Esquire.com gets into the bracket business by asking you to help determine the sexist woman alive. The regions are broken up into Music and Fashion, Television, Movies and Sports. But this isn't any ordinary bracket. Sure, it features many favorites of Hot Clicks Nation -- Blake Lively, Marisa Miller, Brooklyn Decker, Stacy Keibler, Carrie Underwood, Eva Mendes, Erin Andrews, and my future wife pictured above -- but it deserves props for some creative matchups. For example, Megan Fox, an obvious No. 1 seed, faces off against Helen Mirren. Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso (a No. 6 seed) battle the Panamanian Cricket Team (No. 11 seed). And last, but not least, top-seeded Natalie Gulbis is pitted against No. 16. Lane Kiffin. Yes, Lane Kiffin.
Viva Las VegasBefore you ask why I'd feature Minka Kelly for the millionth time instead of one of the women in the tournament who hasn't gotten some Hot Clicks love before, the answer is simple. I leave for Las Vegas tomorrow and my plan is to win a couple of million dollars and never come back to work. So, I'm featuring all my favorites this week. Yesterday, it was Salma Hayek; today it's Minka. As for Sin City, one of the clowns who will be with me works for the New York Daily News and wrote this article last Sunday about what it's like to be in Vegas for March Madness. As he points out, the Venetian and the Palazzo now have "PocketCasino," which allows you to make in-game wagers. Just what I need! I will try to do a video piece on this while I'm there, and hopefully you'll see it in Hot Clicks on Friday. One last thing about Vegas: If you need an edge when filling out brackets, this article tells you not to forget about checking point spreads.

Sports Video Of The DaySteve Nash is back with another humorous video. The only problem with this one is that I'm not sure how much of it I can describe. It sort of has to do with how he makes people uncomfortable by getting too close to them with a certain body part.
