Ranking Steve Spurrier's best insults
Former Buccaneers star (and shirtless college football coach) Steve Spurrier was speaking at the Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon in Shreveport when someone asked him about the importance of recruiting. Spurrier, ever the opportunist, used the question as a chance to take a shot at LSU by saying, "You can have good ballplayers and still not win football games—all you LSU fans know about that.” Where does this rank among Spurrier's best insults? Find out here.
Rally Cat is St. Louis' new sports hero
The Cardinals were trailing the Royals 5-4 in the sixth inning of a random August baseball game Wednesday night when a hero emerged from our of nowhere. That hero was a small, pesky cat who fought with a ballboy on his way off the field. Play resumed and Yadier Molina hit a grand slam that sparked the Cards to victory. Now the team has a new mascot and the ballboy is in the midst of his 15 minutes of fame.

Hot Clicks Giveaway
Our good friends at ARNOLD Worldwide teamed up with the New England Revolution on the team's first-ever brand campaign. In the two ads, the Revolution sent out British redcoats to mess with modern New Englanders by enforcing old colonial acts. The reactions are pretty hilarious. The first video is embedded in the video section at the bottom of the column and the second can be found here. To celebrate this new ad campaign, I have three Revolution jerseys to give away. I'll send to the 100th, 200th and 300th to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the two former college quarterbacks (one from USC, the other Notre Dame) who got into a minor Twitter spat earlier this week. The answer was in yesterday's Clicks. Please make the subject line "New England Revolution."
