Babies in the Stanley Cup
We are continuing with this morning's theme of ignoring the negative NFL stories and focusing on the positive side of sports. This morning's Hot Clicks were highlighted by this litter of Seahawks puppies. How can I top that this afternoon? How about a big gallery of Babies in the Stanley Cup.

Pizza Business Booming for Peyton
Peyton Manning is in the news for his interview with Peter King in which he says, "There’s some different laws out here in Colorado. Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes." Those "law changes" Peyton is referring to is the legalization of marijuana, and the pizza business is a reference to the 21 Papa John's franchises the Broncos quarterback owns in the area. No word on whether Manning was referring to his personalized strain of marijuana or just pot in general.

Guess this former 'Face in the Crowd'
CLICK TO REVEAL
What we said on 1/26/1970: Tony Dungy, 14, student president of Frost Junior High in Jackson, Mich., threw 23 touchdown passes over the past three seasons, is high scorer in basketball for the third straight year and has never been defeated in high and low hurdles and long jump in track.
SI's 'Faces in the Crowd' feature has been one of the magazine's most popular features over the past 60 years. In honor of Throwback Thursday, we dug through our archives for all the NFL-related 'Faces in the Crowd' we could find and turned it into a fun game of "name that player." Can you identify the former coach pictured above?
