In Wednesday's Hot Clicks, we look at the phenomenon that is professional tag. Plus a look at the lovely Krystle Lina.
Professional tag is the next great sport
The first sport everyone learns to play is tag. You chase your friend. They chase you. Then you go inside and watch cartoons. The people at World Chase Tag have different ideas and see tag as the next great sport. I’m not sure how popular it’ll get, but I’d definitely check it out if it was on ESPN The Ocho.
ESPN didn’t totally think this one through
I'm sure someone at ESPN meant well with the idea to televise a fantasy football auction draft on air. But in reality, it did not go so well. The sight of black players being sold to mostly white male bidders angered just about everyone including Odell Beckham and Kevin Durant. ESPN later issued an apology.

Tiger Woods’s is the biggest, but I like Lee Westwood's the most.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Tuesday’s LLOD, Heidi Cortez must’ve been popular because I received four emails praising her. What you did not know is that many of those photos were taken by fellow model Krystle Lina, who’s also a photographer. Krystle earns MVP honors for the week and is today’s LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
Derek Carr is either being really funny or really cheesy with his new music video
I’m going funny. There’s no way he’s serious. Or at least I hope that’s the case.
NBA face merges are bizarre and fun
Not sure what motivated someone to start an Instagram account that features two NBA players faces getting merged into one, but it’s my new favorite Instagram page.

Mark your calendar. On Nov. 17, the movie WONDER hits theaters. The movie, based on the New York Times bestseller and starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Trembley, tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. To promote the film, I have five prize packs of the book and t-shirt to give away. I'll send to the 50th, 100th, 150th, 200th and 250th person who emails me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of Blake Griffin’s latest love interest. The answer was in yesterday’s Clicks. Please make the subject line “WONDER.”
