In Tuesday's Hot Clicks, we look at Dirk Nowitzki reaching a career milestone.
Nowitkzi Nowitzki hits a milestone
Congrats to Mavs legend Dirk Nowitzki, who has now played over 50,000 minutes of NBA basketball. But that's not all! He also became the latest member of the "Misspelled Jersey Club", joining the likes of Wayne Gretzky, Troy Tulowitzki and the Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team. But seriously, this is a great achievement, and if you haven't read Chris Ballard's excellent profile of Nowitzki, do so now.
Leftover Super Bowl items
Cris Collinsworth had a horrible game behind the mike ... Rob Gronkowski's house was burglarized during the Super Bowl ... A bunch of Eagles fans accidentally visited one of Minnesota's top gay bars ... Ranking every Super Bowl Halftime Show (Justin Timberlake didn't do so well) ... Speaking of, JT was definitely using a Prince hologram until Twitter told him otherwise ... Gisele used the loss as a teaching moment for her kids ... Antonio Brown offered Tom Brady some offseason receiving lessons ... This 87-year-old waited nearly 40 years to drink his celebratory champagne ... Gisele posted a nice message of congratulations to the Eagles after the game ... Safe to say not everyone believed in Nick Foles.
