In Tuesday's Hot Clicks, we look at Steven Adams' much-delayed prom date.
Better late than never
Thunder center Steven Adams is one of the more likable players in the NBA—whether posing for a mock fashion shoot or debating whether cake is bread—so it only makes sense that a law school student wanted him as her prom date (they have those in law school, apparently). The good news is Adams said yes (as long as she gets 1,000 retweets). The bad news is Adams responded last night, three years and 23 days after the request was made. The girl is now a lawyer and hoping the invitation extends to her firm's Christmas party in December.

History of wardrobe malfunctions in figure skating and ice dancing
French ice dancer Gabriella Papadakis isn't the first, and won't be the last. Slate has a good piece looking at the "long, mortifying history of wardrobe malfunctions" in figure skating and ice dancing.
George Washington's hair found in very old book
A librarian at Union College stumbled upon a pretty cool piece of history while cataloging old books. I actually went to Union College for my freshman year. From what I remember, it was a fun place.
