Thursday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Jennie Finch; Tallest Players in NBA History
Tallest Players in NBA History
It's National Skyscraper Day and we're celebrating with a gallery of the NBA's all-time tallest players. And because that Manute Bol/Muggsy Bogues photo is so fun, we also put together the NBA's tallest and shortest players together.
Nation's Shortest Running Back
Can't say enough good things about Adam Reed, a 4-foot-5, 95-pound running back for American Heritage High (Plantation, Fla.), a nationally ranked team. The Miami Herald has a great profile of Reed, who is quickly becoming a celebrity in his hometown.
Tom Brady Defeats NFL
Tom Brady won his case against the NFL and his four-game suspension has been lifted. Andrew Brandt has a good piece on what this means for the league and Roger Goodell. Also worth checking out: A Dunkin’ Donuts in Maine is offering the Deflategate judge free coffee for life ... "Vindicated" billboards are popping up all over New England ... ESPN legal expert Lester Munson was wrong at every turn ... Brady does the Vince McMahon walk ... Steelers fan Snoop Dogg is not pleased with the decision ... Best internet reactions to the verdict ... Best internet hate of Goodell ... What people said about Brady before his first Super Bowl win.
Throwback Lovely Lady of the Day
Former softball sensation Jennie Finch, who once appeared in the SI Swimsuit Issue, turned 35 today. She would've been a mega-star had she come along 10 years later, in the Twitter age. She is today's Throwback LLOD (click here for full-size gallery).
Hot Clicks Giveaway
It's time to get back to school and our friends at Audiofly feel your pain. To smooth the transition, they have given me five pairs of AF33 headphones to give away. As you know, the AF33 delivers detailed sound reproduction across the entire sonic spectrum. It also features a clear-talk mic and control so users can make calls, use voice prompts and control music playback via a microphone and button located on the headphone’s cable. I'll send one to the 30th, 60th, 90th, 100th and 150th person who emails me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of the LLOD featured in this morning's Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line "Audiofly." Good luck.
