Weekend Hot Clicks: Athletes pay tribute to Paris attack victims

Saturday November 14th, 2015


Numerous sports figures kept the Paris attack victims and their families in their hearts through social media posts and in-game tributes, including LeBron James, Thierry Henry and Caroline Wozniacki. Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones was one of many college football players that honored those affected by drawing the #Prayers4Paris symbol on his cleats and Army took the field carrying both the American and French flag before playing Tulane. In hockey, the Washington Capitals played the Star-Spangled Banner before their game against the Flames on Friday but they projected the French flag onto the ice.

The Rousey Factor

Former opponents explained what it feels like to face Ronda Rousey and one said fights "terrified". Rousey and her next victim, Holly Holm, threw a couple punches (more like shoves) at Friday's weigh-in for UFC 193. And then the undisputed champ called out Holm on Instagram. Oh, and Rousey also threatened to beat up Kim Kardashian.

Fallout from Fallout

The new Fallout 4 video game lets you be David Ortiz and smash mutants with a nail-loaded bat. However, the MLB is not thrilled about his inclusion, calling it a rights infringement.
