There's a big court case going on in Connecticut right now that's trying to determine whether cheerleadering is a sport. Obviously, Hot Clicks says, "Hell, yes, it is." But even if that case determines it's not a sport, I want to assure you, Hot Clicks Nation, that cheerleaders will always be a part of this column.

The Blue-Jays Phillies series this weekend was supposed to be played in Toronto, but had to be moved to Philadelphia because of the G20 Summit taking place in Toronto.

(Thanks to Mitch Gascoyne, of Toronto, for the link.)

If you're not familiar with MTV's Silent Library, here's the premise, via the network: "A team of six contestants attempts a series of offbeat challenges to win money. The show is set in a library, so the players must remain quiet. The contestants draw cards, and the player who gets the one with skull and crossbones must complete a bizarre task or endure an unusual punishment. If they do so without laughing, the show's host, Zero Kazama, awards them money. But if the team cracks up or is otherwise too loud, they lose."

OK, why am I telling you this? Because six New York Giants players -- Kevin Boss, Chris Snee, Rich Seubert, Dave Tollefson, Shaun O'Hara and Dave Diehl -- appear on the episode that airs Monday, June 28. Below is a preview clip in which O'Hara gets nailed in the face with tennis balls. Believe me, it's much funnier than it sounds.
