As you guys know, I'm sorta into Twitter (follow me!). I've been following Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson (@str8edgeracer) for about a year and always found him to be entertaining and interesting. After reading his recent Tweets about his love of Lost and SI Swimsuit model Irina Shayk, I asked Wilson (via some Twitter stalking) if he would do a Q&A for Hot Clicks and he said yes. It turned out to be a long conversation about baseball, Twitter, TV shows, swimsuit models and much more.

King Talks To King James
LeBron James, Larry King :: CNNLeBron James taped an interview with Larry King yesterday that will air on CNN this Friday. One key exchange was the following:
King: You haven't made a decision yet, is that correct?
King: OK. Would you say, all things being equal, you're close?
James: I'm far from close.
King: Far from close?
James: Yes. I don't -- I don't -- honestly, I haven't -- because July is still a month away, less than a month away. So I haven't -- I haven't began to, you know -- I've thought about it, but I haven't began to strategize exactly.
