Allow me to share with you the opening paragraph from this Chicago Tribune story: [Chicago] Fire defender Krzysztof Krol called the phone number on Patrycja Mikula's Facebook page in May even though he'd never met the Playboy model. Less than two months later, Krol and Mikula were saying "I do." I'm sure none of you want to check out Mikula, but here's a link anyway. (Thanks to Josh, of Chicago, for the tip.)
World Cup Follow Up
Wednesday's P.M. Hot Clicks featured Landon Donovan's ex-wife, Bianca Kajlich as the Lovely Lady of the Day. This generated a couple of e-mails. Jordan Connor, of Arlington Va., said, "Jimmy, at the end of the game a reporter was interviewing Donovan, and at the end of the interview he crowbarred in a "Hi Bianca" (or some such salutation). What is the status of their relationship? And was it an acrimonious split? I'm curious to know the motive behind Donovan's saying hi to his ex-wife. My girlfriend thinks he was good intentioned, that they are possibly on the mend, while I think he was being sarcastically vindictive, basically saying "eff you, look at me now". Can you delve into this for us? Dying to know." And Rich, of Buffalo, N.Y., said, "Jimmy, to many reader's dismay, I don't think Bianca Kajlich is Landon Donovan's "ex-wife" as suggested in today's hot clicks... I think they are still very married, in fact he blew her a kiss in his post-game interview. See 1:34 of this clip." Here is the scoop on Donovan and Kajlich.

Also, Tim, of Peoria, Ill., says, "Why is soccer broadcast in any language other than Spanish? Also, I will be in the UK next week. How appropriate is it for me to remind every Englishman I meet that we won the group and they didn't?" I have no idea what's appropriate, but I do know that you have an excellent point about the Spanish broadcast based on this clip of Donovan's goal.

Phillie Phanatic At It Again
Wednesday's A.M. Hot Clicks told you about a fan suing the Phillie Phanatic after he jumped on her knees and allegedly caused an injury. Today's Hot Clicks brings you this story of the Phanatic performing a sexual act on another mascot. (Warning: Link contains strong language.)

Here's a list of things you could've done in the 10 hours that Isner and Mahut battled.
Today's "Courting LeBron" Update
OK, this might be the best LeBron James plea to date. The Web site is BringLeBronToKC.com -- yes, K.C., where they don't even have an NBA team. (Thanks to Justin Hoppock, of Derby, Kan., for the tip.)
WAGs Bracket Follow Up
Last week, Hot Clicks linked to a soccer WAGs bracket tournament. They've just gone into the second round and you can vote here. And to piggyback on what I said earlier this week, if you don't have Melissa Satta at least in your Final Four, you're dead to me. She even seems to be making a push for votes.
Sports Video Of The Day
This catch by Florida's Matt Den Dekker is simply one of the best you'll never see. It happened at the College World Series last Sunday. For another angle, click here. (Thanks to Andrew Houk, of Gainesville, Fla., for the link.)

Absurd Commercial Of The Day
