Jimmy is out this week. He's recovering from six straight weeks of Hot Clicks two-a-days, so I'll be filling in through Friday. Luckily, the two of us share many of the same editorial interests. One such interest is MMA Ring Girls, which is why it is with great sadness that I read about Logan Stanton's departure from UFC. It appears she badmouthed the wrong person in a interview and was given her walking papers. I hope someone (cough, WWE) picks her up so we can see more photos like these and these.

I would like to send condolences to any fantasy owner who sat Jerome Harrison (286 rushing yards, three touchdowns) this week. If it makes you feel better, it was probably the correct decision since the Browns' running back has been quiet all season, but it must hurt to leave 40-plus fantasy points on your bench. Hopefully, the Eagles mascot, Swoop, will cheer you up. Another group of fans who need cheering up are Jets followers who watched their team blow three field goals three different ways (block, missed, bad hold) in a 10-7 loss to the Falcons. According to Rex Ryan, however, the Jets D will win them a Super Bowl at some point, so you have that to look forward to in the future. The feel-good moment of the day took place in Denver, where JaMarcus Russell replaced the injured Charlie Frye and led Oakland on a last-minute touchdown drive to beat the Broncos, 20-19. The feel-bad moment took place in San Diego where the Chargers squeezed out a last second win over the Bengals. A Cincinnati win would've taken on special meaning after Chris Henry's death. And the feel-scared moment of the weekend took place during Andrea Kremer's post-game interview with Steve Smith, who called out Vikings' DB Bennie Sapp. And if you know Smith, you do not want to get him angry. Just ask Ken Lucas.

I am not saying that Andy Reid is going to glide down your chimney on Thursday night, but you can't deny a similiarly in looks between the Eagles' coach and Saint Nick. The Sporting Muse has more holiday look-alikes.
The New York Post is holding a contest to vote on its best cover of the decade. I don't want to rig the voting or anything, but anytime Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton appear on the cover with the headline "Bimbo Summit," you're just not going to top that.

When I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run SI's Vault, which has every story SI has written in the magazine's 55-year history. I also have a Twitter account you should followwhere I like to post old and embarrassing photos of athletes, such as a clean-cut Phil Jackson in college, 20-year-old Charles Barkleymunching on some pizza at Auburn or the sex symbol that is Gaylord Perry. If you still need your Jimmy Traina fix this week, follow him on Twitter here.

Mat from Toronto sent in this video of what appears to be another run-of-the-mill speech until the translator gets a little ticked off (Warning: There is an F-bomb in the video, but it's in another language so that's fun.)
