Ya Know, He IS From The Howard Stern Show

Joe Buck's new show is the hottest thing on HBO since Emmanuelle Chriqui. OK, that's an awful and embarrassing joke, but at least it gave me a chance to mention (and link to photos of) Entourage's Sloan. Now, let's talk about Buck's show. It's only "hot" because Artie Lange, from The Howard Stern Show, hijacked Buck's debut episode with an appearance that turned into train-wreck TV. Lange delivered vulgar one-liner after vulgar one-liner and took shots at Buck throughout the segments. Whether you thought the jokes were funny is up to you. But here's what is crystal clear: Buck should send Lange a fruit basket this morning. Because without Artie's off-the-wall appearance, all people would be talking about is how boring and unwatchable the show was until that point.

More Cooley Coolness
Here's more proof Hot Clicks favorite Chris Cooley is one of the most fun athletes in sports.

Cleveland Comes Through
The Cleveland Indians can't do much right on the field, but off the field they are excelling at giving away great bobbleheads. It's hard to determine which is better: The Shin-Soo Chobobblehead, which looks like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, or the Ricky Vaughan bobblehead.

Sports Video Of The Day
A couple of Lakers fans weren't happy that I posted a video of a Celtics fan hitting Kobe Bryant's picture with a baseball bat the day after L.A. won a title. Here's my olive branch. A remake of I Love College, titled I Love the Lakers. (Thanks to Rrafe Schley, of Hancock, Minn., for the link.)

I'm not gonna start featuring these every day again, but this one was too good to pass up thanks to the last line. (Thanks to Adam Stokes, of Baltimore, for the link.)
Megan Fox Video Of The Day
I got tons of e-mails about Megan Fox's appearance in Hot Clicks yesterday. Most of them said "more, more, more." Well, Mike Brown, of Buffalo, N.Y., has come through with this.
