Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks feature the lovely Denise Schaefer and the Puppy Bowl starting lineups
Meet Team Ruff and Team Fluff
On Feb. 5, 78 puppies from 34 rescue shelters will compete in the Puppy Bowl, and we have photos of the 28 dogs in the starting lineup. At first glance, Daphne looks tough to stop and I wouldn't want to get on Peanut's bad side. But my favorite is three-legged Lucky, who looks determined to win MVP (and find a permanent home).
Russell Westbrook Had an Interesting Night
The Thunder guard got T'd up after accidentally drilling the referee in the head with the ball. I am pretty sure it was an accident after hearing Westbrook's postgame comments. As for the game, Oklahoma City lost to Charlotte 123-112 and Westbrook had some incredible plays that didn't involve throwing a ball at the ref.
