I'm not going to sit here and try to trick you into thinking I know much about Euro 2012. I do know that it started today and fans seems to be in rare form already, as proven here and here.
Minor League Promotion Of The DayIn terms of value, this is the greatest thing ever. In terms of asking for trouble, this takes the cake. If you buy a ticket to tonight's Triple-A Tucson Padres game for $15, you get EIGHT free drinks. Options include beer, margaritas, wine, soda and water. Let me repeat: Options include beer, margaritas and wine. And you get EIGHT of them. For free. Good luck to the security staff at that game. (Thanks to Matt C., of Tucson, Ari., for the link.)
Well PlayedWe told you in Thursday's A.M. Hot Clicks that Charlie Sheen had a fit after being denied re-entry (thanks to a smoke break) to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final in Los Angeles. The Devils have now invited the controversial actor to Game 5 Saturday night, and even offered him a smoking balcony.
Lovely Lady Of The Day

NastyIf you want to see what can happen to an athlete over time, check out this piece on 38-year-old Twins infielder Jamey Carroll, who has one of the gnarliest hands you'll ever see.
Found: Missing A LegOne of the best things about my job is when I get to write a sentence like this: Here's a shrimp boat captain who found a prosthetic leg with a University of Kentucky logo on it.
Sports Video Of The DayI had a chance to watch Nick Swisher shoot a Head & Shoulders commerical at the MLB Fan Cave Thursday. The Yankes outfielder was kind enough to give Hot Clicks a couple of minutes of his time. Even if you hate the Bombers, and I know many of you do, you may be amused by this rapid-fire interview in which Swisher reveals what he said to the fan who ran on the field and fist-bumped him last weekend, explains why he doesn't want his wife to read 50 Shades of Grey and tells us which teammate has the worst walk-up music.
Music Video Of The DayThis "tribute" to the Miami Heat is pretty creative.
Call Me Maybe Video Of The DayI know, I know. You told me you only wanted me to post these videos if they featured a cheerleading squad, like this one. However, I couldn't pass up one starring the song's singer, Carly Rae Jespen, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots.
