Monday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Strange and Unusual Hockey Mascots
Bizarre Hockey Mascots
In honor of short-lived Adirondack Flames mascot Scorch, we've compiled hockey's most bizarre and unusual mascots into one handy gallery.
A-Rod Visits Alabama
By now you've seen Alex Rodriguez nearly get trampled by Tony Romo before the Cowboys-Giants game. It turns out that was the end of a busy weekend for A-Rod, who took in the Alabama-Texas A&M game in Tuscaloosa after a night at the bars and a morning of tailgating with random fraternities.
Skip Bayless Did Not Just Say That!
The First Take panelist claimed that after Kobe Bryant's 2003 rape trial, he was able to sell more sneakers because the incident gave him more "sizzle." The best part isn't the somewhat stunned reactions of host Cari Champion and Stephen A. Smith but you can tell Bayless knows he shouldn't be saying what he's saying as the words leave his mouth.
Lovely Lady Round-Up
Every so often, our friends at SwimDaily drop a bunch of untouched Polaroids from a model's swimsuit fitting. Such was the case on Friday with these shots of Nina Agdal's suits from her 2014 Cook Islands shoot. I also put together this non-Polaroid gallery of Nina. Enjoy ...

Hot Clicks Giveaway: Wilson "The Duke" Footballs
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and if you've watched an NFL game this month, you've noticed that all Wilson "The Duke" game balls for the month sport the pink NFL Shield ribbon in place of the traditional gold NFL Shield. But did you know that the good people at Wilson donate $250,000 annually to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide. You can get more more information about BCRF at bcrfcure.org and you can also view Wilson's complete line of pink products at Wilson.com. Now that we have that out of the way, Wilson has given me three of "The Duke" footballs to give away. I'll send to the 25th, 50th and 75th person to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of the mustached player featured in the Vault photo of this morning's Hot Clicks. Please make the subject line "Wilson."
Update (8:37 p.m.): Contest is closed. More giveaways coming this week. Thanks!
