In Case You Missed It
Sure, the NBA and NHL playoffs were in full swing this past weekend, as was a full slate of MLB action. But the highlight of the weekend came Friday afternoon, when SI Swimsuit model Marisa Miller threw out the first pitch at Wrigley Field. Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster clearly was never so excited about this longstanding baseball tradition. On205th.com also comes through with several photos from Miller's big day.

It Wasn't Even An Episode Of Dallas
Apparently the third period of Saturday night's Wild-Avalanche playoff game on Versus was cut off for a Victoria Principal makeup infomercial.

SI.com college football writer Stewart Mandel stopped us on Friday to let us know that he really wanted to see us mention tonight's return of Gossip Girl. We have an "ask and you shall receive" policy here at Hot Clicks, so here are a couple of links. Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, along with Friday Night Light's Minka Kelly and Adrianne Palicki and We Are Marshall's Kate Mara, crack CoedMagazine.com's list of 19 Emerging Hotties of 2008. Meanwhile the cast stripped down to their skivvies for a New York Magazine cover shoot. And in that cover story, New York Magazine says GG is the "best show ever."
Let's Kick Him While He's Down
Just because he got canned late Friday, that doesn't mean we should let up on Isiah Thomas. Buge Hoobs puts tongue in cheek as it presents a list of his greatest achievements. SI.com's Richard Deitsch has compiled a slew of absurd quotes by Isiah. Fan IQ offers a video "tribute." And this site has made T-shirts to commemorate this current version of the Knicks.
JoeSportsFan is tired of all the praise Bo Jackson has received, so it's honoring Underappreciated Video Game Athletes. And quite frankly, you gotta love any list that features Tyrone Wheatley from Bill Walsh College Football and "Anyone from the corner" in Double Dribble.
Watch Out For These Guys
Watching vintage clips of classic meltdowns never gets old, so here are Baseball's Biggest Spazzes, presented by Maxim.com. (Thanks to JoBu, of New York, for sending us the link.)
Major Movie Talk
We saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall over the weekend, and while looking at Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis for two hours was enjoyable, the movie was pretty disappointing. Anyone agree or disagree? This now leaves Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, opening this Friday, as the next must-see flick. (Side note: Neil Patrick Harris was on Howard Stern's show this morning and gave a great interview, that you can find at the 7:20 a.m. mark of the link, which contains strong language. And Artie Lange is back and all is forgiven.) But the movie we really can't wait for, is this one. Lastly, does anyone know if this is real?
