Hot Clicks: SI.com's Cheerleader of the Week is a Hurricane
Sasha Vujacic is the No. 1 person on the minds of those who wager on the NBA. When the spread is 7.5 and you heave a last-second three-pointer to get a 100-92 win, well, let's just say some people will be happy, and others, not so much. (Warning: Link contains strong language.)
Everyone's favorite sideline reporter shifts from the sidelines to the ... stage? tonight when she co-hosts the Spelling Bee on ABC. We assume Hot Clicks reader Herc, of Atlanta, will be tuning in, since he sent us this e-mail: "Jimmy, don't have the link yet, but I read on the front page of the living section in the Atlanta Journal Constitution that Erin Andrews (cue the heavenly lights from above and angelic voices) will be reporting from the sidelines of the national spelling bee. Is the spelling bee a sport? Not in my book, but who gives a rip? IT'S ERIN ANDREWS!!!" Yes, who gives a rip. Here is that link Herc is talking about. And here's a piece on a potential problem for the Spelling Bee. Oh, and even more good news on the Andrews front. Next week, we'll be getting a VIDEO interview with her, which really is the only interview to do with her, unless it's this one.
I Love the '80s
From Doug Collins' return to the Yankees being in last place to the upcoming New Kids On the Block tour to a new Indiana Jones movie, Rumors & Rants wonders if we're back in the '80s.
We really, really wanted to avoid mentioning the opening of Sex and the City this weekend, but it can't be done. First, SI.com's Cory McCartney gives us this amusing Ashley Harkleroad vs. Carrie Bradshaw Tale of the Tape. And then BestWeekEver.tv sent us this great piece titled, Field Guide To Your Local Screening Of Sex and the City This Weekend. On a side note, if you are a guy being dragged by your girlfriend/wife to see the flick this weekend, or if you're a girl dragging your boyfriend/husband to see it, and you have a funny story behind the experience (i.e., you end up missing a big game or you lost a bet, etc.) e-mail us with the details and we'll post the best story Monday.
EW.com finishes off its Top 100 list today.

Since we mentioned Sasha Vujacic above, we thought this would be appropriate. (Thanks to Brian Cantrell, of Corona, Calif., for sending us the link.)
We posted this a little late yesterday, so we're giving it a little more run since it's so good. When you're done watching Mariah embarrass herself, check out FanIQ's list of the worst first pitches ever thrown.
