Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is on quite a roll. Last week, we told you that he wrote a tremendous column in which he retaliated against a former NFL player who ripped him. Today he's back with an offer for new Minnesota quarterback, Donovan McNabb. Kluwe, as you can see above, wears the same number as McNabb. However, he doesn't want cash for the digit. He wants McNabb to mention his band, Tripping Icarus, in at least five press conferences.
You really need to see how this kid reacted when Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett handed him a ball this afternoon.

Today On Twitter
I'm only featuring one Tweet today, because it's a doozy. It comes from Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney, who weighed in on the Patriots acquiring Albert Haynesworth.
Despite Last Week's Poll...
I know you guys said there's too much Yankees in Hot Clicks, but I have to do this. HBO airs "Derek Jeter 3K" tonight at 9 pm ET. Here is an extended trailer. Here is a review from Newsday's Neil Best. And here is Neil Best Tweeting the truth.
Auction Of The Day
Erin Andrews jersey
While in Arizona for the All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game, Erin Andrews got a ton of celebrites and athletes to sign her jersey, which is being auctioned off to to benefit the family of Shannon Stone, the fan who died tragically at a Texas Rangers game just a few days earlier. Among the people who autographed the jersey, including Andrews: Rickey Henderson, Joe Torre, Bernie Williams, Mark Grace, Larry Fitzgerald, Carlos Bocanegra and Kate Upton. For the full list and to bid on the jersey, check out this link. The auction will go on through next week, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going directly to the Memorial Account in Honor of Shannon Stone set up by the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.
The Hot Clicks Podcast
Timberwolves forward and new professional volleyball player Kevin Love recently joined the show. I recommend listening to it so you can hear him talk about how he asked his best friend's girlfriend to his senior prom (without telling his best friend and girlfriend he was going to do so). Listen to it below or download it on iTunes.
