Hot Clicks

Barry's Been Busy

From "Paris Hilton was all over San Francisco Giants' baseball star Barry Zito at the grand opening of MyHouse, a new Hollywood nightspot. Whether it was drinking, hugging, whispering, laughing or holding hands, the two were focused only on each other -- and Hilton looked really happy, a clubgoer tells us." But would Paris be happy to see this video of Zito, in which he's driving around with a bunch of women -- including two who get, um intimate, with each other? This has to get Zito on this list of the 20 athletes fans should want to hang out with, no?

Contest Time

The folks at Pepsi want to give a Hot Clicks reader -- preferably one who is either going to or hosting a Super Bowl party -- an Ultimate Super Bowl Party Pack, which is valued at $250. Included in the pack is 1 football, 1 beverage pail, 1 snack helmet, 2 key chains, 2 hats, 2 T-shirts, 5 Pepsi 24 pack coupons and 5 Frito Lay coupons. Here's the contest. You need to guess the total number of points that will be scored Sunday in the Eagles-Cardinals game and Ravens-Steelers game. I don't need the score of each game. Just the total number of combined points of the four teams. As a tiebreaker, you need to guess the total number of passing yards for Kurt Warner. So, e-mail your full name and full address along with your total points guess and total Warner passing yards guess to Please put "Contest" in the subject line and only enter once.

Top 50 Announcers

Except for a list ranking the top 50 Victoria's Secret models, I can't think of another topic that would generate as much controversy as the "Top 50 Broadcasters of All Time," which was just put out by the American Sportscasters Association. Obviously, everyone will have some critiques and issues with the list. Here are some of mine: Marv Albert should be WAY higher than 17. Brent Musburger should be higher than 44 just based on the fact that he always references the betting lines. Where the hell is Bill Raftery? Lastly, I've stated before that I love the guy, but Chris Berman at 35 will piss A LOT of people off.

E-Mail Of The Day

Since I mentioned the top 50 Victoria's Secret models from yesterday's Clicks, I thought I'd share this e-mail from Scott, of, Nashville, who seemed to closely examine the photo of Laetitia Casta: "Jimmy, loved the pictures of Laetitia. However, is it just me or does the picture on the left show the largest belly button I have ever seen?" This is now the second belly button controversy to hit Hot Clicks.

Lots Of LeBron News
LeBron James :: AP

Buckethead has released two songs to celebrate LeBron James' recent birthday. You can hear the tunes, and see the singer wearing a KFC bucket on his head, here. Meanwhile, in his spare time, King James has been giving Cleveland Browns fans something to salivate over. Lastly, James appears on the February cover of GQ. Speaking of magazine covers, has a look back at the sexiest ones of 2008.

Zero Chance For Two Sixes

From Erin Andrews not having her picture appear in any sports blogs for an entire 24 period to Will Ferrell's Semi-Pro getting a Best Picture nomination, is listing all the things that are less likely to happen than an all-No. 6 seed Super Bowl.

Sports Video Of The Day

Here's a solid hockey fight between the Corpus Christi Ice Rays and the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs. But that's not the main reason for posting this. The real reason is the play-by-play man. The dude is AWESOME. He makes Gus Johnson seem comatose. (Thanks to Jonathan, of San Francisco, for the link.)

American Idol Video Of The Day

Obviously, the highlight of last night's American Idol season premiere was "Bikini Girl." But for pure comedy, nothing can top Ryan Seacrest trying to high five contestant Scott MacIntyre -- who just happens to be blind. On a side note, American Idol takes all their clips off of YouTube pretty quickly, so don't e-mail me if the video is no longer here. (Thanks to Ron C., of Seattle, for the link.)

Uncle Jay Video Of The Day

I'm not posting this for the politics, but for the impressive creativity. You won't find a better recap of 2008 anywhere else. (Thanks to James, of Syracuse, N.Y., for the link.)
