Injury Of The DayWhat does one do after having a ruptured testicle surgically removed? If you're Pro Rugby league player Paul Wood, who injured the sensitive body part during a match on Saturday, you make jokes about it on Twitter.

Proposal Video Of The DayAaron, of Ventuckey, Calif., says, "I usually don't go for all these cheesey engagement videos, honest I don't. No, really. Usually I'm like 'yah whatever you're married, congrats, now down in front, there's a game going on.' Maybe because it's Monday morning and my 17th cup of coffee hasn't quite kicked in yet, or maybe it's because I'm experiencing hyper-emotionalism in coping with the worst Red Sox season in my lifetime, or maybe I'm just inspired by Mila's bum this morning, I don't know. Regardless, if you haven't seen it already, you gotta check out this proposal. Give it a sec, it's like the Detroit Lions, a real slow starter. S---, errr, sorry, crap really 'takes off' (get it) around the 1:40 mark. The ending is full of all happy happy bubblegum and puppy dogs so you may want to turn your speakers down, unless, I don't know, you like being happy and all that jazz. Whatev'."
Honestly, the proposal below is pretty good, but the main reason I'm posting it is because I loved Aaron's e-mail.
Tearjerker Video Of The DayI totally screwed up by not including this in today's A.M. Hot Clicks, but it still needs to be seen even though it's a little old by now. If you didn't catch what A's pitcher Pat Neshek did Saturday night, you need to check it out.
