I Want Your Superfan Photos

Each week, our photographers send us their best shots from the crowd for our Superfans gallery. I think you, the dedicated readers of Hot Clicks, can do better. Please email me (andy_gray@simail.com) your best fan photos (NFL, college football or any sport) and I'll see how they compare to the professionals. I'll even send a 2014 SI Swimsuit DVD to the person who sends in the best photo.

In the meantime, I did some investigating on the above photo and the girl on the right (you can see her better in the second photo) claims to be the linebacker's girlfriend. But No. 30 on Boston College is kicker Joey Launceford, so her shirt makes no sense. Is she lying? Did she randomly choose No. 30? The Hot Clicks Investigative News Team has hit a wall. Can someone from BC please email me and explain. 

Update (7:58 p.m.): There are two No. 30s on BC, one of which is the boyfriend. On a sidenote, there shouldn't be doubling up of numbers in any sport. A college football team doesn't need 99 players.

NBA Court Design Power Rankings

Grantland's Zach Lowe has ranked the court design of all 30 NBA teams and the top three are the Lakers (No. 1), the Celtics (No. 2) and the Hornets (No. 3). I am a big fan of Zach, but think he scored the Raptors (No. 10) too low and the Nets (No. 3) too high. 

Buffet with the Browns O-Line

In perhaps the greatest auction item ever, the Cleveland Browns are offering the highest bidder (and three guests) the opportunity to eat a meal at the team's training buffet with members of the offensive line. The players -- Alex Mack, Mitchell Schwartz, Joel Bitonio and John Greco -- weigh a combined 1,254 pounds and the top bid is currently $500.

Lovely Lady Round-Up 

Jocelyn Chew shared her favorite fruits with Galore Mag (click here for full-size gallery) ... I got a few complaints the last time I featured Lea Michele as LLOD, but she's on Sons of Anarchy now and that should earn her some street cred ... Some Chrissy Teigen outtakes to get you through the afternoon ... Emily Ratajkowski turned some heads with this dress.

Star-Spangled Uniforms

The Maryland football team will wear alternate jerseys this weekend to recognize the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore. The battle is best known for inspiring the poem "The Defence of Fort McHenry," which became the lyrics for The Star-Spangled Banner. The words of the poem are written across the helmet, sleeves of the jersey and on cleats. As far as the 'historical uniform power rankings," I still prefer the Gettysburg Address uniforms of the Bakersfield Condors, but Maryland is a close second.

Sports Stars Race Each Other in 1979

I was looking for an old Joe Theismann commercial since he turned 65 today and stumbled upon this bit of video gold. The 100-meter-dash heats from the 1979 Superstars competition, featuring Ron LeFlore, Bill Buckner, Bill Buckner's mustache, Maury Wills, Joe Theismann, Lynn Swann, Greg Pruitt, John Havlicek and Jim Taylor. Bonus: Bob Uecker is an analyst.
