Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks
How pumped up were Pirates fans for their first postseason game in 21 years? Well, they were able to rattle Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto with a serenade of his name right before he gave up a home run to catcher Russell Martin. The night's events (and I assume booze) were too much for one fan to handle. He celebrated the win by jumping off the Clemente Bridge into the Allegheny River.
Specifically, Texans fans have a problem with quarterback Matt Schaub. One local restaurant is offering the "Pick Six" burger in Schaub's honor. The heat has also driven the signal-caller to delete his Twitter account.
Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones received a Pacman cake for his birthday yesterday, and it was awesome.
Lacey Chabert has a must-see photoshoot in the new Maxim. ... As a rule, we always link to new photos of Hot Clicks favorite Nikki Leigh. ... Kate Upton joins B.J. and Justin Upton on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.
Niners safety Donte Whitner was fined for a questionable hit in last Thursday's game against the Rams, so he's turning to the fans for help in paying his bill by selling a creative T-shirt.
The New York Daily News reports today that Alex Rodriguez's defense for taking PEDs is that he didn't know he was taking PEDs an was tricked. Now, the Daily News has some very questionable credibility when it comes to their Alex Rodriguez reporting because they dislike the guy more than me and have been wrong about numerous things. However, one of my Twitter followers noticed something interesting about the photos in the Daily News story.
Yes, all of the signs held up by A-Rod supporters at his hearing yesterday had the same exact handwriting. Coincidence? Who knows.
I recently did an interview with Rays pitcher David Price, who provided several laughs when talking about how he injured himself toweling off, why he'd block his mom on Twitter, how rookie hazing caused an injury and more.
Via Yahoo comes the wildest two-point conversion you'll ever see.
It's always amusing when the banter goes bad. (Thanks to Hogan H., of Birmingham, Ala., for the video.)
In yesterday's A.M. Hot Clicks, I linked to this amazing, surreal and unbelievable parody of New York sports-talk host Mike Francesa. Late in his show yesterday, the Sports Pope said he had not seen it because he "doesn't watch YouTube." So, today, I'm going to embed the video here just in case someone at WFAN reads Hot Clicks and Mike can see it as he walks by their desk.
