In Friday's Hot Clicks, we declare Keith Hernandez alive and well, plus a look at the lovely Meghan Mazurczyk.
Keith Hernandez is not dead
I had two seconds of incredible sadness yesterday when I read that Keith Hernandez was dead. Turns out the headline in yesterday's Brandon Sun accidentally used "Keith" instead of "Aaron" in the headline. I thought maybe Keith's years of smoking finally caught up to him. Nonetheless, I am happy to announce that Keith Hernandez is alive, well and still dating everyone's favorite Northwestern mom.
The NFL schedule is out
Somehow, the NFL turned a schedule release into a major sporting event. Here's Peter King on how the 2017 schedule was made, along with a look at this year's must-watch games, a ranking of teams with the hardest schedule and the 10 worst games of 2017 that you'll probably still watch.

Lovely Lady of the Day
Meghan Mazurczyk has appeared in a bunch of random stuff (The Dictator, Happyish), including the series finale of 30 Rock. Those are impressive credentials. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
Jimmy Traina is back at SI and has a daily column called Traina Thoughts, which is published in the early afternoon every day. Thursday, he discussed bad umpires, Charles Barkley's assault on critics and the Carmelo-LaLa split. He also did a quick Q&A during a train delay, so if you're curious about the best Curb and Seinfeld episodes, or a Friday Night Lights spin-off, give it a read.
Weed nuns are my favorite nuns
Yesterday was 4/20 and as expected, there was a lot of internet content about pot. Hell, we even busted out this Ricky Williams' best SI portraits gallery for the occasion. But of everything I read, my favorite was this profile of "Weed Nuns," who are "holy rollers on a mission to empower women with marijuana products."
