We say goodbye to a Hot Clicks legend with a toast on National Beer Day. Plus, the biggest Wrestlemania preview you've ever seen and LLOD Britt Churchill.
Andy Gray, of Hot Clicks, Swimsuit and Vault lore, bid adieu to Sports Illustrated on Friday after a 13-year run. You all owe him a big hug. It was a pleasure Andy and best of luck on your next adventure.
National Beer Day
Saturday is National Beer Day, a holiday that dates back nearly 100 years. Here’s how to talk beer like a pro so you don’t sound like an idiot before you’re drunk. ICYMI: Jason Day hit a shot into a fan’s beer cup at Augusta, and this Giants fan’s foul ball whiff led to a massive beer explosion.
A bus crash involving a junior hockey team in Canada resulted in 14 deaths and more than a dozen injuries.
SI’s Justin Barrasso wrote the biggest WrestleMania preview you’ve ever seen. Seriously, it’s almost 10,000 words. And here’s a defense of the fans at the post-WrestleMania Raw that bring the heat each year.
Lovely Lady of the Day

UMBC can’t stop, wont stop
On Friday, the UMBC men’s lacrosse team beat top-ranked Albany, which was riding a 31-game winning streak.
Slapped with a fine
The new East Tennessee State football coach was docked one week’s pay for slapping a player’s helmet during practice.
