Thursday's Hot Clicks: Priscilla Ricart; Shane McMahon cheats death
Nothing can kill Shane McMahon
It’s been like 18 hours since Shane McMahon’s helicopter crash-landed into the Atlantic Ocean and I still can’t believe this story. Luckily, we’ve even got a few new developments in the story. Here’s the full video of the rescue shot from an NYPD helicopter and some photos from the scene. Probably my favorite part was how not a single WWE fan was shocked that the guy famous for diving off the top of cages was uninjured in the crash.
Kung Fu Panda fights again
Pablo Sandoval looked done as a major leaguer after getting DFA’d by the Red Sox, but I guess if there’s one team that would pick him up, it’s the Giants.
This is an underrated NBA summer storyline
The folks at NBA 2K have been teasing out player ratings this week by announcing them to players on camera. Karl Anthony Towns’s reaction might be my favorite yet.

Odds & Ends
Keith Hernandez and I have something in common—we both got our braces stuck to our lip while playing basketball. ...

Ed Sheeran deleted his Twitter account right after his much-maligned Game of Thrones cameo, but he insists the two aren’t related. ... Bad news: J.D. Martinez got hurt in just his second at-bat with the D-Backs. Good news: It’s just a bruise. ... Few things make me happier than seeing dumb startups crash and burn. ... Dez Bryant is having a barbecue and everyone is invited.
Shane McMahon’s wasn’t the only aircraft emergency on Long Island yesterday
This dude makes me seethe
I can’t believe Andy didn't link to this yesterday. You may have already seen it but if you haven’t, please watch it. This guy is beyond insufferable. (Then read this profile of his less famous, perhaps slightly less awful brother.)
A good song
