Olivia Munn and Sports
Welcome to a 100% Deflategate-free version of Hot Clicks. There's much more important news out there, such as Olivia Munn saying she had no clue Aaron Rodgers was an NFL star when they first met. Yeah, right. And I had no idea Kate Upton was a swimsuit model the first time we met. Considering Munn's vast experience in the sports world, excuse me if I don't believe her.
Move Over, Vince Wilfork
Vince Wilfork got a lot of pub for helping a stranded motorist Sunday evening. Lee Westwood deserves some love, too. The 41-year-old golfer was vacationing last week in Barbados, where he charged into the ocean to save a man from drowning.
The $700 Super Bowl Commercial
It costs $4.5 million for a national Super Bowl commercial, but how much for a regional one? If the ad is airing in Helena, Montana, it's only $700. Vox Media will air an ad for its tech news site (The Verge) just in that region. It's an extremely clever marketing idea since the ad is getting widespread publicity by blogs (like this one).
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
I haven't featured an Australian model all week, which is something I will rectify right now, thanks to Carissa Walford (click here for full-size gallery).

Odds & Ends
A Ukranian soccer player took a phone call in the middle of a match ... There's nothing like a bunch of dudes in Speedos while you're attempting a free throw ... Guess which ballpark food consists of a one-pound ground beef patty topped with half a pound of bacon, grilled onions, a pile of melted cheese and red-pepper mayo on a pretzel bun? ... This breakfast sandwich is another culinary masterpiece ... Do Knicks fans deserve a refund? ... Will Tampa Bay take Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick? ... Kobe Bryant still wants Rajon Rondo to join the Lakers ... A Batmobile baby stroller ... A 109-year-old woman said the key to a good life is
sex, drugs and rock n' roll porridge and no men.
