In Monday's Hot Clicks, we look at an overzealous Eagles fan colliding with a subway pole.
Eagles fans are ready for the Super Bowl
Peter King's MMQB is a must-read. The rest you can judge for yourself: Tom Brady dropped a great pregame F-bomb coming out of the tunnel ... Jaguars fans should be upset about this play ... Richard Sherman has thoughts on the Rob Gronkowski hit ... CBS cameras captured Blake Bortles crying after the game ... Bill Belichick is a passionate clapper ... This 99-year-old Eagles fan was a bit mouthy leading up to the game, as was this guy ... Vikings fans dressed the Rocky statue in purple and gold but Eagles fans had more embarrassing problems ... Mike Trout attended the NFC Championship game in disguise ... The Eagles cheer squad has no fear ... Eagles fans are excited for the Super Bowl, I just hope this poor guy make a full recovery.
Dwayne Johnson gets his own musical
"The People’s Rock: A Musical" will stage at London's Network Theater from Jan. 24-28 and is described as a “teenage fantasy/religious role model hybrid of The Rock, as a bleak world attempts to curb momentary hope.” Dwayne Johnson isn't taking part but his character will be played by a puppet while the rest of the cast are live actors. Uproxx has a great piece casting famous puppets in various roles.

One way to deter pole climbing
Good morning from Philly where crews from the city are greasing the light poles with Crisco to prevent #Eagles fans from climbing after the #NFCChampionshipGame tonight. #Vikings pregame coverage starts at 3 on FOX9.

James Harrison likes cupping
Photo by @fritzphotos // Words by @petergwin New England Patriots linebacker James Harrison (@jhharrison92) knows about pain—KNOWS about it. For nearly two decades he has been delivering and receiving devastating blows on NFL fields. This afternoon, at age 39, he will step onto the field for today’s AFC Championship Game as the oldest defensive player in professional football. (His teammate @tombrady is a year older and among the oldest offensive players.) Last spring, he let photographer Fritz Hoffmann and I visit him in Arizona #onassignment to document his workouts (lots of power lifts) and meticulous health routine (no alcohol, refined sugar, or processed carbs). In between weightlifting sessions, we asked him his secret for playing such a violent game at such a high level for so long. “Ain’t no damn secret, man. HARD WORK, lots of hard work!” Well that, and a lot of attention to caring for his body. Harrison spends about $350,000 a year employing a team of specialists, including massage therapists, acupuncturists, and chiropractors, who help manage the punishment his body endures. One of them is Codi Hoos, a massage therapist who uses cupping, an ancient therapy practiced for centuries in China, to reduce muscle soreness. I mentioned to Harrison that scientists are skeptical about cupping some of the other treatments he uses. Harrison shrugged. “All I know is before I get treated, I HURT, and after, I feel better.” #NFL #Defense #Cupping #Patriots #Newengland #footballer
