Hot Clicks: Roselyn Sanchez, WBC, Lauren Thomopson
Baseball is finally in the air. And judging by this clip of Alex Rodriguez's home run yesterday, it's kinda interesting that you don't hear any taunting or bashing of A-Rod. Could it be that fans actually aren't obsessed with steroids, unlike the media? Just a theory. Anyway, before we get to meaningful baseball, we unfortunately have to endure the World Baseball Classic, which begins March 5. Luckily, Hot Clicks has found the only good thing about the WBC -- this feature, which gives you a rundown on players for each team and a female celebrity who may be a fan, such as Roselyn Sanchez, who'll be cheering on Puerto Rico.

Secret To Superman's Success
Dwight Howard continues to be one of sports' best personalities on and off the court. To get some more insight into the Magic star, check out this clip in which he describes his pregame ritual.
The Sporting Muse reveals the top 10 most intimidating players in the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB.
I spent 10 min this morning debating which story from the Sports Pickle to link because the site has three gems up right now. So instead of choosing one between "Report: Alex Rodriguez Linked to Steroids Dealer, Kevin Bacon," "Cavaliers Public Address Announcer Dies of Talcum Powder Lung," and "Hero Pilot Chesley Sullenberger Crashes Plane Into New Yankee Stadium," just go to the main page and check them all out.
Tiger Woods' return isn't the best thing about golf these days. It's the Golf Channel's Lauren Thompson.
First, let's cover the Snuggie knockoffs and Snuggie-like products.
Kevin K., of Pittsburgh, says "It's both sad and hilarious that the first thing I thought of when I saw this video was Extra Mustard.
James, of Germantown, Md., says "Not exactly the Snuggie, but this is almost as good."
Josh, of Spokane, Wash, says "Jimmy, I'm sure you've been flooded with this link, but in the case you haven't, here ya go."
Jason Rocco, of Arlington, Va., says "What could be better than the Snuggie? How about this?"
Now let's cover all the Snuggie Bar Crawls:
Bo Gerhart, of Baltimore, says "Why wait until April for a Snuggie Pub Crawl? There is one in Baltimore on Saturday, Feb. 28. There is a facebook group (Baltimore Snuggies Pub Crawl) that has all the information."
Randy, of Cincinnati, says "In response to the stunning public embrace of the warm and cuddly Snuggie, the SnuggiePubCrawl.com Team is hosting the first-ever Snuggie Pub Crawl in Cleveland, Ohio. Even though it's just a blanket with sleeves, we're sure that you'll enjoy a winter evening spent drinking with friends and the Snuggie."
Dan Kuthy, of Chicago and Fredo, David Crawford and Pete, of New York City, all alerted me to the Snuggie Pub Crawl that's set up for New York City."
Erik, of Chicago, even asked, "Jimmy, just wanted to let you and the other Hot Clicks readers know, there have been more cities added to the Snuggie Pub Crawl. Are you going to venture out for the NYC one?"
And Jason Bowers, of Denver, says "Not sure if you have featured the Snuggie Pub Crawl yet. I hate to contribute to the proliferation of the Snuggie, but I am in if you can help get Erin Andrews involved (Snuggie only, of course.)"
I'm probably going to pass on the NYC Snuggie Pub Crawl because I don't have the Snuggie and I refuse to buy one. They should've sent me one for free after all the promotion I gave them. As for Erin Andrews, why would you want to see her so covered up?

Wait for the slo-mo replay. (Thanks to JK, of New Orleans, for the link.)
Movie Trailer Video Of The Day
The Ferris Bueller's Day Off trailer featured in yesterday's Hot Clicks seemed to be a big hit with you guys, so here's another one, but with a different spin. Instead of a comedy being made into a drama because of the music, here's a drama turned into a comedy. (Thanks to Cory Johnson, of Madison, Wisc., for the link.)
