Doings Down Under
The Australian Open (where a burlesque show is part of the tournament's official entertainment) kicked off yesterday, so, naturally, Maxim.com looks at the hottest women of tennis while Pop Crunch ranks the 50 hottest women in the sport's history. But better than those two items is this "tennis" commercial sent in by Jose Hurtado, of Alief, Texas. And even though she hasn't played tennis in ages, Anna Kournikova can still cause a stir. There are rumblings that she and Enrique Iglesias are expecting.
There were 1,496 entries in the Hot Clicks Pepsi Super Bowl Party Pack contest, with 21 people nailing Sunday's total points (94). However, the person who came the closest to Kurt Warner's passing total was Chris Ferguson of Overland Park, Kan. Here's another chance to win some prizes -- if you watched last week's episode of Friday Night Lights. Judging by my e-mails, many of you did, and some of you actually tuned in for the first time, which makes me very happy. It seems the overwhelmingly positive publicity helped the show in the ratings, too. Now, onto the contest. The first person to e-mail me the correct answers to these four question will win Scene It for Xbox 360, a 2009 SI Swimsuit calendar and I will let you choose the woman to lead off Hot Clicks one day next week. Here we go:
1) How did Coach Taylor describe the relationship between Riggins and Saracen during his press conference?
UPDATE: 10:32 a.m.: That did not take long. Colby, of Dallas, was the first reader to send in the correct answers -- 1. Tim and Matt are like brothers; 2. Tyra told Landry not to call her "baby"; 3. Buddy said love and football are the two greatest things in the world; 4. Panthers led 38-13 when JD replaced Matt; 5. Minka is absurdly hot.
And He Didn't Have To Watch Friday Night Lights...

Sports Video Of The Day
Brian, of Wellington, Prince Edward Island, sends us this 2007 brawl between the Halifax Wolverines and the Summerside Western Capitals. Things pick up at the 40-second mark, when one player runs (skates) away when he realizes an opponent is coming after him. And then a few seconds later, another player FLIES -- yes -- FLIES into the stands.
