LAST WEEK MATT BARNES posted a video of his Clippers teammates belting out an a capella version of Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer." It was an odd choice for L.A., which is in second place in the Pacific Division, but a look at the 2014 music charts reveals a few songs that are better matches for particular squads. Here are the tunes and who should sing them.
Wrecking Ball/Miley Cyrus
Dark Horse/Katy Perry
Ohio State/Cardale Jones
Am I Wrong/Nico & Vinz
SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE
The Astros tweeted an offer to give away a Jose Altuve--signed ball if they got 1,000 retweets in 70 minutes. They got 545 from their 186,000 followers then gave up.
