PROGRAMMING NOTE: There will be one edition of Hot Clicks tomorrow. It'll mostly be an all-video compilation. We'll be taking a break on Friday, New Year's Day, because you should be watching bowl games. And Andy Gray will handle things next Monday and Tuesday. I'll be back Wednesday. Have a happy and safe new year.

Another reason Twitter is awesome: Superstar athletes like Andy Roddickpost embarrassing pictures of themselves. I guess when you're already married to one of the hottest SI Swimsuit models, you can get away with stuff like that.

The Best Year-End List You'll See

Vanessa Marrero :: Bruce Yeung/Yeung Photography's look at the year in on-air mishaps is highly entertaining.

Screw Ups = Gold

I don't know anything about Mario-Kart 64: The Sunday Drivers but this piece from, which Mario Brothers characters are transformed into NFL stars, is still amusing.

Meet Eligi, Yocho And Others

The Internet is abuzz today because it's Tiger Woods' birthday. After everything we've learned about Tiger, one has to wonder how he celebrates such an occasion. How does he pick which woman to spend it with? Anyway, I digress. The truth of the matter is nobody in Hot Clicks Nation cares that it's Tiger's birthday. It's also LeBron James' birthday. That's a little more interesting because he's turning 25. The dude is just 25! Amazing. But the birthday Hot Clicks wants to acknowledge belongs to Eliza Dushku. Happy Birthday, Eliza.

Lovely Lady Of The Day

Eliza Dushku ::

With bowl season about to kick into high gear, you can get tons of information on each BCS game you plan on betting watching in's Blog Bowl.

A couple of weeks ago, Hot Clicks asked you to help 12-year-old leukemia patient, Jack Barker, raise money to buy Snuggies for all the kids at the Children's Medical Center in Dallas. (The kids like to wear the Snuggie during chemotherapy treatment because it keeps them warm and doesn't restrict use of their arms.) The response from Hot Clicks Nation was awesome and overwhelming. I heard from Jack's mother who was extremely grateful to all of you who donated. And that 2009 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year issue that Derek Jeter signed went for $1,125 on eBay, all of which will be sent to Jack. I thank each and every one of you who donated. Great job!

Charity Follow-Up


This Mike Leach situation has brought out a lot of, uh, passion in people. I'm not sure what's worse in this clip. The caller or the two hosts who actually laugh at the caller's unfunny diatribe.
