The Hot Clicks Podcast
Redskins tight end Chris Cooley joined me this week for an extremely fun chat. We talked about his choice to win American Idol, his love of pottery, the NFL lockout and his frustration with not having high-speed Internet. Cooley also broke down Maxim's Hot 100 list and revealed that he hadn't heard about the Rashard Mendenhall controversy until I brought it up. Trust me, you'll want to listen to this show, which you can do below or download it on iTunes. (Warning: The podcast contains strong language.)

Sports Video Of The Day
Kyle Tapply, of Dallas, says, "In honor of the Mavs taking a 2-0 lead on the Lakers, can you play the DFW Digs Dirk song? It would be great if we could recognize the best player in the playoffs so far! Plus it's a pretty catchy song! Love you!" I've been writing Hot Clicks for four years now, and this was the first time anyone ever signed off an e-mail with "love you," so I feel like I have to post this. Plus, the Bob Marley-esque song is catchy.
