Mustaches are one of the few things that bring us all together. Whether it's mocking this old shot of John Riggins, chuckling at a '80s photo of Lionel Richie or admiring the participants in the 2009 World Beard and Moustache Championships pictured above, everyone is uniquely entertained by the mustache. So without further ado, we present the best movie mustaches of the decade.
Speaking of Lionel Richie ...
Steve Nash put together this hilarious video of the Suns on their team bus trying to learn All Night Long, Richie's 1983 hit single.
America's Most Annoying Couple
I believe the goal of this story is to show how Doug and Jackie Christie, whose lovey-dovey marriage has been the butt of many jokes, should be vindicated after the Tiger Woods scandal because athletes are going to them for advice on how to make a marriage stick. But all it did was remind me of how annoying Doug and Jackie Christie really are. Unless you think renewing your vows every year, exchanging love coupons for foot massages and telling your wife you love her 72 times in one game is normal behavior.
Lovely Lady of the Day

Hot Clicks reader Will Henderson requested I make SNY's Alexi Panos our Lovely Lady of the Day. If you don't know her, Panos is the host of a NYC sports quiz show called Beer Money. She is also pretty good looking, as these pics indicate.
Bad Ideas in Halftime Entertainment
I know the Raptors have to fight for entertainment dollars in a hockey city, but is Vanilla Ice really the answer to sagging attendance? Somebody in the team's front office thinks so as the movie legend is set to perform at halftime of the Feb. 2 game against the Nets. Get your tickets now!

Carl Landry is Tough Video Of The Day
You've probably seen this clip from Friday's Mavs-Rockets game, but if not, Dirk Nowitzki's elbow met Carl Landry's front teeth and the results weren't pretty. What's amazing is how nonchalant Landry is after losing three teeth, asking out of the game like he needed to tie his shoe. That dude is tough.

Jack Bauer Video Of The Day
A number of people sent this clip in of Jack Bauer interrogating Santa Claus. If nothing else, it should get you excited for 24 next month.
