Wednesday's Hot Clicks: CJ Franco; Dolphins superfan gets married in helmet
Love is in the NFL air
It's not very often that I get to lead Hot Clicks with an NFL-themed romance story—much less two—but that seems to be our situation right now. In New England, Patriots coach Bill Belichick posed for Nantucket Magazine with longtime girlfriend Linda Holliday and the photos are cheesy and spectacular. Of course, these two have been celebrating their love for years. Meanwhile in England, a diehard Miami fan named got married in his Dolphins helmet.
Thank you, Brent
Brent Musburger still isn't sure why his 2013 comments about Katherine Webb, where he "called a beauty queen beautiful," became such a big story. I'm not sure either but two weeks after his comments, I was at a studio with Katherine while she stripped down to a bikini for SI Swimsuit, so it worked out for me.
Teammate of the Year
The Nats stole seven bases against the Cubs last night and catcher Miguel Montero wants you to know that it's all Jake Arietta's fault.
Lovely Lady of the Day
CJ Franco has never been featured in Hot Clicks before and that's a really bad job by me. I apologize. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).

This is not how a 72-year-old should look
