Reby Sky has been in Hot Clicks before because she was known as the official New York Giants Girl. Based on this video via FHM.com, she's breaking out of that mold and becoming a top model. Therefore, she gets today's LLOD honors.
Equal Time
Danielle, of Boston, says, "Jimmy, I read Hot Clicks every day, twice a day. I think I read it more than my boyfriend. We often talk about the great stuff you link to and sometimes he doesn't know what I'm talking about. I think he skips some editions. I don't. I even like the LLOD every day. So, I think you should honor ME and all the ladies in Hot Clicks Nation by posting this picture of David Beckham."

The Hot Clicks Podcast
Those Guys Have All The Fun, a 700-plus page book about the history of ESPN, hits bookstores on Tuesday, May 24. I was lucky enough to get a copy Wednesday right before SI.com media reporter Richard Deitsch and I interviewed author James Andrew Miller. (For tidbits from the book, scroll through my Twitter feed.) Miller talks about what went into his reporting, the feuds that are highlighted throughout the book (Chris Berman vs. Tony Kornheiser is a doozy), the debacle known as The Decision, how Deadspin is like "crack cocaine" to ESPNers and much more. You can listen below, download it on iTunes or download it to your mp3 player.

Sports Video Of The Day
Mavericks guard JJ Barea appeared on a Telemundo talk show a few years ago. For some reason, the show had him play basketball against a couple of little people. (Thanks to Zak, of Princeton, N.J., for the link.)

Takedown Video Of The Day
Tyler Traxson, of Manhattan Kan., says, "Your link to the top trespassers reminded me of this Kansas State Wildcat favorite. It happened before the days of YouTube so it never gained much exposure. We could really use a security guard like that on K-State's D-line now days." Folks, it doesn't get much better than this. Enjoy.
