Weekend Hot Clicks: Cheerleader Liz; Taylor Swift blamed for power outage
The 2015 Open Championship was delayed for about ten hours on Saturday due to bad weather, with the wind being a real issue. It was so overwhelming that it made the simple task of pouring water challenging. Or how about Louis Oosthuizen's ball being blown across the green as he waited to putt? The same thing happened to Dustin Johnson, too. The weather conditions will force the first Monday finish at Open Championship since 1988 and only the second Monday finish all-time. Feel free to check out this gallery of the hottest WAGs of PGA Tour golfers as you wait out the bad weather.
Daniel Brooks nailed an ace at the Open Championship despite that insane wind:
Taylor Swift To Blame?
A faulty circuit breaker caused a power outage at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., Friday. The repeated delays eventually forced the suspension of the Dodgers-Nationals game. However, Taylor Swift was receiving some of the blame initially courtesy of Max Scherzer and Joc Pederson.
Well who was the last one to use Nationals Park last? Taylor Swift.. I blame her for the power outs tonight. We now have #BadBlood — Max Scherzer (@Max_Scherzer) July 18, 2015
@taylorswift13 your concert used up all the electricity in DC..thanks for helping start the 2nd half with a bang— Joc Pederson (@yungjoc650) July 18, 2015
Lovely Lady of the Day
Our LLOD for this mid-July weekend is Liz the gorgeous cheerleader from the Houston Texans (Click here for full-size gallery).
I don't think anyone will ever know why guard Diante Garrett, now playing for the Chicago Bulls at Las Vegas Summer League, decided to pump-fake a free-throw attempt. It caused a whole bunch of chaos in the form of a gigantic lane violation and ensured his name will live in Summer League infamy....not a great place to be.
That Is a Nice Poster
Amidst some Lakers fans’ fears that D’Angelo Russell might be a bust (don't be ignorant...it's way too early too tell), Jordan Clarkson’s quietly been having a nice summer league.
