Friday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Xenia Deli: Social Media Fails By Sports Teams
I'm sure you're familiar with Tiffany Oshinsky for all her Mustard Minutes, but did you know she's always dreamed of being a football kicker? Can her dreams come true? Find out in this Mustard Minute.
Social Media Fails
The 76ers Twitter account delved into politics with a tweet about Republican candidate John Kasich, then immediately deleted said tweet. The Patriots, in the most un-Patriot move ever, trolled the Jets Thursday with a photo of the Butt-fumble. The tweet was quickly deleted and the team's social media person is
unconscious in a locked room awaiting punishment from Bill Belichick excited for the weekend.
Hot Clicks Giveaway: Mets T-Shirts!
I'm so excited about this giveaway that I'm promoting it before the Lovely Lady of the Day (a Hot Clicks first!). Our friends at Fanatics have two new Mets t-shirts in honor of the National League Champs. I love the Daniel Murphy MVP one, but the Team of Destiny is pretty great also. Purchase yours today! In the meantime, I have two of each shirt to give away. I'll send them to the 25th, 50th, 75th and 100th person to tell me (via email at email@example.com how much the Born to Run house is going for. The answer was in this morning's Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line "Fanatics."
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
I spent a few minutes interviewing Xenia Deli, who visited the office for a SI Swimsuit Casting Call a few months ago. I think they're still picking up the drool from the ground. She is today's LLOD (click here for full-size gallery).

Peyton vs. Dirk
I totally think this will happen. A charity will be involved, Twitter will go nuts and the tall German guy will win.

Hot Clicks Follow-Up
Remember the story I posted about St. Edward High, which had to play all its home football games on the road because its field was mistakenly sprayed with weed killer instead of fertilizer? Good news! Scotts teamed up with Brian Urlacher (the school is located in Elgin, Ill.) to restore the field and the team plays there for the first time Friday night!
I'm going to the String Cheese Incident tonight at Madison Square Garden. I hope they play this song.
