I Hope Jim Schwartz Doesn't See ThisJim Harbaugh's excitement over the 49ers' victory against Detroit on Sunday didn't just result in a confrontation with Lions coach Jim Schwartz. It also carried over into the locker room, where he acted like San Francisco won a playoff game.
He Must Not Have Liked The Play CallDid Bears quarterback Jay Cutler drop an f-bomb for his offensive coordinator, Mike Martz, last night?
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Monica Spear :: APJulian sends one of the more, um, interesting e-mails I've gotten recently. He says, "Being too cheap to have cable at home, I enjoy any night I stay in a hotel, particularly if the hotel has Telemundo. I was watching Flor Salvaje (Wildflowers) the other night, starring the lovely Monica Spear (a former Miss Venezuela, by the way). Isn't it time to show the world that Venezuela is more than artificially tan dictators with too much oil?" I guess it is, so Monica Spear gets today's LLOD honors.
Nifty National Anthem MomentsRandy, of Buffalo Grove, Ill., says, "Hey, Jimmy, been a twice-a-day Hot Clicks reader for over five years now, love it! Can the Iowa fans get some love on Hot Clicks for the amazing display the stadium organized Saturday during the national anthem?" Yes, they can.
Ryan Carlson, of McMinnville, Ore., says, "Fun video from this Saturday at a Division III game. Before Linfield College played the Pacific University Boxers (Linfield won 49-6), there was heavy technical issues with the PA system during The Star Spangled Banner. There was an awkward moment of silence before the 'Cats took the moment and ran with it with a stirring rendition of the anthem."
E-Mail Of The Day
Blair EckerleBlair Eckerle, of Midlothian, Texas, says, "Hey, Jimmy. I co-host a sports show on Dallascowboys.com (The Lunch Break) and the guys on the show always make fun of me for being ADDICTED to Hot Clicks. You HAVE to post my picture on the site, I'm a huge fan! I'm also a former TCU cheerleader. I went to the ALCS game Saturday night and watched my Rangers clinch a ticket to the World Series for the second year in a row! I held my Hot Clicks sign up all night just for you! Last year you posted pictures of people who made you a sign, and I think mine should be posted this year! Check out the pics and see if you can use one! Thanks, Jimmy! I will brag about it all week on the show if you get me on the site."
Sports Video Of The DayGranted, this would be even better if the Lions had won yesterday, but you will still LOL if you watch this "tribute" to Jim Schwartz and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. (Thanks to Lyle Ortega, of Detroit, for the video.)
Michael Jackson Impersonator Of The DayThis is Kentucky women's basketball coach Matthew Mitchell performing at Midnight Madness last Friday. (Thanks to Gary D. Orr, of Louisville, Ky., for the video.)
