Earlier today, I strolled by the cubical of co-worker Paul Forrester, who handles SI.com's fantasy section, and noticed a CD on his desk: Yes, Dwight Howard has released a CD titled Shoot for the Stars, where he and a bunch of young children sing songs such as ABC, U Can't Touch This, Shout and Whoomp There It Is. I immediately had Forrester play the CD and, well, let's just say there were many laughs in the SI.com office. Now, since kids are involved here, I don't want to be harsh, like this reviewer. But you can listen to samples of each song and make your own opinion.
A couple of weeks ago, Hot Clicks featured a San Francisco Giants theme song done to the tune of Journey's iconic hit, Don't Stop Believin'. In the interest of equal time, here is a new Phillies theme song, Phightins Up, a remix of Bottoms Up by Trey Songz. (Thanks to Matt McGowan, of Downingtown, Pa., for the video.)

This was one of the most difficult decisions I've ever had to make. Today is Kim Kardashian's 30th birthday, and since she's a Hot Clicks staple (for good reason, proven here, here and here), she was under strong consideration. There is also a ton of controversy about this photoshoot that a couple of the women from Glee did for GQ, so they were in the running. Also, Candice Swanepoelcontinues to work hard at her modeling, so I thought about her giving her a repeat honor. But at the end of the day, when Adriana Lima models a $2 million bra, you simply can't ignore it.

Since I've written about the show many times, I've received several e-mails and Tweets today asking my thoughts on this report that former porn star Jenna Jameson may join the Broadway hit show Rock of Ages. Here's the weird part of the story, in my opinion. The role Jameson would take over is currently played the woman who sings at the 3:35 mark of this clip. Somehow, I don't see her pulling it off.
