Deep Thoughts With Mike Leach

We're halfway through our 12 Nays of Christmas countdown and Day 6 may be my favorite. Six deep thoughts with Washington State coach Mike Leach, who doesn't come across as the sharpest knife in the drawer. And if that's not enough, you get to hear Tiffany sing!  (Nay 1Nay 2Nay 3Nay 4, Nay 5.)


Gilbert Arenas vs. WNBA

I was wondering when people would discover the ridiculously sexist Instagram video Gilbert Arenas posted a couple days ago. The video depicts a couple half-naked women playing basketball with the caption, "NOW this is what america was hoping for when they announced the #WNBA back in 1996... not a bunch of chicks running around looking like, cast members from #orangeisthenewblack." It goes on from there but you get the point. Anyhow, the WNBA struck back with a strongly worded statement and several players took to social media and blasted Arenas.


World's Fastest Runner in a Suit

Congrats to Gihan Amarasiriwardena, co-founder of fashion apparel company Ministry of Supply, who set a new record for fastest half marathon (1:35:47) while wearing a business suit. 


Lovely Lady of the Day

From the "model you've never heard of but is hotter than most models you've heard of" department, I present Valentina Ferrer. She is today's LLOD (click here for full-size gallery). 


Awkward Handshake of the Year

Kudos to Kobe for trying to play this off like it was no big deal.


Happy 100th Harry

I hope to have a day like this on my 100th birthday.


Hot Clicks Giveaway

Good news. Our friends at T-Mobile have hooked us up with an official team Seahawks jersey signed by Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman, along with a Beats Pill+ and a pair of Powerbeats2 Wireless earphones. As you know, T-Mobile’s  Music Freedom makes it easy to stream all the music you want without using your high speed data, which is even more awesome when paired with these powerful Beats products!  I’ll send the jersey and Powerbeats2earphones to the 150th person who emails me (andy_gray@simail.com) the name of Richard Sherman’s college. The consolation prize is the Beats Pill+, which is a pretty great consolation prize. I’ll send that to the 250th person who emails me that same answer. Please make the subject line “T-Mobile."
