Remembering MJ's Flu Game
I mentioned in A.M. Hot Clicks that the sneakers Michael Jordan wore during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals (The Flu Game) sold for $104,000 at auction. I searched through the archives and found some great photos from the game itself. For those who don't recall, the series was tied 2-2 and a flu-ridden Jordan scored 38 points to go with seven rebounds and five assists in Chicago's 90-88 victory at Utah. The Bulls would go onto win the title in Game 6.

Bert Blyleven > John Henson
Bucks big man John Henson made a strong statement against the NCAA with this t-shirt. Call me crazy but I prefer the good old days when athletes such as Bert Blyleven wore simple t-shirts without any political message.
Lovely Lady Of The Day, Throwback Edition
Based on the success of Heather Locklear's Throwback LLOD last month, I decided to use Thursday's P.M. Clicks as an opportunity to showcase a lovely lady from yesteryear. My first choice is Nicole Eggert, who not only stole the show in Charles in Charge and Baywatch, but also starred in the criminally underrated Blown Away.
Seahawks Fans vs. 49ers Fans
Last week, Seattle fans raised $1,800 to have a "Go Hawks" banner fly over Candlestick Park Sunday's Seahawks-49ers game. To get revenge, a group of San Francisco fans have pledged nearly $8,000 to erect a pro-49ers billboard within a half-mile of Century Link Field. Better yet, the billboard only costs $7,000 so all additional funds will be given to charity.

I searched for a good Nicole Eggert video to end today's Hot Clicks with and found this Baywatch gem featuring Elizabeth Berkley (a.k.a. - Jessie Spano from Saved by the Bell).
