Pat Knight, son of Bobby Knight, coach of Lamar University and someone clearly in need of decaf, went on a lengthy, way over the top rant last night, ripping his players to shreds for their performance in a 62-52 loss to Steven F. Austin.
Wisconsinites Stick Together
Two things about the Ryan Braun decision that came down yesterday. First, 16-year-old blogger Curt Hogg actually reported on Feb. 14 that Braun's suspension would be overtuned because of the slugger's sample was mishandled. Pretty impressive.

Second, who was the happiest person after news broke that Ryan Braun would not be suspended for 50 days? It had to be Aaron Rodgers. The Packers quarterback came out of the Twitter gate with a one-word Tweet ("#exonerated"), then he ripped MLB and ESPN, ("MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with. Truth will set u free #exonerated"). Then he got all lawyery ("When its guilty until proven innocent, all u need are the facts. #howsthecrowmlb #exonerated"), and then basically did the equivalent of a stand-up comic who tells his last joke and throws the mic on the floor before walking off stage ("I'll let my buddy take it from here. All u idiots talking about technicality open up for some crow too. See if Espn gets pressured not to let the people hear the truth. Should get interesting. #exonerated #shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh").

You know that the star of Wanderlust (out in theaters today) is Jennifer Aniston. However, actress Malin Akerman also appears in the movie, and she shouldn't be overlooked.
Love These Two
I had video from these two kids, who ask offbeat questions to Knicks players, in Hot Clicks once before. But since they are the best interviewers in sports media, I have to feature them again.

"Manning to Miami" billboards are now up in the Sunshine State.
The Hot Clicks Podcast
Comedians Artie Lange and Nick DiPaolo, who currently host The Nick and Artie Show heard on NickAndArtie.com, iTunes and XM Channel 165, joined me for a lengthy show in which we discusses sports (Jeremy Lin, Joe Buck, gambling), comedy and much more. Artie also discussed his relationship with Howard Stern, his battle to stay sober and reminisced about his time on the Stern Show. I'm not going to bait-and-switch you, so I'll tell you now that while the Stern Show is brought up throughout the entire podcast, the meat of the Stern Show discussion starts at the 46-minute mark. Also, and this shouldn't come as a surprise, there is adult language used, so be warned. You can listen to the podcast below or download it on iTunes or download it to an mp3 player.
