I use that headline every year at this time. Anyway, even though the state of the NFL is in complete disarray right now because the greedy owners want more money, the draft is still taking place Thursday night. As a warm-up to the event, check out this gallery of historic photos from the NFL Draft. Yes, there is a picture of O.J. Simpson with Al Cowlings. And, yes, former commissioner Pete Rozelle used to write the selections on a chalkboard.
Is There A Draft In Here?

In today's A.M. Hot Clicks, I posted a gif of Bulls center Carlos Boozer missing badly on a high-five attempt. Sports Grid follows up with this look at seven of the best missed high fives.

Melissa Satta has been a Hot Clicks favorite since appearing in the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. (She was part of a section that featured soccer WAGs.) Unfortunately, Harvey, of Miami, tells us Satta is no longer a soccer WAG. And her boyfriend, Christian Vieri, didn't even have the decency to break up with her in person. I ran this article through Google Translate (so excuse the choppy language) and here's what it said: "Indeed, he reportedly dropped (like an old sock) the lovely Melissa Satta (25 years) ... after 5 years. At first I thought it was a bad joke ... I was in New York for work when I heard the news. Even though I received several text messages, I could not believe it. Until I read the press release in which he revealed things I did was not even aware. I burst into tears in front of my computer." Obviously, this is a tragedy and Hot Clicks will do its part to cheer up Satta by making her today's LLOD.

Now This Is a Birthday Present
This commercial (which you're not supposed to realize is a commercial) contains strong language, but it's not really strong language because Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari isn't saying what you think he's saying because it's really a trick to make the ad go viral. Got it?
