The Peyton Manning saga is over. The future Hall of Famer is headed to Denver, which leaves the future of Tim Tebow up in the air. For today, though, we'll focus on Manning. SportsPickle.com says the acquisition is John Elway's greatest career moment and has a photo to back up the claim. Meanwhile, Las Vegas wasted no time in putting up various odds about Manning, the Broncos and Tebow.
ScaryBaseball people are very curious to see how Miguel Cabrera handles his move to third base this season. The Tigers slugger had to leave today's exhibition game against the Phillies after getting hit in the face with a hard grounder.
Speaking Of Groundball Disasters...The effort by this Hooters girl, who for some reason was acting as the ball girl for that same Tigers-Phillies game, was not acceptable. Unless she just didn't want to bend all the way over with fans so close behind her, there's no excuse for that attempt.
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Maria Menounos :: Bob D'Amico/ABC via Getty imagesThe new season of Dancing with the Stars begins tonight. Will we be watching? Absolutely not. The Erin Andrews season was enough to make me want to hang myself. However, Hot Clicks does support Maria Menounos and we'll be featuring all of her dances and asking you to vote for her. We're also giving her today's LLOD honors.
Bobby Knight At It AgainOver the weekend, several people noted that ESPN college basketball analyst Bobby Knight refuses to say the word "Kentucky" on the air because of issues he's had with Kentucky coach John Calipari. Obviously, Knight acting immature should be as surprising as Kate Upton being mentioned in Hot Clicks. After all, we are talking about the guy who is responsible for this profanity-laced rant, who threw a chair during a game, who insulted reporter Jeremy Schapp and who famously berated a public relations person. Anyway, earlier today The Big Lead tried to ask Knight why he won't say the word "Kentucky." Things did not go well.
Live TV Video Of The DayI saw this video earlier today of Phoenix newscaster Kayley O'Kelley dropping an f-bomb on the air when she found out Peyton Manning was going to Denver instead of Arizona. I tweeted the video and it spread around the Internet pretty fast. However, O'Kelley got in touch with me to explain what she really said. Watch the video below first. Then read O'Kelley's side of the story.
Dancing Kid Video Of The DayThis kid would get me to watch Dancing with the Stars.
Jimmy's A Stalker Video Of The DayA few weeks ago, I announced that Hot Clicks would start a campaign to get Brazilian model Lisalla Montenegro in next year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Apparently, I have more pull than I thought because Montenegro was in the SI building today to meet with Swimsuit senior editor MJ Day. (For the record, Day says she had her eye on Montenegro before Hot Clicks started the campaign, but I don't buy it.) When I found out Montenegro was here, I went on a mission.
