My inbox got completely stuffed during my mini two-day vacation, so I've decided to address the key e-mails in this space.

Did you happen to see any of the Indycar finale on Sunday? Scott Dixon's wife Emma is WAY hot! I'd put her up against any NASCAR wife, any day, including Jeff Gordon's wife Ingrid Vandenbosch. -- Sweaty Teddy, Bristol, Conn.

Let's not get crazy with the comparison's to Ingrid. But Emma is easy on the eyes.

I got this in an e-mail today. It is funny stuff, but I don't have a link to where is came from. Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators during the Summer Olympics that they would like to take back:

1. Weight lifting commentator: This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing. 2. Dressage commentator: This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother. 3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father. 4. Boxing Analyst: Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious. 5. Softball announcer: If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again. 6. Basketball analyst: He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces. 7. At the rowing medal ceremony: Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew. 8. Soccer commentator: Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field. 9. Tennis commentator: One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them... Oh my God, what have I just said? -- Chris, Woodridge, Ill.

This almost makes me wish I watched the Olympics.

Thought you and the good folks at Hot Clicks would get a kick out of this. Since the NFL season is now underway, the Emmitt Smith "grammar watch" is on as well. There is now a line of clothes called Emmitt's School of Grammar. As an added benefit, 25 percent of proceeds are going to the Room to Read foundation. -- Clint M, Moncton, Canada

Anything for charity -- and to make fun of Emmitt Smith.

We've currently got a poll running on our site. In the video of the Redskins fantasy football draft, Fred Smoot calls Matt Ryan, "a pair of shoes." In light of that, we wanted to determine if it is time to give Matty Ice a new nickname. -- Colin Hoggard, Charlotte

Fred Smoot stole that show in that video. And I still say it's one of the best I've ever seen.

I attended the University of Iowa college football game on Saturday (Iowa was playing the ever perennial powerhouse Florida International University) and I was wondering who was the blonde sideline reporter for the Big Ten Network. She looked delicious from my seat and was wondering what her story was. -- Michael, Ankeny, Iowa

Michael, keep reading.

NESN's Heidi Watney is OK, but have you seen Ashley Russell on the Big Ten Network? -- Tony Lengeling, Carroll, Iowa

Yes, we have. And she is a big reason why I'm happy I get the Big Ten Network on DirecTV.

Would you consider adding Lindsay Czarniak from Washington D.C.'s NBC 4 sports team to your list of hot reporters? Thanks! -- Andy, Annandale, Va.

I added her right after seeing this.

The Patriots. Daunte Culpepper. Randy Moss loves him. Post this story before some other newspaper does! -- Matthew O'Barr, Kansas City

OK. Consider "the story" posted.

I was wondering what was up with the Erin Andrews diss. Speaking of which, please tell me that you have a pic of the wonderful EA in a bikini somewhere? -- Herc, Atlanta

I wish I could. I wish I could.

Former Miami Heat reporter, now with MSGNY, does half time interviews, etc., for the Knicks. Jill Martin. Like EA; beautiful, well-spoken, and most important, competent when talking sports! -- David, New York City

I'm embarrassed to say, as a New Yorker, that I've never seen her before. But that's what happens when the Knicks are unwatchable for nearly a decade.

This site is of a current Buffalo Jills cheerleader, Jenica. I went to college with her and her twin sister (also an ex-Bill cheerleader) and I think they'd be a perfect fit for's NFL weekly cheerleader pics. Who doesn't enjoy two great looking twins, especially when one is currently an NFL cheerleader and one used to be? -- Chris O'Brien, Buffalo

I'll pass the message along to the folks who work on those galleries. In the meantime, this should satisfy your twin fetish.

I'm not big on horse racing, however, seeing a picture of Canadian jockey Chantal Sutherland may get me a bit more interested. I couldn't really find any good pics of her off the track, aside from this one. But a very nice picture it is. -- Matt, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Indeed it is.

I'm not a hot chick but, I went to a local Class A baseball game tonight. I got free tattoo of their logo as a promotion, and received tickets for next season. If this sounds like an interesting story from a loyal reader, let me know, and I'll send along all pertinent info and pictures. Thanks for your time, and keep up the good work. -- Lee Tackett, Mentor, Ohio

Even though Lee isn't a "hot chick," here's the article and a photo.

Dear Hot Clicks,

Cal Poly football seems to have been the butt of many jokes in the last week or so. I have heard the College Gameday Crew mispronounce our name and Tony K. joke that he thought we only had a math team. As a matter of fact, this was the second time in three years that our football team has beaten San Diego St. at their place. We actually have a pretty good Div I-AA team (currently ranked 12th to 14th depending on the poll).

Not only that, but we have some very interesting football alumni. Ever wonder why John Madden has that bus and doesn't fly? Turns out he graduated from Cal Poly a couple years before a plane crash killed about a dozen of his former teammates, hence his fear of flying. Besides Madden, we also have some current NFL players, including Chris Gocong, starting linebacker for the Eagles.

Kyle Shotwell was the leading special teams tackler for the Colts this summer and is currently on the Vikings practice squad.

Courtney Brown currently plays for the Cowboys.

If you could please help me regain some respect for our program it would be greatly appreciated. PLEASE!!! I'm begging of you, seriously. I know Extra Mustard has the readership to get us back to unknown and not comic fodder. -- Steve Sharer, San Luis Obispo, Calif.

I think "Cal Poly SLO" is one of the great nicknames in college sports, so I'd be happy to help. People of the world -- please stop making fun of Cal Poly SLO!
