In Thursday's Hot Clicks, we mock Diddy's plan to buy the NFL, plus a look at the lovely Shelbi Buchholz.
Stay in your lane, Diddy
If you can't beat them, buy them. That seems to be
Sean Combs Puffy P. Diddy Diddy's philosophy in response to the NFL's National Anthem controversy. The rapper suggested as much in a series of tweets on Wednesday. Only one problem: His net worth is $800 million and the NFL's least expensive team (Buffalo Bills) is valued at $1.6 billion. So yeah, kind of a weird way to make yourself part of the story. As expected, Twitter mocked him for this.
I love Danny Ainge so much
Lee Jenkins has a profile on Isaiah Thomas that's a must-read for NBA fans. Thomas goes into detail about being traded from Boston to Cleveland and how hurt he was when Danny Ainge traded him. Ainge responded with the classic "that's the toughest part of the job" line and that's more than okay with me (a huge Celtics fan). I'd rather have a GM care about winning more than hurt feelings and I'm predicting a MVP season for Kyrie Irving. You heard it here first (just don't tell @oldtakesexposed).
Cowboys fans have a new least favorite beer, courtesy of a trolling Eagles fan/beer brewer.

Five biggest heartbreaks in recent USMNT history
Feeling depressed about Tuesday's loss to Trinidad and Tobago. Here are five more heartbreaking losses to make you even more depressed. Unless you're Jack Warner, of course, who hates U.S. soccer with an undying passion.
Ben Roethlisberger is confused
On Sunday, he confessed that he "might not have it anymore." Yesterday, he got mad at reporters for questioning whether or not he still has it. So is he washed up? SI's Andy Benoit studied the film and has an answer.
Hot Clicks Giveaway
I do a lot of giveaways in Hot Clicks and I think this one might be my favorite. The good people at Shinesty make NFL and NCAA blazers and they are just phenomenal. I wish I could give everyone reading this a blazer because I want you all to own one. Of course, you can go to their website and purchase one, or take your chances in today's giveaway. I'll send a blazer (you pick the team and size) to the 100th, 200th and 300th person to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the world's most expensive golf club. The answer was in yesterday's Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line "Shinesty."
