Hot Clicks: Colts owner Jim Irsay mails fan $8,500 in cash for winning contest

An Owner You Can Root For
Jim Irsay :: AP


Colts owner Jim Irsay held a little contest on Twitter Sunday in which he asked his followers to predict the final score of the Ravens-Patriots game. The prize he offered was $8,500. One guy guessed it correctly (Ravens 27-13). Yesterday, he received a FedEx package that contained $8,500 IN CASH. This is a great story, but makes me feel a little embarrassed that the prize for most Hot Clicks contests is a DVD.
NFLOL
You really can't make up some of the stuff the NFL does. The league prints money and we're all addicted to the game, so they can get away with anything they want. But the NFL office is a joke in so many ways. As Hot Clicks told you yesterday, Niners running back Frank Gore was fined $10,500 for having his socks too low. Obviously, that's pathetic in and of itself. However, the NFL made the Gore penalty look even more absurd when it later fined Patriots quarterback Tom Brady $10,000 for an aggressive slide against Ed Reed. Now, let me be clear. I don't think Brady's slide was dirty or egregious in any way. However, for argument's sake, let's say the slide was dirty. (Obviously, the NFL thinks the slide was dirty because they punished Brady.) In the NFL world, a dirty play that can injure someone gets you fined less than how you wear your socks. OK, got it.
Easiest Money Ever?
All that stands between new Phillies outfielder Delmon Young and $600,000 is eight pounds. Young's new contract with Philadelphia has several weight clauses that require him to get down to 230 pounds. He's currently at 238 pounds.
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Sonni Pacheco


Canadian model Sonni Pacheco is in the news because of her relationship with actor Jeremy Renner. I have no idea if the reports are true or not, but all that matters is she is more than worthy for today's LLOD honors.
Gross Injury Photo Of The Day
Serena Williams injured her ankle at the Australian Open and tweeted a picture of it yesterday. To say it ballooned up would be the understatement of the year.

Live TV Video Of The Day
I saw this on The Soup last night, so full credit goes to that show for this item. Giants pitcher Barry Zito and musician Kelley James performed a song on Good Day L.A., last week. When they finished the tune, the host came over to do a quick interview, but had no idea which guy was Zito. (Fast-forward to the 3-minute mark for the awkwardness.)

Weather Video Of The Day
Everyone's freaking out because it's cold in January. Who would've thunk it? It's just craziness! Anyway, in honor of this shocking development, here's a compilation of people not handling the winter weather all that well.
