Hot Clicks Q&A

I'm going to attempt my first-ever Hot Clicks Q&A since people have been sending me questions as of late. How do I pick LLODs? What's Tiffany like off camera? How do giveaways work? Why do you keep shoving Bruce Springsteen videos down our throat? Anything you want to know, just ask. I'm an open book. Email me at and make subject line Hot Clicks Q&A. 

'Chipper Rescues Freddy' Bobblehead

Remember in January 2014 when Chipper Jones rescued Freddie Freeman during a freak snowstorm in Atlanta? The Braves are turning it into a Bobblehead.
