End Of An Error
The hideous Iowa-Iowa State trophy Hot Clicks covered in Friday's P.M. Hot Clicks? It's gone before it was ever given out. Game organizers say it will be changed.
Bust A Move
If you watched the clip in Monday's P.M. Hot Clicks of ESPN's Bobby Valentine hammering Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro for seven minutes over Castro's lackadaisical play, it's hard to imagine what the analyst would say about this Little Leaguer who spent his time in the outfield dancing while his team was down 20-0.
Lovely Lady Of The Day

Rex, of Columbus, Ohio, says, "Jimmy... Elaine Alden. Carry on." I love e-mails that are short and sweet. I also love them when they suggest a worthy LLOD candidate. Alden, a professional model (according to her Twitter page), however, is more than worthy candidate for today's honors.

Sports Video Of The Day
In today's A.M. Hot Clicks, I posted one of the great videos of all time: former NBA player Rex Chapman doing karaoke to Prince's When Dove Cry. I tweeted the link to Hot Clicks this morning and said "there are no words to describe" the video. Chapman responded, "No words 2 describe it... except 4: awesome, awkward, fabulous, horrid, super, no way, really?, classic, sexy & no he di'ent!" He also sent me the video below with the message, "Prince-jam, in front of wife, kids & cameraman-less camera much harder & more angst ridden than Flip-dunk b4 sellout. #iamidiot" How can you not love this guy? By the way, while watching both videos, notice he went from one pair of ridiculous shorts to another pair of ridiculous shorts.
