Tuesday’s Hot Clicks: Bre Tisei; Competitive hobbyhorsing is a sport and it’s awesome
Yup, this is an actual thing, though mostly in Finland. There are actual competitions with judges. The participants, mostly kids between 12-15, “feed” their horses daily and give them names, personalities and backstories. I'm not sure what else to add other than it's bizarre, awesome and you must watch this video.
The Pirates have called up relief pitcher Dovydas Neverauskas, making him the first player in MLB history born and raised in Lithuania. Of course, he has a ways to go before dethroning my current favorite Lithuainian athlete.
My pal Chris Applebaum emailed to let me know he pushed out another video from his EATS series, this one featuring Bre Tiesi. You may know her as the future Mrs. Johnny Manziel. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).
Way back in the early days of Hot Clicks (2008 or so), there were two LLODs everyone requested: Erin Andrews and Allison Stokke. One hosts Dancing with the Stars and the other just about disappeared … until yesterday when she appeared on Ricky Fowler's arm.
* That's a lie. I shill for SI all the time.
Big news. William Murray Golf, the new lifestyle and apparel brand created by Bill Murray and his brothers, launched its spring collection. It consists of new polos, golf buttoned downs, shorts and hats in various styles and colors inspired by the Murray brothers, including this awesome floral-printed polo. The line will be sold exclusively online at www.williammurraygolf.com. As luck would have it, I have three polos to give away and I'll send them to the 100th, 200th and 300th person to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the reporter Pete Rose verbally sparred with back in 1999. The answer is in this collection of athlete-reporter confrontations. Please make the subject line “William Murray Golf.”
