In Friday's Hot Clicks, an Auburn diehard stirs up an ethical debate on painting one's pets, and a feature on the Lovely Jazmin Schmerber.
Thoughts on this guy painting his dog in Auburn colors?
Meet Ron Samford and his blue and orange-colored maltese, Tiger Jake. Samford is an enormous Auburn fan and takes Tiger Jake to gets his colors done every eight weeks. He insists it's done “under the supervision of the dog’s groomer and veterinarians.” Despite that, it still feels really wrong to me. I couldn't imagine doing this to my dog. But Jake seems really happy, and Samford seems like a good dog owner so I'm not sure what to think. What say you?
Maybe Tim Tebow isn't so bad at baseball
Was everyone wrong about Tim Tebow? The former Heisman Trophy winner hit a walk-off home run to give the St. Lucie Mets a 5–4 victory over the Daytona Tortugas. Yes, the same Daytona Tortugas that are hosting Bob Ross Night this weekend. As for Tebow, he's on an 11-game hitting streak and is batting .327 since joining St. Lucie.
