Eva Mendes
Eva Mendes :: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images is conducting The 2009 Great Male Survey. The site came to me for some sports questions and, naturally, I worked in one about gambling and another about the hottest woman associated with sports. On a similar note, recently had me participate in its "Six Questions With" feature. And because I care about you guys, I worked in an Eva Mendes mention. When you read the feature, just click on her name. Trust me.

Reporter Harassment Video Of The Day
As always with these clips, the best part is the reaction of the anchors in the studio.

Local News Video Of The Day

I'm calling B.S. on this one right now. There's no way this aired on a newscast. There are no chyrons or graphics. The reporter's tone is laughable. And, well, what can I say about the cardboard cutout? (Thanks to Steve Cook, of San Diego, and John, of North Carolina, for the link.)
