After the Magic and Bulls played last month, Orlando's Jameer Nelson told fellow guard Derrick Rose, "catch you in the second round." The only problem with that, of course, was that the Magic lost to the Hawks in the opening round. But Atlanta's public relations department did not want to disappoint Nelson, so they left him two tickets to last night's Hawks-Bulls game, which Atlanta won, 103-95. (Thanks to Kyle, of Baltimore, and Jeff, of Miami, for the tip.)
Booooooooo!More and more, if something in sports is fun and a hit with fans, the people in charge will try to screw it up. The latest example comes from the NHL. Puck Daddy informs us that the league has told the Vancouver Canucks "Green Men" (who were featured in Hot Clicks last week) that "they're no longer allowed to touch the penalty box glass or perform handstands to distract the visiting team's players."
