Don Cherry: Fashion Icon
Hockey legend Don Cherry turned 81 on Thursday. To celebrate, we have assembled a gallery of his boldest fashion statements. On a sidenote, I've always dreamed of doing an SI video of Cherry going clothes shopping with Walt Frazier. If either of you fancy dressers reads this, please email me (email@example.com) and we'll make this happen!
One Place to Stay All-Star Weekend
The NBA's annual All-Star Weekend takes place in Brooklyn next weekend and one Bushwick resident is trying to cash in. Unfortunately, his idea of a "cozy" weekend home is actually a big mound of snow located a few Subway stops from the Barclays Center. Though at $1,300 for the weekend, it's not a terrible price.
Saved by the Bell Night
The Brooklyn Cyclones, who hosted SI Swimsuit night last August, have announced the greatest theme night in sports history. On June 24, the team will host Saved by the Bell Night. The game will include A.C. Slater’s Sitting Backwards Musical Chairs, Mr. Tuttle’s Learner’s Permit On-Field Obstacle Course, Oldest Cell Phone in the Ballpark Competition and (best of all) anyone in stonewashed jeans can run the bases after the game. I am telling you right now that I'll be there. You should go too.
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
Taylor from Seattle wrote in to request I give some love to Emma Stone. As luck would have it, Emma is among the girls you can vote for in AskMen's Top 99 Outstanding Women of 2015 poll. Did I mention I'm one of the panelists? Anyhow, she earns P.M. LLOD honors (click here for full-size gallery).
Hot Clicks Giveaway: Darrelle Revis Autographed Shirt
Our friends at Steaz (a healthy beverage company) want to get the word out about their partnership with Super Bowl-winning cornerback Darrelle Revis. And like any smart company, they turned to Hot Clicks. I will send an autographed shirt and Steaz cans to the 50th, 100th, 150th and 200th person to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of this morning's LLOD. So remember to #KeepItSteazy and drink Steaz!
If you haven't noticed, I've been off Hot Clicks duty the past few days to prepare for SI Swimsuit launch week, which starts Monday in NYC. I will not return to Hot Clicks until Wed., Feb. 18. I know, it's sad. But my replacements - Lindsay Applebaum, Pete Blackburn and Brendan Maloy -- are more than capable and you'll hardly notice I'm gone. In the meantime, I'll be posting all kinds of behind-the-scenes Swimsuit content (such as this video of Nina Agdal) to my Instagram and Twitter accounts. If you're not following already, this would be a good time to start.
Who Wants To Get Shaved by a Swimsuit Model?
SI Swimsuit will be setting up a giant tent in Herald Square Monday and Tuesday for its first-ever Fan Festival, where you can meet the models, try out some products from our sponsors and (best of all) get shaved by a swimsuit model (courtesy of our friends at Schick). The party will head to Nashville on Wednesday and Thursday so stop by if you're around. It should be fun, even though my request for a kissing booth was denied.

My New Favorite Band
I found myself in the Time Inc. TV studio on Wednesday when this random band was playing for People Magazine's online show People Now. The band is called 2Cellos and they rock. Check out this version of Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal.
