Denver Nuggets forward Chris "The Birdman" Andersen is known for his numerous tattoos and constantly changing appearance. There is even a blog dedicated to him. On Sunday, he featured another new look for charity.
Speaking Of Tiger, Sort Of...Jimmy, of Pasadena, Calif., alerts us that in his retirement, A.C. Green is now hawking pepper spray. But in a truly ironic twist, the name of the pepper spray is "Tiger Light." I bet some of those mistresses... ah, I'm not even gonna go there.
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Nicky Whelean :: Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty ImagesI have all the episodes of Scrubs from this season sitting on my TiVo but haven't caught any yet. Based on the heads up by Jon, of Texas, I need to do so fast. He says, "Jimmy, I've been a fan of Hot Clicks for the last few months and think you are doing a great job with now having to do two Hot Clicks in a day. Anyways, I got a suggestion for a girl that deserves it. I've watched the new season of Scrubs and it has a new character that plays an Australian med student. Her name is Nicky Whelan. Check out her pictures. With the Aussie accent and her looks, you will be a fan (if you already haven't been)."

E-Mail Of The DayJames McAvoy, of South Bend, Ind., says, "Hey, Jimmy. I'm a big fan of Hot Clicks. I'm not sure if this will fit into your column at all today but I just had to share my incredible misfortune with Hot Clicks Nation. As you know, it's the first week of fantasy football playoffs for a lot of people. I'm sure I'm not the only person that suffered a tough loss this week, but I'm willing to bet I take the cake for the most shocking/controversial/downright absurd loss in the playoffs so far.
To make a long story short, I was down about three points going into the 49ers final drive Monday night. I took the lead by .1 point on the shovel pass by Alex Smith to Glen Coffee after a false start on third-and-short with just over 2 minutes left (a pass that should have never even taken place as the 49ers were lined up to run before the penalty). Needless to say I was living on cloud nine. As the 49ers ran out the clock, I was holding my breath hoping Alex Smith would not fumble the snap. When he took the final knee, I was ecstatic. UNTIL... my live Stattracker updated and I had points deducted for negative rushing yards by Alex Smith on his kneeldowns and I lost by .2 points. Are you kidding me!?!?!? Kneeling shouldn't affect fantasy stats! How can he (and more importantly I) be punished for running out the clock!?!?!? Anyways, just had to share my story. I am a diehard Buffalo Bills fan, so I am no stranger to shocking losses, but it's unfortunate no less. Keep up the good work!"What a dagger for James. But this allows me to get the opinion of Hot Clicks Nation on a very important topic. My good buddy Diesel and I have argued for years now about how much of fantasy football success is luck. I say it's all luck. All might be a slight exaggeration. But I'd say, if a person has basic NFL knowledge -- you know, Peyton Manning is better than Jake Delhomme and that Chris Johnson is better than Brandon Jacobs -- the rest is determined by injuries, NFL matchups and your opponent that week, which is all luck. Diesel says while the playoffs are a crapshoot, regular season fantasy success is only 25 percent luck. What is your take?

Music Video Of The DayThis very catchy tune was written for TCU and its fans -- and pretty much anyone who hates the BCS. It's titled BCS SUX. (Thanks to Anton, of New York, and Todd Scott, of Troy, Ala., for the link.)
Ridiculous Product Of The DayHonestly, these commercials and products just get more and more absurd. I wouldn't even be friends with someone who bought and/or wore this.
