Jimmy is taking the day off and gave me the keys to the Hot Clicks car. If you're a fan of Katy Perry, that's a good thing. The buxom singer was a guest judge on American Idol Tuesday night and tore into fellow host Kara DioGuardi for being too nice, then threatened to throw a drink in her face. In the words of Cosmo Kramer, CATFIGHT!! Anyhow, Perry is now saying that she'd ditch her music career for a chance to permanently host Idol. If you find yourself wondering what all this has to do with sports, you clearly haven't seen this gallery of the connections between American Idol and sports.

Screech, Scandals and Saved by the Bell
According to claims from Dustin Diamond (aka, Screech), the set of Saved by the Bell more resembled a Cinemax After Dark movie than a Saturday morning NBC show. Of course, Diamond has been ostracized from the group which make his claims hard to believe. It's still a fun read, though.
