According to today's New York Post, Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has been spending a lot of time with SI Swimsuit model Kate Upton. This piece of news led to the Post showing off its oh-so-clever headline skills.

One story and one link here. First, the story: I've been trying for weeks to get Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on the Hot Clicks Podcast. After not making much progress with the Patriots' public relations staff, I went right to the source and stalked Gronkowski on Twitter. Actually, I told all my followers to tweet him and tell him to do the Hot Clicks Podcast. Gronkowski then sent me a couple of nice messages and said he would do the podcast. However, the Pats PR people stepped in and won't let him do it. They basically told me they didn't want him subjected to non-football questions. So, while New England's PR staff is a buzzkill, Gronkowski is not, as proven in this video in which he Christmas shops for his brothers at (among other places) Victoria's Secret. Oh, and you only need to watch the first 4:40 of that long video. (Thanks to the Boston Herald's @RapSheet for the tip.)

Every few weeks Hot Clicks chats with Coyotes forward and Twitter icon Paul Bissonnette (aka BizNasty2point0) to have him elaborate on some of the more amusing Tweets he recently sent out. (The first installment can be found here.) Here is our latest conversation with BizNasty.
Tweet No. 1: "Just found glow in the dark s--- tickets online. Christmas present to myself. #Twooping in the dark"
SI.com: Did you actually buy the glow-in-the-dark toilet paper?
BizNasty: No, because I got to thinking that $6 for a roll of toilet paper is pretty expensive. Also, I don't know what kind of chemicals are used to make things glow in the dark, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be good for your ass. Normally, I don't think things through that much, but I got a couple of tweets and they got me thinking. I think I made a wise choice.
Tweet No. 2: "Having a bad Sunday guys? Follow @iLikeBabesDaily and cheer up fellas. #HappyHolidays. It's the gift that keeps on giving."
SI.com: What's so great about @ILikeBabesDaily?
BizNasty: Well, I got tweets from people telling me @ILikeGirls is better than @ILikeBabes, but on @ILikeGirls sometimes there are tweets without pictures. @ILikeBabes is strictly pictures. There's no bull----. Everytime you get a tweet from them, it's a hot woman.
Tweet No. 3: "Big news for the Phoenix Coyotes game tomorrow. With the money saucehockey.com and I raised from the homeless t shirt sales, I am able to bring 100 people from @CASS_AZ homeless shelter to our game against the Ducks. Thanks to everyone who supported my cause."
SI.com: How did your charitable endeavor go?
BizNasty: It went well. The folks had a good time. It was families from the shelter. They don't get to do stuff like this normally, so it was great to see them enjoy the experience. I plan on doing this every year. We're in a good situation in Phoenix where I can make that happen because we don't draw very well, so we can get cheap tickets.
Tweet No. 4: "I use to own a pair of GAP carpenter jeans. #4thLineConfessions"
SI.com: GAP carpenter jeans are pretty bad. What was your worst fashion faux pas?
BizNasty: When I was a kid, I thought it was cool to wear really, really baggy pants. I'm talking pants that were so wide, they'd cover my shoe. I went through a phase with those for like a year, and I was a complete loser. I thought, the wider the cooler. It wasn't even bell bottoms because the whole jean was wide. Honestly, I don't know how the f--- my parents let me dress like that. Looking back, I would've kicked my own ass, if I could.
Tweet No. 5: "How hot is that girl from the T-Mobile commercials? Who is she? #Rocket"
SI.com: First off, I'm disappointed you don't read Hot Clicks regularly because we did a big feature on Carly Foulkes in May. But what is it about her that you like so much?
BizNasty: I just like her fair skin. I like a classic beauty. I'm not into fake. A lot of people would assume I'm into girls who are trashy, but it's actually the complete opposite. I would never date a girl who is fake looking. I'd like to meet the T-Mobile girl for a drink and see what she's like. I would definitely go on a date with her, for sure. I heard she had a boyfriend, but if she's willing to go on a date, I don't really care about her boyfriend.
Tweet No. 6: "Finally getting a chance to watch the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Always be prepared. http://pic.twitter.com/8bYNmtKS"
SI.com: Kiehl's? Really? And what did you think of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show?
Bissonnette: I actually don't use Kiehl's [for that act.] It was just a joke. I just thought it would be funny, but I got a little worried after I tweeted it and thought maybe PR would call me. So that's why I followed it up with the line about having a cold and dry legs. I only watched some clips on YouTube. From what I saw, it was awesome. I like how they incorporate new girls every year and try to keep it fresh. Everyone's always intrigued by new girls.
