Your Early Home Run Leader
Bryce Harper may have gone totally hipster with his hair, but the Nats slugger started the season strong, hitting two home runs in his first two at bats in a 2-0 win over the Marlins.

Our Commander In Bricks
At the annual White House Easter Egg Hunt, President Barack Obama shot hoops with some children and a few members of the Washington Wizards. Unfortunately, his shots weren’t falling and Obama called it quits after going just 2 of 22 (including a painful missed layup at the 1:50 mark of the ABC video).

Old School Video Of The Day
In today’s A.M. Hot Clicks, we showed you Pistons forward Andre Drummond airball a pair of free throws. Well, Friday was ’90s night and I thought I should give him a shot at redemption by posting this video. It was solid up until Drummond posed for a creepy Titanic nude painting.
