This weekend's Hot Clicks features Patrick Reed's US Open melt down and O.J. Simpson... joining Twitter?
O.J. Gets Even?
"Coming soon to Twitter, you’ll get to read all my thoughts and opinions on just about everything." I wake up each morning hoping it’s the day that O.J. Simpson joins Twitter. I need his thoughts and opinions on just about everything. My prayers were answered this weekend, and I’m grateful that O.J. finally has a forum to "get even."
When in doubt, it’s the club’s fault. Patrick Reed didn’t enjoy himself at Pebble Beach on Friday. He stayed above the cut line buy only by one stroke after shooting three-over over the final five holes, bogeying the par-5 14th and double-bogeying the par-5 18th. The latter included a chunk, which led to a snapped club. Arguably the best part: His caddie Kessler Karin’s calm reaction. And let’s stop the Bo Jackson comparisons. Bo could’ve snapped that club with his fingers. Reed couldn’t snap a baseball bat with a chainsaw.

We don’t deserve these
Today in 1974, Nolan Ryan throws 235 pitches while walking 10 batters and striking out 19 over 13 innings. He was immediately scheduled for season-ending elbow surgery. Just kidding, he made his next start on three days rest and won. pic.twitter.com/usZ8aXb9AJ— Super 70s Sports (@Super70sSports) June 14, 2019
I’m still mad about McCaffrey’s snub
