The Month in Sports Dancing
Oklahoma coach Mike Gundy shaking his tailfeather? Steve Young doing the Ray Lewis? Clemson coach Dabo Swinney doing the whip? An old guy doing some thing that doesn’t have a name?

Football season is in full swing and our friends at Dammit Doll want you to take out your anger and frustration on their dolls. With that in mind, they’ve offered a 20% discount for all Hot Clicks readers. Just visit the Dammit Doll website and use the code “DDWDSI15” to get yours. The code will last until Friday. Even better, they’ve offered me three dolls, which I’ll give to the 100th, 200th and 300th reader to email Sir Andrew (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of Clemson’s oldest living fan. The answer was in A.M. Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line “Win Dammit.”
Update (6:15 a.m.): Contest is over. Winners will be notified. Thanks for playing.
Give Me Civil War

Also, I’m not entirely convinced Tom Cruise isn’t a superhero after watching this video of him holding his breath underwater for six minutes. I can’t hold my breath for six seconds.
Muhammad Ali says he wants to be remembered as “the best heavyweight boxer of all time.” To honor Muhammad Ali, whose lifetime of achievement forever changed the world, SI is renaming its Legacy Award the Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
