History of Super Bowl Cheerleaders

There's been a lot of Super Bowl storylines discussed over the past 10 days -- deflated balls, Marshawn Lynch vs. the NFL, Brady/Belichick going for his fourth Super Bowl title, to name a few -- but nobody is talking about the cheerleaders. At Hot Clicks, we refuse to put baby in a corner (baby, in this case, being the Patriots and Seahawks cheer squads). Here's a look at Super Bowl cheerleaders over the years to get you ready for Sunday's game.

One Way to Enjoy the Super Bowl

As a sign of support for the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, a Seattle medical marijuana dispensary is rolling 12,000 joints in honor of the team — and the 12th man.

These Stats Will Be Higher in Seattle

Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest eating days of the year. How much will people eat? About 11.2 million pounds of potato chips, 1.25 billion chicken wings and 24,000 pounds of nachos. Toilet spray company Poo-Pourri (no, not making that up) has all the stats for Sunday's consumption.

Throwback Lovely Lady of the Day

Back in 1998, I fell in love with Ali Landry after she starred in a Super Bowl ad for Doritos (posted below). I can't think of a more appropriate Throwback LLOD for the Thursday before the Super Bowl (click here for full-size gallery).

Another Option for Johnny Football

I've been a little disappointed with Johnny Manziel's Instagram page the past couple months. He used to post fun pics (like the time he hung out with the Duck Dynasty guys), but now it's just random pics of him and his girlfriend. I mean, who wants to see a blurry photo of the two kissing? I hate to say it, but he's become that friend who used to hang out all the time, then got a girlfriend and is never heard from again. So if you're reading this Mr. Football, check out Barbara Desiree (a.k.a. -- Playboy South Africa’s Miss January 2015), who has a huge crush on you. Get on that.

You Don't Wanna See That

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx announced the group will play a song onstage if and when the Patriots win the Super Bowl. Here's my favorite Crue song, performed live at the 1990 MTV Music Video Awards.
