Women of the Year: Hot Clicks
In today's edition of the 2008 Clicksy Awards, we're honoring the women who are often featured in Hot Clicks (with a bonus question at the end.) You can still vote in the three previous categories (Bizarre Stories, Highlights of the Year and Video), we featured this week. And remember to click on the nominees in each poll for more information. Once again, The Women of the Year.
We'll take the explanation right from the Las Vegas Sun: "The ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Calgary Flames will don prison-style uniforms to pay tribute to recently disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Jan. 30 against the Victoria Salmon Kings."
Also featured in the 2008 Clicksy Awards was a category for Most Bizarre Injury of the Year. Well, it turns out some of those stories may not be true. Gibbs 12 has uncovered what REALLY happened to several athletes who suffered hard-to-believe injuries.

The Boston Red Sox will sport these new uniforms next season. Red Sox Monster has a full report and many more pictures.
As you know by now, Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe was accidentally exposed by Fox cameras that were in Minnesota's locker room last week. But for Shiancoe, there's an upside -- he's getting some interesting offers. If Shiancoe, turns them down, maybe Michael Wilbon will step up.
Yesterday, we linked you to a photo of someone making CC Sabathia's new jersey. It was all in good fun and we'd never just make a cheap fat joke about someone, so today we're going to show the real Sabathia jersey. ... TheChive.com has compiled 70 of the most amazing sports action photos ... And this site has plenty of gems, especially the Plaxico Burress photo.
Those of you not from New York can skip this item. We saw a link on MikeFrancesa.com yesterday that we wanted to embed down below in our "Videos of the Day" section, but the YouTuber has disabled the feature. If someone can repost it so we can embed, we'll be eternally grateful. The video features a caller getting snippy with host Mike Francesa, telling him to "be quiet." Of course, that was a dumb move on the caller's part because it automatically gets you an emphatic handwave from the Big Guy. On a side note, we're sure nobody from WFAN reads Hot Clicks, but in case they do, we'd like to nominate Sal Licata for the opening on the show. We're big fans of the "Sal Special."
Yesterday, we told you about Jennifer Aniston's nude GQ cover. Here are more pics from the shoot. ... Carmen Electra is on the cover of Playboy's 55th anniversary issue ... Model Dasha Astafieva is also in the issue ... And In Game Now has a detailed look at athletes who have appeared in Playboy.

If you watched the WWF while growing up in the '80s, you'll thoroughly enjoy the first minute of this clip. If you got back on the wrestling bandwagon in the late '90s when Stone Cold and The Rock were around, you'll enjoy the first two minutes of the clip. If you're still watching the WWE, you'll enjoy the whole thing.
Here are 40 inspirational speeches in two minutes. How many of the movies featured in the clip can you name? (Thanks to James Zerda, of Dallas, for the link.)
