Tues. A.M. Hot Clicks: Helen Owen; Kansas City Hot Dog Controversy
WTF is This?
Excuse my foul language and decision not to lead Hot Clicks with all of last night's NBA action (including a testy Bulls-Bucks game and Golden State fans reacting to Monty' Williams noise complaints), but there is much more important news. On Friday, the Kansas City Royals held Buck Night in which fans could buy a $1 hot dog. Seems like an awesome deal, except the hot dogs were something I wouldn't feed my dog Larry, who is staring at me as I write this. The above photo shows a normal dog next to the $1 version. As you can see, this is beyond unacceptable and I hope Aramark is held accountable for this travesty.
Reds manager Bryan Price was a bit upset with the Cincinnati Enquirer and managed to get off 77 f-bombs during a pregame talk with reporters. Lucky for us, all 77 (bleeped out, unfortunately) were captured on audio.

The Fox Steals Home
Louisville Cardinals right fielder Corey Ray with the rare walk-off steal of home base, which I don't think I've seen before. Unless, of course, you count the protagonist in Matt Christopher's book The Fox Steals Home. Speaking of, why don't more people talk about Matt Christopher. If you have an extra minute, go to the comments section and tell me if you ever read his books. There may be a free swimsuit calendar for the best response.
