Anyone who grew up in the '80s has a soft spot for Alyssa Milano. The Who's the Boss star and Dodgers fanatic has a new sitcom, Romantically Challenged, that debuts tonight on ABC at 9:30 pm. ET. Milano recently took time out to answer five quick questions for Hot Clicks Nation.
SI.com: Everyone knows you are a huge Dodgers fan. What's your prediction for the team this year? What is your biggest concern about them?
Milano: I never make baseball season predictions. Truly, anything can happen in baseball because the season is so damn long. I appreciate every game and just ride the wave. For the last few years, my concern has been our starting rotation and the fact we haven't had a true "ace" for quite some time. Other than that, I'm concerned with the McCourt's and the circus their divorce has turned into.
SI.com: Your new show is called Romantically Challenged. Romantically challenged athletes have been in the news a lot lately. What advice would you give Tiger and Elin Woods?
Milano: Ha! I would tell Tiger not to begin messages to mistresses with "Hi. This is Tiger." In my experience, not THAT many men's first names are Tiger. All kidding aside, I'm the wrong person to be giving advice to the romantically challenged. I'm happily married now, but my journey to find my happily ever after was filled with crazy amounts of angst and strike outs (pun intended). Ultimately though, I feel that everyone is on their own path and no one really knows the inner workings of a relationship, but the two people that are in it. I wish them both well and hope they are taking the steps to heal and grow.
SI.com: You have a clothing line of sports apparel for women. Which team (besides the Dodgers) do you think has the coolest uniform in sports? Which team has the ugliest?
Milano: I love the Yankees uni's. In football, I love the New York Giants colors. In basketball, I like the Celtics uniforms. Hockey, the New York Rangers. I tend to gravitate toward the classic uniforms that haven't changed much through the years. The ugliest uniform had to have been the late '70s-early '80s Pirates uniform with the striped cap! The '80s were just not a good era for fashion in general.
SI.com: You're a big Tweeter. What do you like most about Twitter? Is there anything you don't like about it?
Milano: I love that Twitter can be anything the user makes it. I love that it makes me feel like I am a member of a community and that it gives me a platform to use my voice to inspire positive change. There really isn't anything I don't like about Twitter as a service, although, there are times that I don't like how a user chooses to use the service. I have seen numerous accounts that seem to be used solely to spread hurtful or ignorant views. Luckily, there is a "block" button.
SI.com: What do you think Samantha Micelli is doing today?
Milano: Samantha Micelli owns a baseball team. Duh.
