This is the mobile alert sent out last night by the Dallas Fox TV affiliate, KDFW. Rangers fans should have known the second they got it that their team was doomed. (Thanks to @keitos_way for sending me the pic and @KatyLou_Martin for posting it on Twitter.)

I said this on Twitter last night and I'll say it here: I know many sports fans have issues with Fox play-by-play man Joe Buck (although, more members of Hot Clicks Nation would rather muteChris Berman and Dick Vitale.) Regardless of how you feel about Buck, though, you have to think it's pretty cool that he used the same call of David Freese's home run in Game 6 of the World Series that his father, Jack Buck, used on Kirby Puckett's home run in Game 6 of the World Series 20 years ago.

Give Credit Where Credit Is Due

The dude who pounced on David Freese's game-winning home run ball in center field got to meet the hero of the game afterward. And he brought a friend along... who was wearing a Cubs shirt. ... How did Texas catcher Mike Napoli stay in the game after his ankle bent like this? ... The sign of the night came from a lovely woman who will now be the affection of men everywhere.

Eddy, of San Francisco, says, "Jimmy, love Hot Clicks, hate the Jets. Yet I'll be sporting a Jets varsity jacket all night Saturday. Why, you wonder? Because I'm dressing up as Kevin Arnold from the Wonder Years for Halloween, and the lass I'll be with for the night is going as Winnie Cooper. Who cares what happened to Fred Savage, but holy smokeshow were the years good to Winnie! In honor of a Halloween costume gone right, and the treasured pasttime of the Wonder Years, I think you should consider grown up Winnie for today's Hot Clicks."

It would be tough for me to pass up a request from someone who's dressing up as Kevin Arnold for Halloween. It would be doubly tough for me to deny someone who used the word "lass" in an e-mail. I'm going to give Eddy this Danica McKellar gallery and this one on the condition that he e-mails me a photo next week of him and his lass in their costume.

In Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks, we told you about the new craze sweeping the nation -- Tebowing. I've decided to fully embrace the craze, and so has the almighty Tim Tebow. The Broncos quarterback actually acknowledged this trend, gave it his oh-so-necessary stamp of approval, and Tweeted out some pictures of people Tebowing, including teammate, Von Miller.

In Thursday's all-reader e-mail edition of Hot Clicks, Ladd, of Chi Town, wanted help finding a video of Charles Barkley highlights set to Scandal's The Warrior. About a million of you e-mailed me the link, and some of you provided additional information. For example, It's Your Boy Dub, of Norfolk, Va., said, "Jimmy, my man, I can tell you right off the bat the name of this video because my homey Drew and I have watched it so many times over the years that the tape is almost ruined. It is called NBA Superstars and through the magic of YouTube, you can find a ton of the clips form the video. Some of the songs for various players included, Michael Jordan -- Take My Breath Away; Barkley -- The Warrior; Magic Johnson -- Control by Janet Jackson; Larry Bird -- Small Town. The greatest video is the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar one with the song I'm So Happy, which Ladd will certainly remember."
