Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Brittany Churchill; Larry Bird Turns 60

Wednesday December 7th, 2016

Happy 60th, Larry Bird

The great Larry Bird turns 60 today, and to celebrate we dipped into our archives for the gallery below of SI's 60 all-time best Larry Bird photos. My favorite shot is from the 1984 Team USA vs. NBA All Stars and features Bird with a beard. He shaved it off after, and it's never been seen again. (Click here for full-size version.) 

The Biggest Excuse Maker in Sports Makes Another Excuse

Jeff Fisher is at it again. The Rams coach, who just received an extension for reasons nobody seems to understand, was asked about the team's 4-8 record. He initially took the blame before subtly shifting it to some bad draft picks (which fall under the jurisdiction of GM Les Snead). If you're unaware of Fisher's habit of blaming others, then read this immediately.
