Friday’s Hot Clicks: Demi Rose; What got into Sidney Crosby?

Friday June 9th, 2017

What the hell was Crosby thinking?

Sidney Crosby usually tries so hard to maintain his image as a nice guy, but not Thursday night. It started in the first period, when he repeatedly slammed P.K. Subban’s head into the ice. (P.K. had him in perfect position to deliver a DDT but was able to restrain himself.)

Then, in the third, Sid threw a water bottle on the ice in the middle of play. 

A rare sight

Thursday's Giants-Brewers game featured an endangered species: the semi-nude streaker. It’s heartwarming to see streaking get back to its roots. 

Blllleeeecchhhh

The photo in this story about a rancid Uber Eats order made me wretch so hard. 

Lovely Lady of the Day

Shoutout to noted world observer Andy Gray for deciding to feature British model Demi Rose the morning after the UK general election. (Click here for the full-size gallery.)

These are going to sell like hotcakes

It always surprised me how popular Hartford Whalers merchandise was when I was growing up in Connecticut, especially since the part of the state I’m from is just as close to Manhattan as it is to Hartford. So I can tell you right now, the new Whalers license plates Connecticut is introducing are going to be super popular. 

Will these shoes make you run a sub-two-hour marathon?

Probably not—but they were designed to. The ZoomFly is one of Nike's Breaking2 shoes, with the same construction, look and feel as the pros used in Nike's attempt to break the record, with Lunarlon foam and carbon-injected nylon plate construction. These are built for speed.​ Check out the whole collection of Nike's new lightweight running shoes here.

Speaking of the U.K. election

He got 249 votes, while Elmo only got three. 

What magical powers does it hold?

Odds & Ends

I’m always curious to read about what the new iOS actually does. ... Brandon Marshall’s ongoing feud with the Jets is a delight. ... After being rebuffed by three candidates, Ohio State has targeted a new head coach. ... This  map of every state’s highway sign is pretty cool. ... Cal is adding a line in the turf at its football stadium to represent the seismic fault that runs under the field. ... The story of the Uber driver who took that Bills player from Chicago to Buffalo just keeps getting better

The Cavs should feel lucky this went out of style

I love Norm Macdonald

A good song
