Monday's Hot Clicks: Genevieve Morton; Here's Why That Astros Fan Threw Puig's Home Run Ball Back

In Monday's Hot Clicks, we look at that stolen home run ball controversy. Plus a look at the lovely Genevieve Morton.

About that Astros fan who threw the ball back


The most-discussed play from last night's Game 5 occurred in the stands, when an Astros fan caught Yasiel Puig's ninth-inning home run, only to have the guy two seats over steal it and toss it back onto the field. Turns out that guy is her brother-in-law and he's not as evil as the internet is making him out to be.

The best World Series game ever played?

The Astros are one win from the World Series after beating the Dodgers 13-12 in one of the best games ever played. Here's what you missed: Some random guy ran onto the field in not a lot of clothing ... George Springer hit a home run that seemed to explode upon landing ... Yasiel Puig had a clutch one-handed home run ... The Dodgers were down to their last strike before Chris Taylor's single ... Watch Alex Bregman's game-winning hit in the 10th inning ... Nobody had more fun at the game than Joel Embiid.

NFL Round-Up

Read Peter King's MMQB for a full recap of Week 8 ... Player and ​teams that protested the National Anthem ... The Texans would be much better if Bill O'Brien wasn't their coach ... The kicker the Jets cut in training camp aggressively reminded Gang Green of their mistake ... Bills fans continue to have more fun than any other fanbase ...JuJu Smith-Schuster's locked-bike celebration cracked me up ... Batman (or a kid dressed up like him) stormed the field during Jets-Falcons ... Travis Benjamin had one of the worst punt returns in NFL history ... Maybe DeAndre Hopkins should skip practice more often ... The Steelers had another amazing touchdown celebration.

Lovely Lady of the Day

Kevin Spacey update

Actor Anthony Rapp claims that Kevin Spacey made a sexual advance toward him when Rapp was just 14, to which Spacey responded with an apology and declaration that he now chooses to "live life as a gay man." That apology did not go over well and was promptly ripped apart by everyone.
