With the U.S. Open wrapping up this weekend, it would be shortsighted of me not to check in with the greatest women's tennis player of all time.

Reports say Troy Polamalu could miss 3-6 weeks with a sprained MCL. Obviously, there is only one person to blame -- John Madden. If you don't believe me, check this out.

Speaking Of John Madden...

The legendary analyst will serve as a special advisor (with no pay) to NFL commissioner Roger Goddell. I'm sure Madden reads Hot Clicks on his bus, so I'd like to offer him some advice on what his first order of business should be. John, please tell the commish that offering blacked-out games on NFL.com is completely and totally useless when the games won't be available until midnight of each Sunday. Thanks.

Joe Wilson's outburst toward President Obama the other night has inspired Bleacher Report to look at the most famous hecklers in sports history.

E-Mail Of The Day

Ryan Scopelliti, of Fairfield, Conn., says, "Jimmy, you've gotta put something funny up about how ridiculous the announcers were during last night's game. Not only were they blatantly rooting for the Steelers, but what was with [] Collinsworth and Polomalu??? Are they dating? It was ridiculous." I'm way ahead of you, Ryan.

This Will Get Season Pass Treatment
