Just In Time For The Holidays
You're probably asking yourself, "Why are there two underwear models at the top of today's Hot Clicks?" Well, we're glad you asked. It's not because we want to mention Victoria's Secret yet again this week. It's because today's lead story actually is about underwear. You see, some guy has gotten his hands on the used -- yes, used -- underwear of Alex Rodriguez, Josh Beckett and Kevin Youkilis. And said guy is selling them on eBay, with the bidding starting at $9.99. We guess Madonna won't be bidding on A-Rod's undergarments. The Yankee slugger has finally spoken out about his relationship with the pop star, and to no one's surprise, Rodriguez offered the standard "we're just friends" line.
In Better Yankees Couple News...
When we heard new Yankees first baseman Nick Swisher interviewed on Mike Francesa's radio show three weeks ago, we thought he came off as a really cool dude who seemed like a total character. So, we immediately texted co-worker Gennaro Filice and told him Swisher was already our second-favorite Yankee (No. 1 is a no-brainer). That was a slight exaggeration because Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada will always hold down the Nos. 2 and 3 spots, respectively, as long as they're on the team. But Swisher did jump into the top five. And now our fondness for him just shot up even more after seeing his model girlfriend.

Music Video Of The Day
Big P., of Tampa, Fla., writes "I wonder how many people have seen or heard of this video. It's probably one of the scariest/ weirdest things ever. Check out the group of young boys near the end. Oh, and the end of the video is terrifying. It's not related to sports, I just think that everyone should know about this before they see another Eddie Murphy movie." Two things. One, we know the video because we watch VH-1 Classic way too much. And two, we don't think Eddie Murphy is the one you should be afraid of in this video.
One More Music Video Of The Day
Ron C., of Seattle, says "You don't have to post this, but if you do, that would be great. I was watching a friends' documentary and Journey's Separate Ways came on and I was inspired to look up the music video. And I love Journey just as much as the next guy in line, but this video could be the worst video ever. Notice that half the time they are playing air instruments and the girl in the video looks like the female version of Ivan Drago. But you gotta love the close ups of Steve Perry." Ron, how did you know that this was one of our all-time favorite videos?
