Hot Clicks

E-Mail Of The Day

People often ask me what the best part of my job is, with the expectation I'll say "looking for pictures of hot women." But that's not the case. The best part, by far, is all of the funny, unique and creative e-mails I get from you guys every day. But when you combine an amusing e-mail with a hot woman, well, that's just gold. Pat, of Biloxi, Miss., pulled that off this week. He said, "I am a Facebook member and a reader of Hot Clicks every day. So, with my credentials out of the way, I would like to make a suggestion for tomorrow's Hot Clicks. In keeping up with an '80s song matching your leadoff woman of the day [Eds. Note: Monday's Hot Clicks led off with Carolina Hurricanes Storm Squad member Rosanna and Tuesday's Hot Clicks featured Toto's video for Rosanna], how about Johanna Botta from MTV's Real World and the song Joanna by Kool and the Gang? Just don't pay attention to the missing "H" in the song, Johanna Botta is gas and if I remember correctly, never has been featured in Hot Clicks." Here's why this e-mail is brilliant. 1) Johanna has always been a personal favorite, and is ridiculously hot; 2) Johanna has participated in a few of the Real World/Road Rules Challenges/Duels and around here that qualifies as a sports connection because the cast participates in tough physical activities that are more competitive than most mainstream sports; 3) I have no idea what "Johanna Botta is gas" means, but it sounds funny; 4) Johanna sounds NOTHING like Joanna. Anyway, since Johanna, for some unknown reason, is not on the current edition of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge, which has been top notch, let's pay tribute to her with these photos and this must-see video.

Can't We All Just Get Along?

I'll let Fan IQ explain this link to you, but the CliffsNotes version is this: A Cleveland TV anchor got upset with an Atlanta newspaper writer who knocked Cleveland. The duo was then put on the air together and hilarity ensued. Actually, awkwardness ensued and viewers were left to figure out which guy came off worse.

Speaking Of Great Live TV...

You gotta check out what happened when Washington Capitals TV reporter Lisa Hillary saw a rat on the ice while doing her live report.

"That's Not Right"

With cheap shots occurring on a frequent basis in the NBA playoffs, BroBible.com has put together a list of the Top 10 "That's Not Right" Moments in Sports. The list is solid, with one exception. BroBible has Hulk Hogan using a steel chair on Ted DiBiase during WrestleMania IV. Any wrestling fan knows that there wasn't a bigger "that's not right" moment than Roddy Piper cracking a coconut over Jimmy Snuka's head.

I've Been Waiting For This Moment For All My Life

A few weeks back, Hot Clicks posted the trailer to the upcoming movie The Hangover, in which Mike Tyson was featured doing some air guitar action to Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight. Well, an extended version of the trailer has been released, and in this one, Tyson just flat out rocks the song.
