Weekend Hot Clicks: Trail Blazers cheerleader Natalie; NBA playoff madness
Playoff Madness & Sadness
The Wizards haven't been to the conference finals since 'Nam but John Wall got them one step closer on Friday night by forcing a Game 7. Is John Wall vs. Isaiah Thomas turning into a legit, must-watch rivalry? And Ben Golliver wonders if Warriors-Spurs will save a mostly uneventful playoffs. In hockey, the Predators magical playoff run continued with a thrilling overtime win over the Ducks in their series-opening game on Friday, though Ryan Getzlaf still rolls into work like a boss. Lastly, should the Capitals actually trade Alex Ovechkin?
Moms are the best
Andy posted this video on Friday but it's worthy of revisiting: Watch ECU head coach Scottie Montgomery inform a walk-on's mom that her son will get a full scholarship. This mom raised FOUR sons to be CEOs. And instead of mugs, massages and pedicures, take your mom on one of these trips for Mother's Day.
Big moment for cookie connoisseurs
Oreo is offering $500,000 to the person who comes up with their newest flavor. You'd think it wouldn't be that hard, right? There's a Wikipedia page for Oreo varieties and, if it's accurate, I don't know how you could suggest something edible that hasn't been done.
Lovely Lady of the Day
The Blazers got eliminated but that won't stop us from honoring one of their cheerleaders, Natalie, as our Weekend LLOD (Click here for full-sized gallery)
