If you're a Hornets fan who watches American Idol, this item is for you! is comparing contestants and judges on AI to members of the New Orleans franchise. Unfortunately for those of us who watch Idol, the show's best-looking female contestant, Kady Malloy (above center) was booted last week, so now we just have the singing to focus on now.

Behind The Video
Russakoff Rules has compiled the Top 10 Sports Team Music Videos of All Time. One of the clips that made the list was that embarrassing/disturbing/funny 1986 Dodgers video that we featured in Hot Clicks a couple of weeks ago. Well, Big League Stew recently caught up with some members of that team and asked them what they were thinking when they made the video.

LENNY DYKSTRA: "Yeah. You got to rest your eyes man, plus it makes you think too much."

Rarified Air -- And Tourney News
We had a long chat yesterday with college hoops writer Luke Winn about the MacBook Air, so we found this story (sent to us by reader Jonathan Lim Davis, Calif.), about a passenger missing his flight because the TSA didn't think the MacBook Air was a real computer, very amusing. Speaking of Winn, his must-read NCAA Tourney Blog launched today on (he played Scrabble with UConn's Hasheem Thabeet.) Also, we've gotten tons of e-mails from people asking if Hot Clicks would be running an NCAA bracket pool. We won't be, but we'll be joining Winn's pool and encourage all of you to do so as well. We'll post more details when we get them.
