Friday's P.M. Hot Clicks: Peyton Manning and his Tube Socks
Rare Photos of Peyton Manning
Peyton Manning was in a good mood yesterday until some loud fans and a disrespectful scoreboard operator flustered him like few defenses ever can. He's probably still upset about the enormous tube socks his parents made him wear growing up. Or maybe it's the Yankees jersey in frame two of the above gallery. Regardless, we have an all-encompassing collection of rare Peyton Manning photos that are worth five minutes of your time. Also, apologies to any Tennessee fans upset by this tweet I sent out Tuesday. It was just a joke. Please don't hurt me.
The Porn Star and Receiver
We told you yesterday about Notre Dame freshman receiver Justin Brent going on a date to the Knicks game with 42-year-old porn star Lisa Ann. First, this is a great PR stunt for Lisa Ann. Even if the date was PG-13, she wins because she's been talked about more in the past 48 hours than in the past three years. Second, it probably wasn't PG-13 since this (SFW) Instagram photo of the two in bed is spreading across the internet. Third, Darren Rovell is the worst. Seriously.
Concession Food Item of the Week
I usually find the most disgusting/awesome food item I can for this space, but I wanted to feature something Royals-related since they are in the World Series. So if the Pulled Pork Mac N' Jack Sausage isn't for you, check out the enormous Turkey Gobbler Sandwich, an $11 monster consisting of house-roasted turkey breast, stuffing, cranberry sauce and warm gravy on a freshly baked roll. If that doesn't do it for you, travel to South Korea and try the Zinger Double Down King, a bacon cheeseburger with fried chicken breasts as buns.

Food Snobs Eat McDonald's
Two Dutch pranksters sneak into a large food-industry expo and ask attendees to sample their "new, organic alternative to fast food" from their "high-end restaurant." In reality, they are serving up cut-up pieces of what appears to be McDonald's fare, including muffins, burgers and nuggets. Make sure to enable English subtitles in "Settings." (H/T NPR.org)
