Speaking Of WAGs...

The Caltech's basketball team ended a 310-game conference losing streak yesterday.

Cavaliers Had Nothing On These Guys

Bryan, of Las Vegas, Nevada, says, "Jimmy, tonight I was in a sportsbook and saw some of the results from today's horse races which included these from Northfield Park in Ohio. If you go to the winner of the 12th race, you get a great name for a horse."

Thank you. Dunks are boring." I don't know if I'll be that strict, but it will take a big effort to get a dunk featured in Hot Clicks. In fact, it will have to be something like this.
