I often knock MLB for its archaic practice of not making videos on its website embeddable. However, I have to give MLB.com credit for one thing: When there's a big play, they do a nice job of giving you the televison and the local radio calls for each team. This link features those calls of Yankee centerfielder Curtis Granderson's two big catches in New York's win last night. However, Granderson should only get credit for making one outstanding catch since he misplayed the ball on the first one. But I digress. Other MLB highlights from Wednesday that you may want to check out: Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre hit three home runs for the Rangers, Phillies outfielder Ben Francisco blasted a three-run homer for Philadelphia and Arizona first baseman Paul Goldschmidt hit a grand slam for the Diamondbacks. (Make sure you watch the reaction of Brewers pitcher, Shaun Marcum.)
News Story Of The DayA 97-year old man called 911 because he couldn't find his remote, and he had to watch the Brewers game.
Any Bidders?The ball that went through Bill Buckner's legs in the 1986 World Series will go on eBay in a couple of weeks. If you want it, it'll cost you $1 million.
Photo Gallery Of The Day
Marisa Miller :: Raphael Mazzucco/SIESPN has released some of the photos from its "Body Issue," in which they try to convince you that they're "celebrating" the athletic body instead of just titillating readers. Hot Clicks would never lie to you like ESPN does, so we'll readily admit we're not celebrating anything but hotness when we post a photo. So remember, while you're perusing ESPN's "Body Issue" (aka "Our way of posting naked photos by saying 'these are bodies we want,') the Worldwide Leader might have a few athletes posing naked for them, but Hot Clicks has Marisa Miller.
Welcome BackThe Winnipeg Jets make their return to the NHL on Sunday. Here's a song, set to LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem, to celebrate the occasion. (Thanks to Marc H., of Winnipeg, for the link.)
