Thursday's Hot Clicks: Gabriela Salles; 105-year-old rides roller coaster, sets world record

Thursday April 6th, 2017

105-Year-Old man rides roller coaster

I was going to lead Hot Clicks with Ian Kahaloa but that story is depressing so I'm moving to Plan B, Jack Reynolds. The 105-year-old set a Guinness World Record by attempting to be the oldest person to ride a roller coaster, and raised money for his local air ambulance while doing so. This is his second world record. The first was being the oldest man to get a tattoo.

Baseball's dumbest player

I know that headline is harsh but don't know how else to describe Ian KahaloaThe Reds prospect posted a Snapchat video of himself snorting a line of coke and another video of some pot and a bong with caption, "wake and bake." Yesterday he was suspended 50 games for a positive drug test.

NYPD pays Thabo Sefolosha

Remember a couple Aprils ago when Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha got his leg broken by NYPD after a skirmish at a night club? It ended Sefolosha's season and put a big dent in Atlanta's roster heading into the playoffs. The case has been settled and Thabo got paid!

Traina Thoughts

Quick reminder: P.M. Clicks is gone and in its place is Traina Thoughts, a new daily column by our good pal Jimmy Traina. Here's yesterday's column, featuring a Q&A with Noah Syndergaard, a clip of Mike Francesa freaking out and the best tweets on Kendall Jenner's disastrous Pepsi ad.

Time to get away?

It’s time to start planning your Easter and Memorial Day getaways. Luckily, Hilton is having a sale where you can save up to 20% off on weekend stays during those holiday weekends in places like West Palm BeachDallasSan Francisco and more. I’m pretty sure sales during holidays never happen, so take advantage of this now. The deal ends Friday.

James Dolan celebrated Tuesday's Knicks loss by cursing at an angry fan outside MSG ... Dustin Johnson won the "dumb injury of the week" contest ... Here's a bust of Steve Smith made from lint. I don't know why either ... The Toronto Raptors were part of final Jeopardy last night ... Of course Madonna had to weigh in on the Kendall Jenner/Pepsi controversy ... Warning to all Secret Service members reading Hot Clicks: Stay away from prostitutes ... Alec Baldwin had a big Twitter fight and it had nothing to do with Donald Trump.
