Wednesday's Hot Clicks: Sarah Maria Paul; Kardashian puts squeeze on Tristan Thompson

Wednesday April 12th, 2017

Mind games

I try and keep Hot Clicks a mostly Kardashian-free zone but I am in awe of the mind games Khloe is playing with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. She recently told The Evening Standard that she would say yes if he proposes to her. What the hell is that? Now he basically has to propose or get tagged with the dreaded "he can't commit" label. That family is so manipulative. Tristan, if you're reading, just cut your losses and move on.

Your thoughts on Tony Romo's appearance with the Mavs

I was never a big Tony Romo fan and don't quite understand why he got his own Make-a-Wish Night in Dallas, but here's what you missed. He showed off his basketball skills with this sweet move during pregame warmups, got introduced with the starting lineup and jokingly tried to enter the game late in the fourth. I'm not usually a grumpy old man here but it all seemed very unnecessary and self-indulgent. What did you think?

Duke is so lame

Duke sent a cease-and-desist letter to Smack Apparel, which has been making t-shirts about Grayson Allen tripping opponents. The shirt is pretty great, too.
