Game 1 Heroes

The Red Sox dominated the Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series, jumping out to a 5-0 lead on their way to a 8-1 victory. There were many heroes for Boston: Starting pitcher Jon Lester struck out eight and only gave up five hits (which caused some fans to accuse him of cheating). David Ortiz and Mike Napoli each drove in three runs. But the three MVPs of the night didn't even play in the game. The first is retired Marine Dan Clark, whose rendition of God Bless America caused goosebumps all over Fenway. The second is this amazing fan who poured soda all over himself during a John Kruk segment on ESPN. The third is Kevin Millar, for no other reason than his awesome red shirt and the look he gives Ortiz in the above photo.

Introducing the First Ever Hot Clicks Halloween Dog Costume Contest

I've been given a bunch of 2014 SI Swimsuit calendars to give away and I thought what better way than with a Halloween Dog Costume Contest. Email me ( a pic of your dog in a Halloween costume and I'll enter your name into a hat. A week from today, which is Halloween, I'll pick 10 names from said hat and they will be sent calendars. I'll also post a gallery with all the best photos.

Speaking of Halloween

Mr. Generosity

Chiefs LB Tamba Hali took 15 friends and family members out to eat on Sunday and left a $1,000 tip (on top of the nearly $300 "included gratuity" tip the restaurant had already charged).

Odds and Ends

There is a lost Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl ring somewhere in the Chesapeake Bay ... Doc Rivers has himself a little mancrush on Jazz guard Gordon Hayward ... Vikings DE Jared Allen would not make a good quarterback ... Jimmy CONSTANTLY made fun of me because I DVR Frasier reruns but it's a great show and I am not ashamed. The cast reunited for EW's annual Reunions issue.
