We've got two football games tonight, one with very little meaning (Jets-Bills) and one with a lot of meaning (Oregon State-Oregon). It's been an eventful season for the Ducks. Things started off with running back LeGarrette Blount getting suspended after punching a Boise State player in the season opener. They blew out then-No. 5 USC 47-20 on Halloween night but then lost to Stanford in a 51-42 shootout the following week. Two weeks ago, they kept their Rose Bowl chances alive with a wild 44-41 overtime win against Arizona. Anyway, with the rivals meeting for the 113th time in the Civil War, a writer from The Register Guard decided to walk around the Oregon campus dressed in Oregon State apparel and then walked around the Oregon State campus in Oregon apparel. This was the result.
Lee, of San Diego, says, "Move over, Madden curse, the Gillette curse is the real deal now. Roger Federer's [play] is going down, Thierry Henry will forever be labeled as a cheater to a lot of people for his hand-ball goal against Ireland, Ricky Rubio wimped out and went back to Spain and now Tiger got caught playing around and may have gotten beat up by his wife. The only person safe from this curse (for now) is Jeter. He wins the World Series, is named Sportsman of the Year and most importantly, dates Minka Kelly. Look out, Jeter!" I'm not sure I like Lee's e-mail, but he may be on to something.
Links That Have Been In Hot Clicks But People Keep Sending Me
I'm starting a new feature in Hot Clicks. Since it's tough for a lot of you to check out every single link in every single edition, a couple of times a week I'm going to feature some links that have been in Hot Clicks before, yet people keep e-mailing to me on a regular basis. Two links that have been continually sent to me recently are this video of the hardest-hitting 6-year-old football player and the ad for the Shake Weight -- men's and women's version.
Kevin Humpherys, of Logan, Utah, says, "Last night, the Utah State men's basketball team played BYU and kicked the crap out of them. At the end of the game, the students did the winning team/losing team chant. The video isn't the best quality, but you can get the picture." I've never seen this before and I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I figured I should share it. It starts out slowly, but that winning team/losing team thing is kind of amusing.
Chad Gray, of Lawrenceville, Ill., says, "My best friend lives in Lexington, Ky., and I visit him often. Last time I was down there he introduced me to Mike, who turned out to be one of the funniest people I have ever met. Today I got an e-mail from my friend in Kentucky and I would like to share this. From what I can gather, Mike does this at all UK home games and has quite the following now. Take a look."
