Monday’s A.M. Hot Clicks: Sarah McDaniel; Spectacular onside kick fail
Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce became one of my favorite NFL players when he threw his towel in disgust at a ref (the ref responded by throwing him out of the game) ... The Steelers attempted a cool onside kick but failed miserably ... Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford completed a pass to himself during Minnesota's overtime loss to the Lions ... The Packers need to sign this squirrel to play receiver, immediately ... The Raiders have the coolest punter in the league ... Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake blew chunks after a game-winning kick return for a touchdown against the Jets ... Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles can’t even warm up right.
Cubs Victory Lap
Cubs fans and the players themselves are still basking in the team’s first World Series win since 1908. A Chicago couple got engaged while holding the World Series trophy ... A bunch of Cubbies hit the Blackhawks game Sunday night, where they were welcomed as heroes. And in case you missed it, three Cubs (alongside Bill Murray!) sang “Go Cubs Go” on Saturday Night Live.
