Wednesday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Natalie Morris; Groom Walks in as Ric Flair
MLB’s second wild-card game takes place Wednesday night, with the Cubs and Pirates squaring off. I kind of hate these games, but that doesn’t mean you should be unprepared. Here’s a look at the pitching matchup, a preview of the game and a deeper study of starting pitchers Jake Arrieta and Gerrit Cole.
The Thabo Trial
Shouldn’t this be a bigger deal? Atlanta Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in an incident that left him with a broken leg, and his trial began today. Sefolosha’s injury kept him out of the NBA playoffs, where the Hawks lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Here is SI.com's breakdown of the first day.
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

The Donald Trump Conspiracy

Do you love trucks? Do you love jackets? Do you love the NFL? Well then you're in luck! Following Levi’s inaugural season as naming rights sponsor of Levi’s Stadium and the successful launch of the Levi's X 49ers line, Levi’s has expanded its NFL Collection of officially licensed apparel to include six additional NFL teams (Bears, Broncos, Packers, Patriots, Giants and Jets). And as luck would have it, they’ve given Andy Gray five twill Levi’s NFL Trucker jackets to give away to readers of Hot Clicks Nation (nation? really Andy?). You’ll have to pick between those seven teams. Andy will send one to the 50th, 100th, 150th, 200th and 250th person who emails him (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of the LLOD from today's A.M. Clicks. Please make the subject line Levi’s.
