Pete Rose joining FOX as an MLB analyst; The Rock is a funny guy; Paul Pierce isn't very popular in Toronto.
Hey friends, Pete Blackburn here with you for another edition of Weekend Hot Clicks. Feel free to follow me on Twitter for more fun content throughout the week. No days off!
Back In The Game
Ken Rosenthal dropped some big news on us Saturday afternoon when he revealed that Pete Rose, baseball's all-time hit king, will be joining FOX as a MLB analyst for this season. Rose, who is still banned from baseball, applied for reinstatement back in January and is still waiting to hear back from new commissioner Rob Manfred but it seems like this might be a big step in the right direction.
What Can't The Rock Do?
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was the subject of a few jokes from comedians Brian Posehn and Patton Oswalt on Twitter this week. He responded and managed to out-funny both of the professional funny guys. Johnson's entertainment factor knows no bounds.
Cursing 'The Truth'
Paul Pierce is not very popular among Raptors fans (or Toronto's front office) at the moment, as evidenced by the profanities they're throwing in his direction. The Raps-Wizards first round series should be a lot of fun.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Weekend Hot Clicks' continues to honor Cheerleader of the Week. This week's honoree is Amanda from the Arizona Cardinals. (Click here for full-sized gallery.)
Caution To All Fielders
Red Sox outfielder Hanley Ramirez has been hitting the ball very, very hard to start this season. You can check out evidence such as this if you don't believe me, or you can just check the damage he's doing on the outfield walls at Fenway.
Jaguars Mascot Is Better At Golf Than You
If only Jacksonville were this good at football.
If you're a MLB umpire, they include 96 MPH fastballs to the face.
NBA Playoffs. FEEL THE EXCITEMENT!
Or, you know, at least wake up.
