In Wednesday's Hot Clicks, the Yankees are easy to like. Plus a look at the lovely Michelle Pieroway.
The Yankees are likeable and I can't believe I just typed that
I've always hated the Yankees. When I first moved to NYC in 2004, I used to tell everyone that my favorite baseball team was whoever the Yanks were playing that night. I've maintained this hatred most of my life, but I think it's time to get over it. Because, as much as it pains me to say it, the Yankees are fun. Take last night's play-in game. They added a fun new wrinkle to the fake press conference celebration. Aaron Judge hit another bomb. David Robertson had an amazing reaction to Gary Sanchez's pain. So yeah, the Yankees are likeable.
Amazing anti-Knicks ad to be taken down. Boooooooo.
I know those Fox Sports 1 subway ads taking shots at the Knicks ineptitude were too good to be true. I was right. After a livid James Dolan called Rupert Murdoch, the ads will be removed, and the NYC subway can go back to being the miserable hell that it is.
Alex Morgan booted from DisneyWorld

Lovely Lady of the Day
It's been over a year since we featured Michelle Pieroway as LLOD and seeing that she just launched her own swimsuit brand (Whipped Cream Swimwear), she deserves to be featured again. Michelle is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
The World Cup is heading to Russia next year, and the folks who run The Ekaterinburg Arena are doing all they can to make sure their stadium reaches the 35,000 capacity rule. And if that means adding temporary stands that aren't really part of the arena, so be it. I just hope it doesn't rain.
