Hot Clicks: Anna Benson, Brett Favre and Nate Robinson's driving problems
Anna Benson :: Walter Iooss Jr./SI
In case Vikings fans are wondering what they'll get out of their old Wrangler-wearin' gunslinger, Funnycrave.com has compiled some of Favre's greatest interceptions. Meanwhile, Jeremy G., of San Diego, sent in this music video wondering whether the Vikings will suck this year, and frankly, it's a pretty catchy tune.
Chris Cooley has long been a Hot Clicks favorite, mostly because he has a good sense of humor and a hot wife, and he gave us one of the most unintentionally funny moments of the last year. But we're going to give props to his brother, Tanner, who runs Chris' awesome blog and has a good-looking wife of his own.
Nate Robinson :: Robert Beck/SI
Nate Robinson was arrested yesterday for driving without a license. Turns out his license was suspended in June for the fifth time in 14 months, quite an impressive number. Even more amazing is Robinson's Twitter feed with messages about the ordeal. At first, he said, "Cops pulled me over cuz my windows were 2 dark (but my windows were down) lol how funny is that." Then, we're guessing he spoke to his agent, who reminded him that an arrest doesn't look too good when you're a free agent looking for a new contract. He soon reversed course and tweeted, "I was irresponsible earlier when I tweeted about being pulled over," and "I apologize to the Knicks, my family and fans" followed up by "I also want to thank the NYPD especially the arresting officer. He was fair and helped process me quickly." So any NBA teams looking for a shoot-first, 5-foot-9 point guard who can't hang onto a driver's license, Robinson is your man.
South African runner Caster Semenya is the newest sensation on the women's track circuit. The only question is whether she's actually a woman or a man.
When I'm not filling in on Hot Clicks, I run SI.com's awesome Vault section. But the real fun is the Vault's Twitter feed, which includes pics of former basketball stars in hot tubs, Magic Johnson as a Michigan State student and baseball players smoking cigarettes in the dugout. If you miss Jimmy, you can see what he's up to (waiting for DirecTV to be installed in his palatial Long Island estate) by following his Twitter feed. And if you're really bored, check out the Hot Clicks Facebook group.
