We had a roundup of athlete-related Halloween costumes in today's A.M. Hot Clicks, but as you can see from the photo above featuring former Steelers wideout Hines Ward as a zombie, we have even more costumes to bring you in this edition. Niners quarterback Alex Smith dressed as Captain America and had the coolest family picture. ... Baby Mike Ditka was outstanding. ... Paulina Gretzky, whom we highlighted in A.M. Clicks for her ringmaster costume, also dressed as Katy Perry ... Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson dressed as Tony Stark while his girlfriend, Lisalla Montenegro, dressed as Superwoman. No disrespect to C.J., but we're glad he was the one who was masked. ... Lastly, TheFootballGirl has a thorough roundup of more NFL players in costume.
What If?Some interesting hypothetical colege football point spreads from Pregame.com (with all games being played on a neutral field):
The line on Alabama-Oregon would be Bama -6.
The line on Alabama-Kansas State would be Bama -10.
The line on Alabama-Notre Field would be Bama -13.
The line on Alabama-Jacksonville Jaguars would be Jags -24.

Sara Carbonero :: Pablo Blazquez Dominguez/Getty ImagesSince I don't have access to SI.com's publishing system thanks to Hurricane Sandy, my colleague, Chris Sesno, is doing the production work on Hot Clicks today. As a reward for his hard work, I asked him to pick today's LLOD. His first choice was Blake Lively. Obviously, she's a great choice. However, she was in Hot Clicks a few months ago, so I asked him for another choice. Sesno's second choice was Miranda Kerr. Another excellent choice, but she was also in Hot Clicks a couple of months ago. Finally, Sesno came though with this: "Sara Carbonero is probably the hottest WAG out there." While that is debatable, you can't debate the fact that Carbonero is a fine choice for today's LLOD honors.
The Last Word On The World SeriesYes, the World Series ended on Sunday, but it's not too late to enjoy the Taiwanese animation recap of the Giants' sweep over the Tigers.
Random LinksKings guard Aaron Brooks lost a tooth while diving for a loose ball last night. ... Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is back with another video in which he fools people as " Uncle Drew." ... Because we can't just have a basketball game, teams use fog machines to get the crowd excited or scare their opponents. Anyway, at last night's Rockets-Pistons game, nobody knew how to turn off the fog machine.
