With the World Cup down to the final four, we can now add Enrique Iglesias to the list of people making bold promises if their team wins. The singer has stated he will water ski naked if Spain wins the tournament. Unfortunately, there has been no word on whether his longtime girlfriend, Anna Kournikova, will join him.
Money Makers
With NBA owners doling out money almost as much as Mel Gibson throws around slurs, BlackSportsOnline.com looks at the top 25 career salaries in the league's history. The most amazing thing about the list: Michael Jordan is not on it.
Longest TD You'll Ever See
It's going to be 100 degrees in New York City today, so how about some ... football? Check out the 125-yard field-goal return for a touchdown that the Montreal Alouettes' Tim Maypray pulled off last week. And if you need more of a football fix, The Hazean has started its annual Best Fantasy Football Team Name Contest.

The picture above of Cristiano Ronaldo was taken yesterday when he left a New York City restaurant after having lunch. I'm only posting it because it was 98 degrees here yesterday and he's wearing jeans. Anyway, I digress. On Saturday, Ronaldo was frolicking in the pool with SI Swimsuit model Irina Shayk. Shortly before that, he announced on Facebook that he had just become a father, and reports say he used a surrogate.
Follow-Up Item, No. 1
Last week, Hot Clicks linked to video of a Yankees fan getting hit in the face with a ball that bounced into the stands while he was on his cell phone. Here's some background info on the incident from Ken Buonocore, of Conshohocken, Pa. "The guy who got hit in the face at the Yankees game was actually sitting in my seats (he bought the tickets off me). I e-mailed him about it and this was his response: 'Awesome dude. I was going to send you an e-mail and let you know that it was me. Those seats were the best. I'm getting constant IMs, e-mails, phone calls from friends, co-workers and family. And taking a lot of crap from a lot of folks. And yes, I am an Internet sensation. The sad part is, and you would appreciate this since they are your seats, that I saw the ball coming, and just about the time it hit the ground was when I knew it was gonna hop the wall. I started to raise my right hand because I knew it was hopping the wall. I should've had my hand over a little further, but didn't gauge the slice on the ball properly. Once it hit the ground, you can't see it, just know it is coming. I tried to move my hand to grab it once it came back into view. No luck. The worst part is that I didn't even have anyone on the freakin' phone. I had dropped my call and was dialing back from between innings. I never make calls during all the hockey and baseball games I go to. Problem was that [Rob] Johnson hit the first freakin' pitch of the inning. I heard it, picked it up and didn't have a chance. Love to sit there again though. Have a great laugh like everyone else.' "

Moral of the story? Don't think about picking up your cell phone at a game if you have AT&T because the constant dropped calls will burn you.

Follow-Up Item, No. 2
Speaking of AT&T and its dropped calls, last week Hot Clicks posted a brilliant and hilarious video that summed up the mentality of people obsessed with iPhones. And now, in what is one of the biggest travesties ever, the guy who posted that tremendous video -- who happens to be a phone salesman -- may get fired from his job. How can someone who provided us with something so funny lose his job? I'm praying this doesn't happen. (Thanks to Curt, of Kansas City, for the tip.)
Worthwhile Cause
Over the next three months, Hot Clicks reader Chris Lomen is going to roller-blade across America to raise money to rebuild schools in Haiti. The goal of the project, called Rolling to Rebuild, is to raise $100,000, which would be enough to rebuild 8-10 schools.

Here's a song, done to the tune of Styx's Mr. Roboto, about Joey Votto's All-Star snub.

Bad Friend Video Of The Day
Minnesota Twins telecasts feature a gimmick called "Circle Me, Bert," in which the camera pans to various fans and color man Bert Blyleven circles them with the telestrator. This happened the other night during the segment. (Thanks to Joe, of Minnesota, for the link.)
