Programming Note: Since Christmas is just about here, there will be a few days over the next week when there is just one edition Hot Clicks, but some days you will get two. Tomorrow will be one of the days with one edition. I asked my Twitter followers last night if they'd like Friday's Hot Clicks to be an all-Christmas edition or some sort of "top 50 people to follow on Twitter" list. The answer most given by those greedy bastards was "both." So this version you're reading now will be the last traditional version of Hot Clicks from me for a while. This afternoon will be the Twitter list; tomorrow will be all-Christmas links and videos. Andy Gray will take care of you next week and for a little bit the week after and I'll return on Wed., Jan. 4. Now onto the show... has outdone itself with its Year in Review package. The site has compiled the funniest videos, pictures (such as CBS College Sports saying the man above is Random Dude and not Wally Szczerbiak) and articles from the past 12 months. It's broken down month-by-month for your viewing pleasure.

Monica Apor :: Maxim
Since this is the last traditional version of Hot Clicks that I'm writing for 2011, I decided to look back to see which editions were the most read this year. For some strange reason, the most-read Hot Clicks in 2011 was the first all-reader e-mail feature from July. The second-most read edition was the June 10 edition that featured the Maxim cover of model Monica Apor that you see above. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Since you guys seem to like Apor, here is another gallery of her. (On a side note, the third and fourth most-read editions of Hot Clicks in 2011 featured ... Kate Upton.)
Breakout Star
If you're watching HBO's 24/7: Flyers-Rangers: Road To NHL Winter Classic, you know that Philadelphia's Ilya Bryzgalov has stolen the show. The goaltender was at again last night, comparing beautiful women to huskies and explaining why defensemen are more crazy than goalies.
