Girls, Girls, Girls
Maria Sharapova, Marisa Miller, Stacy Keibler and Amanda Beard are just four of the women who crack FHM's newly released list of the 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2008. If that isn't enough for you, here's yesterday's gallery of "The Women of Hot Clicks," in case you missed it. And here's something for those of you who just like the headline on this item.
NFL Draft Round Up
Grateful Blue thinks the Detroit Lions should take a page from George Costanza's book. The Angry T reveals the draft's All-Porn Name team. And Redskins tight end -- and all-around fun guy (just read No. 7 here) -- Chris Cooley, who is now blogging for Yahoo! Sports, writes about his draft day experience in 2004, when he was taken with the 81st pick.
Speaking Of The Draft

eBay Item Of The Day
The bidding has ended on this auction, but we just want you to know that you missed out on a chance to own The Curse of the Seattle Supersonics. If you think that's amusing enough, get this -- someone actually paid $17.03 for it. (Thanks to Grant, of Baltimore, Md., for sending us the link.)
Best Player + Best Announcer = Good Times
In case you missed the last couple of minutes of the Kobe Bryant Show last night, Awful Announcing has the video. Sure, Kobe embarrassing and humiliating J.R. Smith is amusing, but for us, the highlight is Marv Albert. There's still no better play-by-play man in sports. Just listen to the extra oomph he gave on the "And the FOUL" call. (UPDATE: 12:36 p.m.: Awful Announcing is on a roll today. Check out this story about Law & Order allegedly taking on Tom Brady.)
We're Buying One
Get your Rick Roll'd T-shirts. (Thanks to K.C. Weber, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for sending the link.)
