Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks: The Walt Frazier Soundboard Has Arrived
Walt Frazier Soundtrack
Walt "Clyde" Frazier is a man of style. Who else rode the NYC subways in the mid '70s dressed like this? Or slept in a round bed with a mirrored ceiling?

Political Loser Night
In one of the best promotions I've seen this year, the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League are celebrating the losers of yesterday's elections. Fans who bring a piece of junk mail from a losing candidate will get a one-dollar discount on their ticket. Bringing a lawn sign from a losing candidate is worth three dollars. Candidates from the 10 Iowa counties who lost their races are entitled to free tickets. The game falls on the 14th anniversary of the controversial Bush-Gore presidential election.

Happy Anniversary (to me)
Our good friend Jimmy sent out this tweet yesterday marking his one-year anniversary at Fox, which means it's my one-year anniversary of running Hot Clicks. Just wanted to thank everyone for their support as traffic has remained steady and nobody has tried to fire me yet. As always, I want to hear from you so please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) any thoughts, criticism, praise, suggestions and everything in between.
Much Ado About Nothing?
Tony Allen is in the news after he smacked a camera, causing a small injury to the cameraman, during Monday's Grizzlies-Pelicans game. The cameraman in question, Bo Bradley, tweeted after the game that it was no big deal and people should focus on the Grizzlies' victory. Others thought it was a bigger deal. The NBA fined Allen fined $15,000 for the incident. Where do you stand?
