Week's Wackiest Photos
I know what you're thinking -- there's nothing sexier than a group of hockey players in tutus (with Samantha Hoopes' Pledge of Allegiance pose a close second). Check out more craziness in this week's wackiest photos gallery.
Feel-Good Story of the Day
A man traveled from Italy to run the NYC Marathon, only to realize when the race was over that his wedding ring slipped off his finger somwhere along the 26.2 mile course. So he flew home empty-handed and had to face the wrath of his wife. Just kidding. He posted about the lost ring on the New York Road Runners Facebook page and one of the volunteers found it and returned it to him.
Feel-Bad Story of the Day
A 47-year-old woman, who a decade ago held the distinction of being the NFL's oldest cheerleader, was indicted on nine counts after allegedly giving oral sex to a 15-year-old boy.
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
It's been a while since I featured the great Tiffany Toth and for that, I have no excuse (click here for full-size gallery) ... Miranda Kerr still looks good in lingerie (if you were wondering) ... Gail Kim is one of the more underrated pro wrestling babes ... Letters to the Editor from old SI Swimsuit issues.

To further celebrate, SkullCandy has given me three pairs of Skullcandy Crusher headphones to give away. I'll send them to the 25th, 50th and 75th person who emails me (email@example.com) the name of any sound byte from the Walt Frazier soundboard, which led A.M. Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line "Skullcandy."

Concession Food Item of the Week
Anyone in Ottawa feel like a chopped prime rib in a sweet steak sauce, Sriracha mayo and crispy Tabasco onions sandwiched between a potato scallion bun. Then topped with frisee lettuce. Then topped with a melted provolone and tomato slider on a brioche bun. Then topped with onion rings and served with roasted garlic and pepper fries? I suggest going to a Senators game and asking for the Sens Prime Rib Double Decker, which can be had for the low price of $18.

This waitress fooled a customer into buying a bottle of $3,750 wine ... People are calling this the worst Saturday Night Live sketch of all time ... The Mean Girls cast reunited for the film's 10th anniversary ... Why it takes so damn long to board an airplane.
Tom Brady, Mic'd Up
The Patriots quarterback congratulates Julian Edelman after the receiver returned a punt for a touchdown. You can tell how much Edelman loves having Brady as a teammate. Here are some more videos of Brady from Sunday's victory over the Broncos.
This is Terrifying
