Monday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Vita Sidorkina; Oral History of Charles Barkley-Dick Bavetta Race

Monday's P.M. Clicks features a look at the Charles Barkley-Dick Bavetta Foot Race and much more.

Oral history of Barkley-Bavetta foot race


Ten years ago, two men raced. One was a retired athlete, 30 pounds past his prime but unable to let go of his competitive edge. The other was a 67-year-old referee, nearing retirement but not ready to hang his whistle just yet. How'd this happen? Who won? Complex's Spencer Lund has the oral history of that time Charles Barkley raced Dick Bavetta.

The next great one

Paulina Gretzky announced she is pregnant and expecting her second child with golfer Dustin Johnson. And since I got four emails requesting Paulina Gretzky photos, here you go.

Studio host mock draft

My good pals Richard Deitsch, Jimmy Traina and John Ourand had a mock draft of the 30 top studio hosts in sports today. James Brown deserved better.

Lovely lady of the day
