Lovely Lady Of The Day
Marielle Jaffe :: Steve Granitz/Getty ImagesCaleb Sanders, of Bel Air, Md., says, "I watched Scream 4 over the weekend and it was what you would expect. However, check out Marielle Jaffe (actress/model) as a possible Lovely Lady of the Day. She was great." Good suggestion.
A Public Service WebsiteFor months I've gotten the same e-mail over and over from various readers: "Who is the girl in the T-Mobile commercials?" The answer to the question is Carly Foulkes. I mention this because reader Steven Leung alerts me to a site some of you may want to bookmark: WhoIsThatHotAdGirl.tumbler.com.
Sports Video Of The DayNormally, I wouldn't post a seven-minute video, but this piece on Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy's amazing game last Saturday (in which he led his team to a 24-point comeback against the Mavericks) is just so damn well done that I have no choice. (Thanks to Jeff, of Bridgewater, N.J., for the link.)
Singing Mishap Video Of The DayThis video has been on YouTube since 2006, but I've never seen it or heard about it until Rangers pitcher and Hot Clicks friend, C.J. Wilson, mentioned it during an interview earlier today. All I can say is, thank you, C.J.
Spoof Video Of The DayRobbie Beyer, of El Dorado Hills, Calif., says, "Hey, Jimmy, I recently got into an argument with one of my friends about who could get more views on YouTube. For some reason, we decided to make it a competition over doing the Bernie Dance. If you don't know anything about the Bernie, you basically look like a complete idiot while doing it. Being featured in Hot Clicks while doing the Bernie with my fellow dormmates and football teammates from the University of San Diego football team would be the ultimate honor. It would be great to show USD and the Bernie some love." I always enjoy helping someone win a bet.
