The Bengals' QB situation gets interesting, and more NFL notes

Week 2 is in the books, and Peter King has a full wrap-up in MMQB. Also of note: This poor Chiefs cheerleader got destroyed by a cameraman ... Why you should feel bad for Younghoe Koo (those cannons didn't help) ... Great work here by the NBC music department ... Jags fans are doing weird things with mayonnaise ... Everyone is in love with Tony Romo as a broadcaster... Marshawn Lynch danced on the sideline and it was magnificent ... Nobody in L.A. cares about the Rams or Chargers ... ​Colin Kaepernick finally broke his silence. Could he replace Andy Dalton and start for Cincinnati?

Jemele Hill Update

Friend of Hot Clicks Richard Deitsch has the backstory behind media members using Jemele Hill as their Twitter avatar. Meanwhile, ESPN faces many challenges if they choose to fire the controversial SportsCenter anchor.

Accidental exposure

As if ESPN doesn't have enough on its plate, along comes some unexpected nudity.

Lovely Lady of the Day

I am home for the weekend and enlisted my mom to choose today's LLOD. I gave her a choice of five girls and she opted for model Kristina Peric. I think she did a wonderful job (click for full-size gallery).

Think it's fun when sports teams spar on Twitter? They have nothing on museums.

Hot Clicks Giveaway

Saturday was National Guacamole Day, and I planned to celebrate with a Wholly Guacamole giveaway in Friday's Hot Clicks. Then I forgot all about it. So here we are, doing the giveaway two days late. My apologies. Anyhow, Wholly Guacamole is in most supermarkets (the ones I go to, at least), is made from hand-scooped Hass avocados, and is pretty delicious. I have five prize packs to give away and will send to the 50th, 100th, 150th, 200th and 250th people to email me (andy_gray@simail.com) their favorite thing about Hot Clicks—or least favorite. Either will do. Please make the subject line "Wholly Guacamole."

Today in fun stats

Congrats, Wisconsin!
