoo lists Ali's 12 most famous boxing moments. Unfortunately, nobody created a friend collage for Ali as LeBron James did for teammate Dwyane Wade (who turns 32 today).

Lovely Lady Q&A

Ashlyn Coray is someone you should really know about at this point. If you don't, here's a quick Q&A with the 20-year-old California native so she can properly introduce herself.

Hot Clicks: Tell us about yourself: Are you in school? Do you work?

Ashlyn Coray: When I am not modeling or doing school work, I am at the gym! Just started going to body pump three days a week and I am addicted!

Hot Clicks: You're becoming a bit of an Internet celebrity, which means you probably get hit on a lot through Twitter. Am I correct?

Ashlyn Coray: Haha, yes, on Twitter, Instagram and creepy emails!

Hot Clicks: What's the nicest thing anyone has said to you on Twitter? What's the strangest?

Ashlyn Coray: The strangest was when someone offered me a thousand dollars to meet them for coffee. I don't know if I have a nicest. I love all my amazing fan mail :)

Hot Clicks: I saw you filmed your first commercial. How did that go?

Ashlyn Coray: It was so much fun! It was very laid back and silly.

Hot Clicks: Of all your pics, my favorite of you is the sweatpants and a bra. Can we make that the new pose for all the aspiring models on Twitter?

Ashlyn Coray: Yes. Let's start a new trend!
