Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks: Kelly Thomas; Lamest Sports Moment of 2016

Thursday December 29th, 2016

Lamest Sports Moment of 2016?

About half my co-workers went to Northwestern so they're going hate me for saying this, but the Rockettes leg-kick thing the team's players did on the sideline Wednesday was really, really lame. I feel like someone on the team suggested it and everyone else knew it was a bad idea but nobody wanted to say so. Sure, the team won and I love Coach Pat Fitzgerald calling out Danny Kanell after the game, but that dance routine was just no bueno. What do you think? 

Sign of the Times

It's going to be 2017 in a couple days and I hope 2018 brings on more sports team Twitter battles. The latest, featuring the Sacramento Kings misspelling the other Western Conference All-Star nominees to get DeMarcus Cousins more love, was thoroughly enjoyable. 

Curse of Man Boobs

How good would the Rockets be right now if they had Marc Gasol? We'll never know because of his 2007 man boobs.
