When I last left you on Friday afternoon, Hot Clicks was having fun with the absurdity of local news. Who knew shortly thereafter, the biggest local news gaffe you can imagine would take place? I think this might have been the most e-mailed video to me in Hot Clicks history. The weekend also saw Tim Lincecum throw no-hitter in which he tossed 148 pitches and had this amusing reaction to an umpire taking a ball to the twig and berries, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel get sent home from Archie Manning's camp because he partied a little too much, and Baron Davis revealing that he was abducted by aliens.
