The Final Word On 2008
The window to look back on 2008 is 99.9 percent of the way shut, but I had to squeeze in these two important links before it closed all the way. CollegeHoops.net covers The Best College Cheerleaders of 2008, while NFL.com gives us the Best NFL Cheerleaders of 2008. (Thanks to Tyler, of Hagerstown, Md., for the link.) Meanwhile, Jeff Wesbecher, of Sidney, Ohio, says "I loved the NFL cheerleaders: Wild Card Edition on SI.com, but how about showing some love for the Cheerleaders for the San Diego Chargers?" Not to be outdone, Pistol Pete, of Roxbury N.J., e-mailed the following this morning: "Watching the Indy-San Diego game Saturday night, every time they cut between plays to a San Diego Cheerleader my jaw dropped, as in WOW. How about some pics from the 'Bolts sideline Enthusiasm Department to provide a winter thaw here in Jersey?" The two cheerleaders above are Marlina and Kylette. To see more of them and the rest of the Charger girls -- and to thaw out -- just check Chargers.com.
Speaking Of The Chargers
Best Bad Guys
Many of you (like me) probably can't wait to see The Wrestler, which is only out in select theatres at the moment. But for now, you'll have to settle for this solid list of 10 of the Greatest Heels from the Golden Age of Wrestling and this look at the Top Five Unscripted Pro-Wrestling Moments.
Mental Floss' 1992 Quarterbacks Quiz begins with this intro: "When Green Bay quarterback Don Majkowski injured his ankle in Week 3 of the 1992 NFL season, backup Brett Favre -- maybe you've heard of him -- stepped in and led the Packers to a come-from-behind win. Favre began his record streak of starts the following week, while Majkowski was banished to the bench and all but forgotten. With Favre on the cusp of retirement (again), let's see how well do you remember some of the other quarterbacks of 1992." This has nothing to do with the quiz, but let's hope Favre isn't just on the cusp of retirement. Let's hope he actually retires this time and stays away. Eric Mangini took the fall -- and rightfully so -- for the Jets collapse, but Favre was just as responsible, if not more responsible. I know it's against the law to say that, but I'm not afraid of getting arrested.
Can't Wait For The Commercials
Versus has come up with an, um, interesting marketing campaign.
Calling All Barbecuers!
How long until Billy Mays does a commercial for this product? (Thanks to William Parker, of Vancouver, for the link.)
Maximize Your Pleasure
A pair of Hot Clicks readers e-mailed me about a couple of Maxim photo shoots they wanted to share. Brandon W., of Washington, says "You need to put up some photos of the mind-blowingly hot Diora Baird, like these." Meanwhile, Vince, of Upland, Calif., writes "Always enjoy the site, love that you recognize the underrated Sarah Chalke and Scrubs. May I present Ms. Susan Ward, underrated actress of Sunset Beach and the movie The In Crowd and Shallow Hal, for your consideration.

Eddie Money Video Of The Day
You can accuse me of posting this clip because a) I'm a big fan of Take Me Home Tonight and/or b) I enjoy rocking out in the car, too. But the real reason is that I'm amazed (and grateful) the driver didn't end up in an accident. The dude is looking at the camera for about 90 percent of the song! (Thanks to Michael Nolan, of Syracuse, N.Y., for the link.)
