Hot Clicks
By Jimmy Traina
Marko Jaric Out-Kicked His Coverage

On Thursday, we kicked off Hot Clicks by linking to a post about athletes who have outkicked their coverage. Several of you, however, weren't happy about one glaring omission. Kent, of Fargo, N.D., wrote "I must vent to someone about this so you get to hear from me. This whole contest became a sham as soon as Marko Jaric was left off the list. The dude is a goblin with no business dating Roseanne Barr, much less one of the hottest women in the world. This is like if they forgot to put Obama on the presidential ballots. It was such an amazing concept and they just ruined it. Please do not stand for this Hot Clicks. You have more pull than I do. Make them fix this! Ok, I'm better now." Not to be outdone, Paul, of Lansing, Mich., wrote "The guy who most 'Out-Kicked his Coverage' is the meat-head/bench warmer who is engaged to Adriana Lima." Now, we understand this is a very serious subject, but there's really no need for name calling. The Max, who made the original post, just made a mistake. It happens. And Jaric is just taking advantage of his status as an athlete. What's that dumb saying about don't hate the player or whatever? Anyway, all we can do is give you links to these photos and this video, although, clicking on those two links will probably make you guys hate Jaric even more.
UPDATE, 11:47 a.m.: The power of the Hot Clicks audience is not to be underestimated. The Max has heard you loud and clear and has made the necessary adjustments.

We thought the video made by Pate Hogan, of New Madrid, Mo., that featured Hot Clicks as a presidential nominee was pretty cool, but then Scott, of Ottawa, played the Erin Andrews card and came up with this gem.
