I don't want to ramble on too much about my trip to Chicago, but I have a few things to mention. Obviously, if you're a baseball fan and you haven't been to Wrigley Field, you have to get there at least once in your lifetime. I recommend the following: Hang out at The Sports Corner Bar & Grill before the game. Stay at Hotel Felix downtown. Try an alcoholic milkshake at Hamburger Mary's. Do karaoke at the Blue Frog Bar & Grill. Now back to Wrigley Field. One of the few negatives about the stadium (in my opinion) is that the men's rooms do not have urinals; they have troughs. I mentioned this on Twitter Saturday and was amazed by how many people responded with a pro-trough stance. Most folks who defended the trough used the argument that it's efficient and helps eliminate a wait to use the facilities. I still say using a trough is barbaric, so I'm putting this to a Hot Clicks Nation vote. (As for the picture above, many folks on Twitter also questioned my sanity for taking a photo in the men's room. I snapped the pic at the very end of the men's room where no one was standing, As you can see, no male organs are showing and the photo has zero chance of ending up on Deadspin.
Speaking Of Taking Photos In The Men's Room...Someone recently snapped a photo of this Cardinals fan. Or is he a Royals fan? Either way, the jersey is ridiculous.
Latest Ozzie Guillen MeltdownThe White Sox skipper got tossed during last night's game against the Cubs after arguing a call and kicking Geovany Soto's catcher's mask a good distance. The best part of the clip is Soto laughing at Guillen's antics.

A New Sports BlogHot Clicks favorite, Jaime Edmondson, has started her own sports blog for Playboy.com.
