PROGRAMMING NOTE: This is my last Clicks until early next week. I'm off to Chicago tomorrow morning not to watch Derek Jeter get his 3,000th hit 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.
No offensive to Steelers defensive lineman Brett Keisel, but does he really have the kind of face you'd want immortalized on one of your body parts? For this Steelers fan, the answer was yes.

E-Mail Of The DayReader Mike Corry says, "Hey, Jimmy. Keep up the good work! Figured I would send this feel-good story to you to perhaps post and make your readers aware of. Two friends of mine (Kevin Mincio and Matt Sauri) are cycling across America in honor of a fallen soldier named Jesse Williams, who was killed in Iraq in 2007. They are six days into the adventure that started in Santa Rosa, California at Jesse's grave on what would have been his 30th birthday. The journey will end when they arrive at Ground Zero on the 10th anniversary of the attacks on America. Ninety-five days, 4,200 miles, and one goal: to raise money and awareness for families of the fallen in honor of Jesse Williams. My freinds are currently in Nevada and blogging throughout the trip. More info can be found here. Lastly, Kevin Mincio's story is quite amazing. He left a Wall Street job after witnessing the Towers fall and joined the Army. ABC News did a feature on him last fall, which can be found here. I'd appreciate if you can post. I want to spread the word and raise some money for a great cause!"
Audio Book Video Of The DayThere's a children's book (yes, a children's book) out called Go the F**k to Sleep. Actor Samuel L. Jackson handled the duties for the audio book, and below is a clip. I have to warn you: There are 5,392 F-bombs in it. (Thanks to Dallis Anderson, of Oakland, Tony Garcia, of Chicago and Jimmy N., of New York City, for the link.)
