There's been a lot made of NFL celebrations recently. On the Friday after Thanksgiving, Hot Clicks posted the 10 most memorable celebrations of the season. The following Sunday, Stevie Johnson celebrated a touchdown against the Jets by mocking Plaxico Burress' self-inflicted gunshot. Later than evening, Bob Costas got all preachy and delivered a sermon on knuckleheads who have the audacity to celebrate on the field. That brings us to yesterday. Here's how Johnson celebrated a late touchdown against the Titans. And here's 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith with the best celebration of the day after sacking Rams quarterback A.J. Feeley.
College Football Round UpSaturday was all about LSU cornerback and return man Tyrann Mathieu. He generated controversy with this touchdown by -- it appears -- handing the ball to the ref a little to early. Then he electrified with this punt return. ... The Big Ten title game between Michigan State and Wisconsin was all about Gus Johnson. ... And this awful ending. ... Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy busted out some impressive dance moves after his team blew out Oklahoma.

Izabel Goulart :: SILucas, of Akron, Ohio, says, "Hey, Jimmy, I've been reading hot clicks since my sophomore year of college everyday both the AM and PM editions. I even have gotten a majority of my friends to check it out on a daily basis. I came across a pretty funny Tim Tebow video. Also, my roommate Troy, who now checks Hot Clicks out everyday, would like to see Izabel Goulart featured." Tebow video + loyal readers = photo request granted.
He's BaaaackWell, that might be a bit of an overstatement, but Tiger Woods did win his first tournament in two years yesterday, taking the Chevron World Challenge. ESPN.com used an interesting headline for this story yesterday. (Thanks to Jack, of Chicago, for the link.)Meanwhile, one fan was so excited by Tiger's strong play, he passed on screaming "GET IN THE HOLE!" and went with this. (Thanks to Adam, of Wisconsin, and Jordan C., of Nashville, Ill., for the video.)
They've Had EnoughIt appears Nickelback is tired of taking a beating from the sports world. As Hot Clicks told you, Detroit fans petitioned (unsuccessfully) to get the band removed from performing at halftime of the Lions game on Thanksgiving. Now, the group is embroiled in a feud with Braves reliever Peter Moylan.

Drunken Guy Dancing At Wedding Video Of The DayIn Friday's A.M. Hot Clicks, I posted a video of a guy dancing at a wedding to Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up. At the time it had 345 views. Now it has more than 60,000. It's time to work our magic again, because Paul, of Alameda, Calif., has found ANOTHER video of that dude (Drunken Tom) getting down at that wedding. This time, it's to Billy Joel's Uptown Girl.
