Peace Has Been Reached
Yesterday's Hot Clicks led off with an angry e-mail from Ryan Stevens, of Duluth, Minn., a frustrated Vikings fan who threatened to punch me in the face over Hot Clicks' Brett Favre coverage. Tons of you wrote in to bash poor Ryan, but it's now time for reconciliation. At 2:30 yesterday afternoon, I received this e-mail from Ryan: "Jimmy, I apologize about the e-mail I sent yesterday. I promise I won't punch you in the face. Good call on Randy Moss not winning a championship. I have received a ton of Facebook crap, texts and calls already about it. Mostly hating me for the hockey comment I made. Another thing, I have read Hot Clicks for like three years now and that was the first time I have ever wrote to you guys. What a way to start." Since that was a classy move on Ryan's part, and to show there are no hard feelings, I wrote back to him and told him I'd let him choose the lady to lead off today's Hot Clicks. Ryan declined the offer and said he'd leave that up to me. So I'm dipping into the SI Swimsuit bag and giving you a rookie from this year, Esti Ginzburg. This also gives me a chance to tell you that for exclusive pics from the 2010 Swimsuit photo shoots, you should be following SI Swimsuit on Twitter.

Speaking Of Swimsuit Models And Twitter
Brooklyn Decker and Andy Roddick decided to have some fun at each other's expense yesterday on Twitter, with each revealing an "interesting" nugget about the other. Roddick told us that Brooklyn "used to practice kissing on a Taylor Hanson poster hung up on her wall when she was 10." Brooklyn retaliated by hitting below the belt (no pun intended), saying Roddick "couldn't go to sleepovers until he was 10 years old because of his bedwetting." That caused her husband to play the "I have more followers card," because he said "well at least @andyroddick embarrassing fun facts reach 113,890 more people than hers do ...... score!" Hopefully Hot Clicks has now helped Brooklyn spread her "interesting fact" about Andy to some more people.
Pretty In Pink
You're going to see a lot of pink this weekend. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month (check this out and donate here if you'd like) and several NFL players will show their support this week by wearing a variety of pink items, which will then be auctioned off for the charity. Here are some of the things you may see Sunday. Chad Ochocinco, who has a long history of being, um, fashionable, has said he will sport pink cleats, pink gloves, pink wrist bands, a pink mouthpiece and a pink chin strap.
