HOT CLICKS UPDATE (4:53 p.m.): This morning, we introduced the world to Murray State alum Chrishell Stause and why she's the main reason to root for the Racers. Five hours later, Murray State pulled off the day's biggest upset.
The tournament is in full force and there's too much happening too quickly for me to comment on it. I will mention a hilarious moment during last night's Clippers-Bucks game. Mark Jackson was calling the game and shared a story about eating at the same restaurant as Michael Clarke Duncan the previous night. Apparently, Duncan left without paying the tab and Jackson had to pay his bill. Duncan was sitting next to Jackson throughout the telling of the story and didn't seem that pleased with Jackson. You Been Blinded has it all on video.
Two More BracketsI swore I was done with all forms of March Madness brackets, but then two came into my inbox today that are tremendous. The first is by thatfan.com and it ranks the best breakfast cereals. I have Frosted Flakes, Trix, Total and Cookie Crisp in my Final Four with Frosted Flakes taking home the title. The second bracket is by Spartyandfriends and ranks the best sitcoms. It goes without saying that Cheers should win, strictly because of Kevin McHale's awesome cameos.
Hotties of the Women's TournamentSome may argue that the women's tournament is as exciting as the men's -- I am not one of those people. However, if you feel inclined to watch the females duke it out, Soxanddawgs.com has compiled the best-looking women to watch in this year's tournament. And that explains why my new favorite hoopstress is Georgia's Anne Marie Armstrong. Go Dawgs!
Lovely Lady of the Day
Tiffani Thiessen :: Jason Merritt/Getty ImagesWith Tiger Woods ready to take aim at Augusta next month, BroBible has compiled a solid list of notable sex comebacks. Included in that list is Dustin Diamond (aka - Screech), who starred in a sex tape last year. Of course, Screech is best known for Saved by the Bell, and that brings me to the lovely Kelly Kapowski, played by Tiffani Thiessen, our Lovely Lady of the Day.
Glanville Disses FavreThis is a great little sports nugget that I didn't want to get lost in the NCAA tourney shuffle. Apparently, Atlanta coach Jerry Glanville traded Brett Favre to the Packers nearly 20 years ago because Favre couldn't stay sober in Atlanta and Green Bay was the only city Glanville thought could keep the QB out of trouble. Of course, Glanville used to leave tickets at will-call for Elvis Presley, so consider the source. Speaking of Elvis, here's a nice gallery of the connections between Elvis and sports.
For the Hockey FansIt should be interesting in Boston tonight when the Bruins take on the Penguins. When these teams met last week, Boston's top player (Marc Savard) was taken out by Penguins agitator Matt Cooke with a blind-side hit to the head. The Bruins did nothing to retaliate and have listened to critics question their manhood ever since. The NHL's discipline chief, Colin Campbell, will be in attendance but expect some old-fashioned fisticuffs in tonight's game. To get you in the mood, check out this 1988 fight when Cam Neely just destroys current Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff.
Follow me on TwitterWhen I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run the SI Vault and post old, often embarrassing, photos of pro athletes and coaches. In honor of Brigham Young's double-overtime win over Florida today, here is Danny Ainge from his BYU days. And just for the baseball fans, here is Ainge in 1981, as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays.

I got excited when I read that Val Kilmer is starring in a biopic about Meatloaf, but it turns out that Kilmer has just gotten fat.
Hot Clicks Picks SNL Host Video of the DayI mentioned yesterday that Hot Clicks readers should email me with a choice of an athlete to host Saturday Night Live. Why not -- it worked for Betty White. The votes are pouring in and many readers want to see former NBA great Gheorghe Muresan. This commercial shows how funny he could be. So vote for Gheorghe!

One Shining Moment - 2005Yes, I think I am just going to put one of the One Shining Moment videos in Hot Clicks every day until Jimmy comes back. Bonus points for this one because at the 55-second mark, Rasheed Wallace jumps and actually gets more than 1.5 inches off the ground. As a Celtic fan, I've yet to see that sight this season.
