Porn on the Ice

Blues vs. Predators :: Getty Images

I'm Super Bowl'd out at this point and was hoping to find something else to lead Hot Clicks with this morning. Enter the Fox Sports Tennessee coverage of last night's Predators-Blues game, in which the familiar sounds of porn interrupted an otherwise mundane broadcast. Twitter, as to be expected, had some funny reactions to the incident. While we're on the subject, Craigslist sex ads are all over the place in Arizona while Tinder is also seeing a huge uptick in advance of Sunday's game.


Super Bowl Updates

Now that we've covered the important news, here are some Super Bowl predictions from animals and members of the sports media ... Rex Ryan joked that Bill Belichick probably set the fire alarms off himself ... Here's what the world looked like the last time New England won the Super Bowl (sidenote: Who is Mario?) ... Tom Brady dressed up like Joe Montana on Halloween in 1983 ... Celebrities who look like Katy Perry ...  The starting lineups for the 2015 Puppy Bowl ...

Two Completely Different Homecomings

The Timberwolves may be 8-37 this season and lottery-bound for the 11th straight year, but they sure know how to troll, With Kevin Love, arguably the second-best player in franchise history, coming to town on Sunday as a member of the Cavs, the team posted a YouTube video dubbed, "#TheReturn." But the video is actually a tribute to Love's teammate Mike Miller, who spent the 2008-09 season in Minnesota. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, the Lakers gave fans these "Thanks Pau" T-shirts last night to commemorate Pau Gasol's first trip back to Los Angeles since signing with the Bulls. 


Meet the Newest SI Swimsuit Rookie

The 2015 SI Swimsuit Issue comes out next Tuesday and we will be unveiling a new rookie each morning in Hot Clicks until that day. Yesterday was Victoria's Secret model and Skokie, Ill., native Erin Heatherton. As for today, I present to you Ashley Smith, the pride of Austin, Texas. (click here for full size gallery).

Ashley was in the office last week shooting videos for SwimDaily (home of all things SI Swimsuit and a good site to put in your rotation for the next few weeks), so I creepily lurked in the background and shot this video. It's pretty fantastic if I say so myself.
