Bobcats fans could land themselves season tickets for as little as $43 (total, not per game) next season. Granted, Charlotte went 7-59 this year, but this is still cool. The team announced Wednesday that the cost of an upper deck seat will be the number the team gets in the lottery. For example, if they get the No. 1 pick, the tickets will cost $1 per game.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that Bears quarterback Jay Cutlerdoes not like the paparazzi.

Is That Middle Finger Permanently Up?

Hot Clicks Nation has spoken. After saying yesterday afternoon that I would not give Natalia Velez a full week of Lovely Lady of the Day treatment, you guys swiftly went into action. A sampling:

David, of Shawano, Wis.: "Natalia Velez -- hands down the sexiest woman to appear on LLOD. Ante up and make it a two-week appearance by the best ever to appear on LLOD." Craig, of Ebensburg, Pa.: "Natalia Velez is the best thing you have done for me ever. I owe you a HUGE amount of thanks. I STRONGLY URGE you to make her LLOD Thursday, as well. She has earned it." Bob, of Katy, Texas: "Jimmy, you're doing fine. Just remember to pace yourself, keep hydrated, and be sure to continue Natalia Velez daily. You don't want to recreate a week of Natalia because it's already been done? Fine, put her on for two weeks. This is serious business, dude." Michael, of Canton, Ohio: "If there is anything better than Natalia Velez, God kept it for himself. "Adam, of Portland, Ore.: Jimmy, give the faithful some love. Natalia Velez is straight ridiculous. You can recreate magic; I've done it many times. I hear the commoners chanting...'One full week! One full week!'"

I can't ignore the masses. If you want it, it's my duty to give it to you. Natalia Velez gets today's LLOD honors.

After posting video in today's A.M. Hot Clicks of a Predators Ice Girl picking up what I thought was a live catfish, I received this e-mail. "Hey! My name is Taylor, and I'm one of the Ice Girls for the Nashville Predators. Jenna was the lucky girl to pick up the catfish last night. There's been a lot of speculation that the fish was still alive, so I'm here to set the record straight! That fish was absolutely dead. Jenna wiggled that fish in her hands just to be funny. She's from Minnesota -- the ice fishing type -- so I'm sure that catfish didn't faze her! She's a champ!"
