PROGRAMMING NOTE: This afternoon's Hot Clicks will be my last until next week. I'm taking off for Chicago tomorrow morning not to watch Derek Jeter play at Wrigley Field. If you have link submissions over the next few days, send them to Andy_Gray@simail.com. If you just can't live without me, follow me on Twitter for Chicago trip updates.

Sylvester Stallone was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame on Sunday. (Rocky pictures can be found here.) While that may seem ridiculous since Stallone is not, you know, a boxer, it's not nearly as ridiculous (we mean "ridiculous" in a good way) as this video remaking Rocky into a musical. (Thanks to Erkki Corpuz, of Los Angeles, for the link.)
Stanley Cup + Craigslist
If you have tickets to tonight's Game 7 between the Canucks and Bruins, you can trade them for a 2005 Mazda or an '80s muscle car. The best deal we saw, however, is this one, that says, "I'm looking to trade my tickets for Game 7 with anyone who can bring me Tim Thomas alive, preferably bound. Not looking to harm him in any way, just looking to hold him captive during Game 7. Will release him once the Canucks evidently hold the Stanley Cup."
Speaking Of The Stanley Cup
Check out this little kid rework the lyrics to Twisted Sister's We're Not Gonna Take It into a Canucks anthem.

This really should be the Commercial of the Day because UFC ring girl, Arianny Celeste has made one of the most memorable ads you'll ever see.
False Advertisement
A Twitter user unearthed this Tiger Woods ad from 1997.
E-Mail Of The Day
John Liezert, of Overland Park, Kan., says. "Jimmy, I read that Carmelo Anthony's PR people won't let him send a thank-you note for a gift. But have you ever heard of a player sending a gift after being invited to a wedding? A few years back, I was 22 and waiting for a heart transplant. I was doing very poorly and wondering if I'd ever get out of the hospital. Then-Chiefs quarterback Trent Green came to the hospital and sat and chatted with me for about an hour, taking pictures and the like. Couldn't have been a nicer guy. It was right before the draft, and he was telling me who the team was looking at drafting. Not long afterward, I received what was basically an artificial heart. A few months after that, I got the transplant. My girlfriend became my fiancee in the meantime and we invited Trent to the wedding, mostly as a way of saying "Hey, I didn't die" and thanks for coming to talk with a huge Chiefs fan. One month later, I was stunned to find a gift card for a hefty amount to one of the stores my wife and I registered, along with a nice card from he and his wife. Trent Green is the man."
Sports Video Of The Day
Golfers Ben Crane, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan made this it's-so-bad-it's-awesome boy band video. Thanks to the million of you who e-mailed it to me.

Commercial Of The Day
Matt Nelson, of Minneapolis, says, "There is an ad running on Minnesota Twins telecasts that needs to be seen through the eyes of Hot Clicks readers." What Matt is trying to say is: "Look at the awful acting job by outfielder Jason Kubel and pitcher Scott Baker."

Trying To Take A Picture Video Of The Day
Anyone with an older relative who struggles with computer use can relate to this video of a couple trying to take a still photo with a webcam. The video has gone viral this week. (Thanks to Sam Choe, of Toronto, for the link.)
