MLB Draft -- TV and Movie Edition

Where would you draft Mae Mordabito? :: Frank Micelotta/Getty Images
With MLB's first-year draft set to begin today, The Angry T held his own mock draft based on fictional baseball players in movies and TV, and we have to say, did a damn good job. Though we probably would choose Mae Mordabito (a.k.a. -- Madonna) a tad bit earlier, but judging from the above picture, she may have been a distraction to some of the guys on the team.
The Next Erin Andrews
Forget Samantha Steele and Allie LaForce. Arizona softball ace Taryne Mowatt -- whose Wildcats were eliminated from the championship tournament last week -- declared her desire to be a TV sideline reporter. She also would "give anything" to meet Andrews and recommends "an Erin and Taryne duo" to cover the games. OK by us.
University of $$$
Forbes took a look at the 469 Americans who are fortunate enough to call themselves billionaires and which schools produced the most people on the list. As expected, Harvard leads the list with 50, while NYU had the distinction of having five dropouts who went on to become billionaires.

Rose Bowl vs. Lee Corso

Would you pick Lee Corso over the Rose Bowl? :: John Sommers/Icon SMI
As Campus Clicks enters its second year of existence, we only hope we have fans as dedicated as Nelva Deeke of Hubbell, Neb., who won a Home Depot contest where she got to choose between an all-expense paid trip to California for the Rose Bowl or College Gameday hosting a barbecue at her house. And she chose to hang out with Lee Corso and the guys from Gameday.
Duke and Bathrooms
Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium is known to have some of the nation's worst bathrooms, and the men will have to suck it up for another year as the planned restroom renovations have been put on hold. The women, however, will feel like queens with the "high-end portable toilets" the school is importing for the home games. Let's just hope we don't have another Penn State situation on our hands.
