Minka Kelly – Kaley Cuoco Among the Decade’s Best, Random Links
In case you missed it, SI put together an extensive set of lists, photos and other fun stuff to celebrate the end of the decade. Here are some of the highlights:Peter Kinggave away some NFL awards andJoe Posnanskihonored some of the decade’s best in baseball. Jon Heymanalso had a fun baseball piece looking at the decade’s best trades, best/worst free agent acquisitions and more while Ian Thomsen did the same for the NBA. I also enjoyed the signature moments of the decade in college basketball which has a bunch of good videos. If failure is your thing, take a look at the biggest flops of the 2000s (cough, Barry Zito). I couldn’t disagree more withDamon Hack‘s decision to makePhil Jacksonthe coach of the decade overBill Belichick, though I’ll likely name my first son Bill Belichick Gray, so my opinion isn’t exactly neutral. But this is Hot Clicks, so if there’s one piece you must check out it’s the best moments in pop culture including the debut of Friday Night Lights starring the beautifulMinka Kelly(aka – the future Mrs. Jeter).
