Thursday P.M. Hot Clicks: Daisy Ridley, Happy Birthday, Yogi & Homer

Thursday May 12th, 2016

Happy Birthday, Yogi

We lost Yogi Berra last year, but today would have been the Yankees legend’s 91st birthday. Celebrate the Hall of Fame catcher’s greatness, both on and off the field, with this classic cat food commercial. Personally I prefer his later work with Yao Ming.

NHL Round-up

The Stanley Cup Conference Finals are almost set with the Predators and Sharks squaring off Thursday night in a Game 7 for the final spot. The Blues dispatched the Stars Wednesday night. The Capitals playoff failure drove one sportscaster to chug a drink on air. Jimmy Fallon got in the Stanley Cup spirit by sharing some NHL superlatives.

Live Like a Turtle

Carmelo Anthony’s favorite crime fighters, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, have a new movie coming out, and to promote it they have placed the TNMT lair up on Airbnb. Even if you are not a TMNT fan, $10 a night for a three-bedroom place in Tribeca with a basketball court is a hell of a deal.

P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Thursday afternoon’s Lovely Lady is Daisy Ridley, who came out on top of this year’s’s “Crush List” and starred in the recent Star Wars film. (Click here for full-sized gallery.)

Hey, It's That Guy!

There are so many MLB players that even true fanatics let players slip through the cracks. Sports Illustrated’s Dan Gartland has brought some of the lost players of the '90s and early 2000s back to mind with this wonderful quiz.

Shock and Awe by Kobe Bryant

Gordon Hayward said the Jazz were "in shock" as Kobe Bryant unloaded on them in his final game last month.

Some Clichés are True

Happy Birthday, Homer!

Odds & Ends

Justin Timberlake & The Weeknd got together for a falsetto filled duet ... Stephen Curry sold more jerseys than anyone else, which is not surprising ... The NFL will continue to use YouTube ... It seems Russia used PEDs to increase their home medal count at the Sochi Olympics ... Go inside a NYC cult called the Superstar Machine ... Gallery: The Day In Sports (May 12).
