We try to take a couple of days off to recover from the opening weekend of the NFL season and all hell breaks loose. Tom Brady gets knocked out for the year. Vince Young may or may not have been missing. And Brenda Walsh was nowhere to be found on last night's episode of 90210. But there are two pieces of news more important than those. First, baseball producer Ted Keith decided not to enter a starting lineup for Week 1 of our fantasy football season. Who the !@#$ doesn't enter a lineup in Week 1??? Keith needs to be publicly humiliated for that move, and I'm here to do it. Second, my Hot Clicks fill-in Andy Gray committed a big no-no yesterday and I'm here to apologize. Gray wrote "We still think NESN's Heidi Watney puts Erin Andrews to shame..." Now, you have to know that Gray is from Boston, hence, Monday's lead item and this ridiculous statement. He was clearly trying to stir the pot and rile you guys up. He knows that Erin Andrews is basically the first lady of Hot Clicks, and he knew this line would ruffle some feathers, and it worked. Marc, of Granger, Ind., e-mailed to say, "Heidi Watney can't hold Erin Andrews' microphone. It's not even a close comparison." Justin, of Boston, said "Wow, the last thing I expected to see in Hot Clicks was a diss of Erin Andrews." And Jason, of Austin, Texas, said "Heidi will come and go like the rest of the sideline reporters. Erin is here to stay. Try to resist the flavor of the month." We agree with all of these astute readers. When it comes to looks, personality and sideline reporting, EA takes a back seat to nobody!
