Earlier this week, I asked you guys to submit questions for an all-reader mailbag edition of Hot Clicks. Most of the e-mails that came in focused on LLOD requests, but a few of you asked some questions and submitted some videos. This first item will address three of the better questions I received. The rest of this edition will feature links and videos directly from members of Hot Clicks Nation.
Have you ever received any death threats via e-mail because of something you posted on Hot Clicks? -- Jeff, Grand Rapids
- Only recently with all the Call Me Maybe videos I've posted.
As someone who enjoys reading extended interviews, I'm curious as to whom is on your wish list. Who would be your top five past and current (tangentially-sports-related, at least) public figures to interview? -- Mike Reed, Pittsburgh
Howard Stern is not tangentially sports related, but he'd be my dream interview. When it comes to sports, even though I just interviewed Tom Brady, I'd put him at the top of the list since you said "extended interview." I only had 10 minutes with Brady, so I'd love to get a chance to talk to him for a half hour or more. Other current sports figures to round out the top five would be Tim Tebow, Alex Rodriguez, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.
I have been a long time reader of Hot Clicks. It is my go-to website twice a day! My one question is since Hot Clicks is one of my favorite web sites, what are your top five non-sports related websites that you personally like to visit on a regular basis? -- Thomas
I won't say Twitter.com or YouTube.com even though I spend more time on those two sites than any other. In no order, 1) TVTattle.com; 2) Buzzfeed.com; 3) Gawker.com; 4) TheNightWatch.com; 5) DontEvenReply.com.
In Honor Of Kansas City Hosting The All-Star GameEric G., says, "I'm really hungover right now and feel like death. I don't think any video can brighten one's day quite like this one from George Brett. I'm sure you've posted it in Hot Clicks before, but this never gets old." (Warning: Video contains VERY strong language.)
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Jessica Rafalowski :: Jordan Strauss/WireImage)Earlier this week, Neil Livengood, of San Diego, said, "JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI, JESSICA RAFALOWSKI." A couple of days later, Neil was back, and said, "OK, Jimmy, Melanie Iglesias is super f'in hot. I'll give you that. On Wednesday you said, 'She's been featured about a million times, so lets make a million and one.' My response to that ... Jessica Rafalowski, Jessica Rafalowski. How many times must I bother you until I get my way? Just put her in Hot Clicks, and you can even tell everybody how much I bothered you." So now you guys can see how Neil bothered me despite the fact that Jessica Rafalowski was in Hot Clicks on May 25 and June 13. However, his enthusiasm is justified (and I need to get him off my back), so Jessica Rafalowski gets today's LLOD honors.
Prince Of A GuyKevin O'Connell, of Brooklyn, N.Y., says, "Since this week is so dry how about we pay tribute to the best dancer in boxing (or royal) history?"
Snuggle UpRyan, of Rochester, N.Y., says,"Jimmy, check out this new business that just started up here in suburban Rochester. Sign of the apocalypse?
Sports Video Of The DayThe Maple Leafs get the Gotye treatment in A Franchise That I Used To Know. (Thanks to Matt Kruger, of Toronto, and Zack Gallinger, of Toronto, for the video.)
Music Video Of The DayIf you need more Gotye, Dave, of Newmarket, Ontario, says "You've probably already got this one 100 times today, but it's GOLD! Check it."
Local News Video Of The DayThis report about a bear on the loose in upstate New York takes an interesting turn. (Thanks to Jon Volpe, of Reston, Va., for the video.)
