Here's something we've never seen before: In the eighth inning of last night's Red Sox-Rays marathon (Boston won 1-0 in 16 innings), Rays second baseman Sean Rodriguez hit a pop up that shattered a light bulb.
Take This Job And Shove It
The Lake County Fielders are a professional minor league baseball team (North American League) whose claim to fame is that actor Kevin Costner has a small ownership stake. These days they are making headlines because the franchise is a mess. Things are so bad that their play-by-play man, Qumar Zaman recently quit. On the air.
Double Coffee Measure For $5.95?
Hot Clicks reader Todd Lewandowski has sent Tony Romo and Candice Crawford eight dollar wash cloths and Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez a $13 butter dish (and they still haven't sent him a thank-you note). He may have to dip into his wallet again because this is the registry for Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari.
Lovely Lady Of The Day
How stunning is today's Lovely Lady of the Day? OK, OK, I'll explain why there's a picture of a silhouette above. Suggestions for the LLOD are constantly coming into my inbox. Often, though, I can't honor a request because SI.com does not have rights to a certain person's picture, and I have nothing to post in the space above. That all changes today. Going forward, if I don't have access to a person's picture via our photo agencies, I will post the silhouette above and still recognize the deserving requests. I think after seeing today's LLOD, model Isabela Soncini, you'll be on board with this plan.

Sports Video Of The Day
Don't be the negative person who e-mails me to tell me this 3-year-old didn't throw the bean bag from the regulation spot. He's still a damn impressive Corn Hole player. (Thanks to by Jared, of Knoxville, Tenn., for the link.)

Kitten Video Of The Day
Doug, of Spartanburg, S.C., sends in this clip of a cat versus two apples.

Ridiculous Commercial Of The Day
Dave Kerka, of Hudson Ohio, says, "Jimmy, I don't know where to begin with this commercial so I won't even try. All I will tell you is that it aired before the Harry Potter movie I went to see with my daughter this past weekend." Dave has to be kidding, or his movie theater was playing some sort of prank.
