The emails that have come off my Brett Favre rant in A.M. Hot Clicks have been overwhelmingly positive, so there's not much more to say about Sunday's title games. But neither outcome should've surprised anyone when you remember what Sports Illustrated's two covers were last week.
Jim Nantz Loves The Jonas Brothers"These guys are gonna be the biggest thing since the Beatles," says the CBS announcer, who saw the band four times last year.
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Elisabetta Canalis :: Tony Barson/Getty ImagesChris Apple, of Williamsburg, Kent., wants to see Elisabetta Canalis as the LLOD, and says, "She dates George Clooney, and has the hottest Italian accent to compliment her great curves." Since Clooney did a good thing last Friday by organizing a telethon that raised $57 million for Haiti, we think we should keep the hot streak alive by giving his girlfriend our daily honor.
Talk About The Nosebleeds!In case you missed it over the weekend, the Kings-Red Wings game in Detroit was delayed because a fan climbed into the catwalk. Whoever called the game bypassed politically correct comments and went right for the jokes, saying "If he falls, that's too many men on the ice for Detroit."
Uh OhHot Clicks posted video of a CollegeHumor.com prank a while ago in which a guy was blindfolded and took a half-court shot for $500,000. Obviously, he missed the shot but the crowd went crazy to trick him into thinking he won the money. Olathe Northwest High in Kansas recently tried the same prank on a teacher. However, there was one problem. (Thanks to Curt, of Olathe, Kan., for the link.)
Sports Video Of The DayIf you want to see how one Vikings fan responded to Brett Favre's interception last night, you can watch this video. But I'm warning you, there are three ENORMOUS F-bombs in the clip. (Thanks to Chris, of Seattle, for the link.)
One More Angry Fan Video Of The DayVia BareNucks.com comes this clip of a Redskins fan who, for some unknown reason, was rooting hard for the Vikings.
Spoof Video Of The DayVia the YouTube description: "For "Jayrock 2010," the annual student-athlete variety show at the University of Kansas, the original cast of Jersey Shore -- more commonly known as the Kansas women's Soccer team, allowed the Jayrock film crew to follow the team around the Kansas Athletic Facilities."
