Friday Hot Clicks: Merry Christmas! Miranda Kerr; NBA; Charles Woodson
Here is your complete viewing guide for a fantastic NBA-filled Christmas Day, one that includes Kobe Bryant, who was given this nasty mixtape in honor of his 16th Christmas Day game. Pacers' guard Glenn Robinson III surprised his mom with a gorgeous Mercedes for Christmas and here's a reminder how incredible the NBA jerseys are today. Also, here are the 10 best Christmas games since 2000 and apparently the Chicago Bulls are trying to trade Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah.

Charles Woodson played his final NFL home game on Thursday night, a 23-20 overtime victory for Oakland over San Diego. The Raiders honored the future Hall of Famer with a special trick play in what might have been their final home game in Oakland. Woodson gave a phenomenal and emotional pregame speech and also addressed the fans following the victory. And his postgame press conference was interrupted by his son, who had a very important message.
Canadiens star P.K. Subban partnered with Air Canada to create a Winder Wonderland at the Montreal Children's Hospital. Kids were surprised with Christmas cookies, presents and tons of other items in this very emotional video.

Remember the story on Gophers' punter Peter Mortell trying to raise $25,000 to buy presents for children at the University of Minnesota Mason Children's Hospital? He nailed it. Such an awesome story.
New Level of Insanity
We've seen insane Christmas lights displays but this Seahawks fan goes to a whole new level and is now undisputed champ of light displays. The fan raised $30,000 on GoFundMe to create the 175,000-light display that took 400 hours.
