A reader who asked not to be named sent in the following e-mail yesterday afternoon: "Hot Clicks reader every day and I hope to one day make your page! Last night in my men's league softball game, an unlikely player happened to be on the other team. It was Carlos Zambrano. I would think the Cubs would not be too happy about this! Don't worry, he didn't try to kick anyone's ass on his team, either. If you want a pic from the game, let me know."

So I asked for the picture and some details. Here's what I got.

"He played left field every other inning and made sure to use his opposite throwing arm so he wouldn't screw anything up. He popped up twice and hit one out of the stadium another time. Super friendly guy. He even offered to sign autographs for everyone after the game. Dude looks in shape, at least 20-30 lbs lighter."

Say Cheese!

Throughout the week, I've fielded many e-mails from readers who were upset that Bar Refaeli was not in the 2011 SI Swimsuit edition. This happened a couple of years ago with Marisa Miller. The Swimsuit Issue, however, is like anything elsein life, where all good things must come to end. All you can do now is enjoy Refaeli's past work.

What is the best sports-related comedy routine of all time?

Your Opinion Is Needed

Jimmy Kimmel hit a home run with a sketch from his post-Oscar show last year called Handsome Men's Club. Kimmel is producing another sketch for this year's post-Oscar show, but this one will involve him getting some of your favorite women, including Minka Kelly, in shape. I've heard the skit involves another woman who's a big hit with Hot Clicks Nation, but that's all I'm allowed to say right now.
