Notice anything unusual in the photo above of Panthers rookie Cam Newton? As you can see, he has no visible tattoos. He doesn't have any non-visible tattoos, either. (That makes sense since he didn't go to Ohio State.) Anyway, the reason I bring his up is because Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has told Newton not to get any tattoos or piercings. Now, unless Newton was going to get something ridiculous and I could feature it in Hot Clicks, this isn't a huge deal. But it does seem like the owner is overstepping his bounds. How do you feel?

Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo hit a game-winning three-run homer against the Mariners yesterday. This link has the TV call, which is ho-hum, and the radio call, which is classic. (Thanks to reader Jordan Harpst for the link.)

Ashley Greene :: AP
I received this press release about the movie A Warrior's Heart, where lacrosse is a central theme. One of the film's stars is Ashley Greene. This seems like a good excuse to feature the beauty.
