Hot Clicks: Sabina Gadecki can cheer up Knicks fans, baseball's best mustaches

I came across this collection of funny touchdown celebrations and couldn't help but reflect back to my youth and a little dance known as the Ickey Shuffle. I went to YouTube and came across this gem of a now-overweight Woods recreating the classic dance at a charity basketball game last February. I don't know how much influence Hot Clicks really has, but if Chad Ochocinco recreated this dance after a TD before the end of the season, the world would be a better place.

When it comes to fashion trends of the '70s and '80s, nothing beat the mustache. As a young Keith Hernandez and Rollie Fingers demonstrate in the above photo, it was once a must-have look among big leaguers. Blue Jay Hunter has a two-part look at the best mustaches in baseball history (here is Part 1 and Part 2).
Some people will look back at the biggest upsets in 2008 and mention the Giants stunning the Patriots in the Super Bowl or Tampa Bay beating out the Red Sox and Yankees in the AL East. For my money, nothing was more shocking than the engagement of Kansas' 61-year-old superfan "The White Owl" to an attractive, 22-year-old former Kansas student. Well, I'm sad to report that not only did the wedding never happen, but the White Owl is now in jail after allegedly violating a protection order filed by his ex-fiancee and not showing up to court for a hearing.
When I am not filling in on Hot Clicks, I run SI's online archive, better known as The Vault. If you like seeing great old sports photos, such as this 1985 shot of Charles Barkley alone in a movie theater, or this 1983 picture of John Elway relaxing in his Stanford dorm room, I suggest you follow the SI Vault on Twitter. If you miss Jimmy, you can follow him on Twitter or join the Hot Clicks Facebook group for more links and videos that don't make Hot Clicks.
