Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Alex Rodriguez Eats Corn

Thursday September 4th, 2014

A-Rod Eats Corn

Not sure if it's because I haven't seen him in a while or it's just plain awkward, but I can't stop looking at this photo of Alex Rodriguez eating corn at Joe's Crab Shack. The suspended Yankees third baseman was joined by Harold Reynolds for the feast, which was followed by shirtless sunbathing in Central Park. OK, I made up that last part just so I could link to this ridiculous A-Rod photo.

Puffy Shirts on Ice

The Bakersfield Condors announced Thursday that they will wear special “Puffy Shirt” jerseys on Sunday, Nov. 16 in honor of Seinfeld's 35th anniversary. Among the Seinfeld-themed activities planned for the night are a rickshaw race at intermission, coffee table book giveaway, Elaine-style dance-off and an appearance by Ozmo Kramer, the world's greatest Kramer impersonator.

NBA Bedtime Stories

The NBA's official team Twitter accounts were buzzing again last night with the #NBABedtimeStories hashtag. I give the win to the Atlanta Hawks for "Horford Hears a Who" and "Spud's Webb," with Charlotte ("Lancel and Gret-Al") a close second. If you're late to the NBA hashtag party, here's a roundup of #NBACartoons#NBAMovies#NBASitcoms and #NBAMusicians.

Lovely Lady of the Day: Summer Rae

As you know, we've been featuring the ladies of the WWE all week in advance of the Season 3 premiere of Total Divas on Sunday. Today's LLOD, Summer Rae, has been a longtime favorite of Hot Clicks. We first featured her in 2010 during her lingerie football days and have been keeping a close eye on her ever since. Click here for the full-size gallery.

Join the Hot Clicks Pick'Em Pool

There are still spots available. Just go to and register, then choose "Join a private pool" and "Pro Football Pick'ems" on the next screen. The Pool ID is "HotClicks35" and the password is "reggielewis." We're almost up to 500 entries, which leads me to believe that anyone who hasn't joined is simply scared of my picking prowess. Also worth mentioning: FanNation has a new game in whichyou pick three players each week and try to see who will outperform their projections. Give it a shot.

Cheapest Ticket In Town

The Rays have always had a tough time getting fans to their game but this probably isn't a trend they'd like to see continue. A fan brought his laptop to the game, faced it toward the field and started video chatting with a friend. And while we're on the subject of baseball fans, how about this large man in tiny shorts (and nothing else) working on his tan at Dodger Stadium?

Hot Mic Alert

Longtime University of Arkansas-Little Rock A.D. Chris Peterson resigned after being caught on a hot mic talking about about how hot a soccer player's mom was. Whoops.

Happy 45th birthday, Mike Piazza. In this 1993 photo, Pizza and roommate Eric Karros feed cereal and donuts to a cut-out of Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda. I don't get it either. For more random photos of cereal, donuts and Tommy Lasorda, visit the SI Vault on Twitter.

Odds & Ends

The grounds crew of a Maryland high school decided to mow the school's artificial turf ... Here's a portrait of Tiger Woods and LeBron James made up entirely of Nike swooshes ... New Zealand native Steven Adams was not happy with Andre Iguodala's comments about the team's pregame Haka Dance ... Russell Westbrook is officially engaged. I can't wait to see what he wears to the wedding ... Aaron Rodgers uses sign language to run the Packers' no-huddle offense ... Roger Goodell finally appears to be getting serious about HGH use in the NFL ... Why you should spend $1,200 on a toilet seat.

Hannah Davis Plays Tennis

Did you know SI Swimsuit model Hannah Davis was a tennis champion back home in St. Thomas but chose to pursue modeling instead? She obviously made the correct choice but hasn't let her skills go to waste.

Meet the 3-Year-Old Golf Prodigy

Not only is 3-year-old Tommy Morrisey better at golf than I'll ever be, but also he's doing it with just one arm.

Wake Up!

Rams rookie offensive lineman Greg Robinson grabs a quick nap in the team's locker room. Teammate Chris Long catches it all on video.
