I figured I'd just get all the lame puns about Chris Cooley's last name out of the way, so we can move on to this interview I did with the Redskins tight end. Cooley's blog has been featured many times in Hot Clicks because he seems to put himself out there and doesn't hold much back. That was proven again in the interview, where he talked about exposing himself on his blog, his feud with Cleveland fans, the lack of groupies in the NFL and much more. And yes, he requested that Julianne Hough lead off Hot Clicks. He also had another suggestion for a lead photo, but that's in the Q&A.

Speaking Of Cool Athlete Bloggers...

Mark Titus is the 12th man on the Ohio State basketball team, and he has a very popular blog called Club Trillion. Titus, who has no shot of being selected, entered the NBA draft. But, the NBA isn't happy about it. (Thanks to Michael C., of New York, for the link.)

A person with the Australian football team Torquay Tigers got caught publicizing an unbelievably offensive event.

If you haven't been watching Bulls-Celtics, you are seriously missing out. It's been nothing but overtimes, unbelievable individual performances and players hitting big shot after big shot. Here are the complete video highlights from the series.

Shady Move By The Lame Lions

It's too easy to kick the Detroit Lions when they're down. But, when a team rips off a fan buying a jersey, it has to be done. But then again, if you're buying Kevin Smith and Kevin Jones jerseys, you almost deserve it. (Thanks to David Russell, of Plymouth, Mich., for the link.)

E-Mail Of The Day

Todd, of Pittsburgh, says, "First off, love your page. Great stuff all the time. I was checking out your link to the Washington Caps cheerleaders and clicked on Sarah for some reason. The question 'Your favorite book?' got my attention. I don't know what is worse, her answer, or the fact that no one working for the Caps corrected her. I sure this isn't something you want to include on your page, thought you might get a laugh." Todd, don't be silly. Of course this is something I want to include. But I'll be honest, on my Facebook page, this is what I have listed under "Favorite Book": The Bellagio Sports Book. The MGM Sports Book. The Mirage Sports Book.

Yao Ming can't get enough of Ron Artest's humor.

George Foreman Video Of The Day

Nope. This isn't a boxing video. It's a rap about the George Foreman Grill. (Thanks to Tim LaBerge, of Minneapolis, for the link.)

Tourism Video Of The Day

Last week, I posted a video about Cleveland. The reason was not to make fun of Cleveland, but to acknowledge the creative lyrics and catchy tune. Well, the guy who put it together is back with Part II, and it's just as good. (Thanks to Brad, of Washington, D.C., for the tip.)

Random Movie Clip Of The Day

Jim, of Arlington, Va., says, "Because no matter how many times you see it, it kills every time. Since this scene came out, it has been one of the go-to sayings in my group of friends."
