Sportscape's blog, SideLines, points out that Manny Pacquiao will perform in a few concerts right after his fight with Shane Mosley on May 7. It's not hard to understand why such a bold move would be considered a true sign of taunting. With that, Sportscape has compiled a list of the 15 best athlete taunts, which includes Dikembe Mutombo's famous finger wag and the time Michael Jordan returned the favor to Mutombo.

Pia Toscano :: Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty ImagesIf you watch American Idol, you know a travesty took place last night, when Pia Toscano was eliminated.

Rockwell Bonecutter. Mercedes Bunz. Orel Oral.You might've thought we were done featuring brackets in Hot Clicks, but you'd be mistaken. There are two more you need to know about. The first is the Name of the Year competition. The headline features three of the participants.
The Other Bracket Of Note...Is "The Dance," run by Seattle radio station, 950-AM KJR and its morning show, Mitch in the Morning Show. The competition to determine the most beautiful celebrity, used to be called "The Bigger Dance," but the NCAA actually sent the station a cease-and-desist letter for copyright infringement. It's good to see the NCAA worrying about something important. Anyway, you can scout the field here, fill out a bracket here and listen to my recent appearance on Mitch in the Morning breaking down the field here.
