Tuesday's Hot Clicks: Lexie Elston; Half-naked skiers attempt world record

Tuesday April 4th, 2017

Half-naked skiers set world record

Three years ago, Sochi was the center of the sports world when it hosted the Winter Olympics. Now it's the host city of the annual ‘BoogleWoogel’ festival, where hundreds of half-naked skiers tried to set a new Guinness World Record for the “largest swimwear parade on skis." And they said Sochi would turn to a wasteland post-Olympics!

Tar Heels win and more from the National Championship

North Carolina is the national champion, and if you can only read one game story, make it this one. Also worth checking out: Michael Phelps and Adam Morrison finally left the tanning bed to attend the game ... The UNC student section had a bunch of fake fans (definitely not this girl, though) ... The worst seat in the house cost someone $115 ... The refs were terrible and Twitter let everyone know about it ... Gonzaga was sad after the loss ... Johnny Manziel isn't a fan of the NCAA either ... Franklin Street in Chapel Hill was the place to be after the game ... It's not too early for an extensive look at next year's Top 25, right?

Did you read Jimmy's debut column?

As we discussed, Jimmy Traina made his long-awaited return to SI and debuted a new column called Traina Thoughts (get it?). This will replace P.M. Clicks going forward. Make it part of your daily routine.

Dog interrupts makes soccer game a hundred times better

Odds & ends

This agent accidentally revealed the Magic’s list of off-season targets while trying to take a photo of his client ... NHL players won't be participating in the 2018 Olympics and fans had a lot to say about that decision ... Georgetown's hiring of Patrick Ewing is a fascinating gamble ... Pet plastic surgery is for people with way too much money ... The less I say about this one, the better ... This is a good deal if you like baseball and are a T-Mobile customer ... Go to Ben and Jerry's today for a free ice cream cone.
