Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Vicky Pattison; Larry Bird Sells Cars
Throwback Thursday: Larry Bird Wants You To Buy a Ford Escort
As you may have guessed from the 14,700 posts on the SI Vault Twitter account, I love old sports photos. The only thing I might like more are old sports commercials. With that in mind, I present Larry Bird pimping Ford Escorts in this magical car advertisement from 1985.
Mavs Get Revenge
DeAndre Jordan returned to Dallas Wednesday night to face the Mavs, the team he agreed to join then dissed at the last minute to stay with the Clippers. Needless to say, Mavs fans came ready to boo. Dallas would go on to win the game (thus earning some lap dances), then sent an amazing trash-talk tweet with emojis to reference the original Jordan drama. Also of note: Mark Cuban has no respect for Chris Broussard, Chandler Parsons has no respect for DeAndre Jordan and Dirk Nowitzki has no respect for teammate Justin Anderson.
Jose Would Be Proud
Not to get all Page Six, but I was happy to see Josie Canseco, daughter of Jose, get some press after being spotted with Justin Bieber. I met Josie a few months ago when she came by the office for an SI Swimsuit Casting and we spent 15 minutes looking at pics of her dad. She couldn't have been cooler. As for Jose, he's still cooling off after his awesome Twitter tirade against Haute Living CEO and publisher Kamal Hotchandani.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Stephen from London wrote in to request Vicky Pattison be named LLOD. I rarely get requests from overseas, and when I do, I treat them seriously. Vicky earns today's honors (click here for full-size gallery).

The Undertaker: Late Night TV Star
If you asked me to list 100 pro wrestlers I'd expect to one day appear on Jimmy Fallon, The Undertaker wouldn't have made the list. But he somehow pulls it off and stays in character the entire time.

Neil Young Turns 70
Neil Young is 70 today and I could spend all day looking for the perfect video to embed. But I have a deadline so I'll go with Powderfinger.
I Beg Your Chardon
Another Classic Larry Bird ad before you go. Because if there's one person you want fashion advice from, it's Larry Bird.
