Each Friday's P.M. Hot Clicks during the football season will feature one celebrity/athlete/sportscaster/famous person and I going head to head with the week's NFL picks. If the celeb picks more games correctly, he or she will get to write a Hot Clicks entry about the sports topic of their choosing and they can plug their Web site, Twitter feed, etc. However, if I pick more games correctly, that celebrity has to Tweet out the link to Hot Clicks and give me a mention. So, if you're a famous person or PR person reading Hot Clicks, e-mail me and get involved. Also, I may have a Hot Clicks reader do the picks for me each week after we get this launched, so I'll keep you posted on that. And, yes, I know it's bush league to just pick games straight up without the spread, but I had to do it this way to keep things easy and not eliminate any NFL players from having the chance to participate. That leads me to the first contestant. Since it's the first week of the season, I wanted to start with an NFL player, and who better than Redskins tight end Chris Cooley?

Chris Cooley's Picks: N.Y. Giants, Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver, Indianapolis, Miami, Chicago, Tennessee, New England, Arizona, San Francisco, Green Bay, Washington, N.Y. Jets, San Diego

Jimmy's Picks: N.Y. Giants, Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Miami, Detroit, Tennessee, New England, St. Louis, San Francisco, Green Bay, Dallas, Baltimore, San Diego

Speaking Of Contests...
Each week I'll be participating in's Fantasy Football Championship league, which is open to everyone. You get to set a different lineup each week, and I'm going to have one of my Twitter followers do it for me. A trip to Vegas is on the line, so you guys need to step up.

Lovely Lady Of The Day
Nawal Ayoub Valderrama ::
And Hot Clicks Nation comes through yet again. In today's A.M. Clicks, I asked about the identity of the mystery woman in a provocative video with Raptors center Andrea Bargnani. Mike Bendel, of Glen Allen, Va., Leo, of Toronto, and Jim Sanders, of Forney, Texas, provided the information, saying the woman in question is Nawal Ayoub Valderrama, Bargnani's Colombian girlfriend. She's also today's LLOD.

Sports Video Of The Day
Saturday is the 25th anniversary of Pete Rose breaking Ty Cobb's all-time hits record. Here's a new clip from that night in 1985, which features a kid saying his ticket cost him 50 cents, cheesy, tight '80s clothing and Jerry Springer. (Thanks to Rick, of Houston, for the video.)

911 Video Of The Day
Fortunately, Tom Brady came away from his car accident yesterday without any injuries. And that means we can now have a good laugh at the "911 call." (Thanks to Andy Preisendanz, of Vestal, N.Y., for the video.)

Music Video Of The Day
Thursday's P.M. Hot Clicks featured an instructional video from Wendy's on how its employees should handle hot drinks. Here's the cold-drinks version.
