Marisa Miller, ESPYs and more: Hot Clicks

It was a busy night on both coasts yesterday. The ESPYs were held in L.A. Here are the best pictures from the red carpet arrivals, which featured plenty of attractive celebrities and big-name athletes. And here are some more. As for us, we attended two events in New York City, with mixed results. First, we hung out with Joba Chamberlain at an Xbox Live Game with Fame event. Tomorrow, we'll have a Q&A with Joba and video of him engaging in some heated trash talk while playing Guitar Hero: Aerosmith against his best friend. After that, we went to a party for Marisa Miller (apparently the SI Swimsuit cover model is a shoe designer). But because we're losers -- and because we have to wake up early to bring you Hot Clicks -- we bailed on the event at 10:30 p.m., before Miller even arrived. The picture above is from last night and shows just what we missed.

We often link to features that compare athletes to various things. But this offering from NEPatriotsDraft.com might be the most original one we've seen. It's matching up NFL players to television networks. For example, it says Joey Porter is CNBC because "like Jim Cramer, Joey loves to hear himself talk and generally leaves things worse than when he showed up."

This Cleveland Indians fan pours his heart out in a song. And believe us, "pours his heart out" doesn't even begin to do his performance justice. (Thanks to Travis, of Cleveland, for sending us the link.)
