Hot Clicks

Who wants some breaking news? Who wants to know who is performing at halftime of Super Bowl XLIV on Feb. 7 in Miami? Who wants me to shut up and just get to it already? Well, if you haven't figured it out by now, according to a source, The Who will take the stage during the NFL's championship game. Reached for comment, an NFL spokesperson said, "When we have something to announce, we'll announce it." I can assure you I'm not just writing this because Tori Praver rocked this body paint in Sports Illustrated's 2007 Swimsuit Issue, which was billed as "The Music Issue." The Who will be performing at the Super Bowl.

Angry Fans

With several NFL fan bases fed up with their teams' ineptitude (hello, Washington), Mental Floss is looking back at 10 memorable sports protests.

'The Mullet Isn't A Hairdo, It's A Lifestyle'

Big props to The Cooley Zone for Tweeting the link to this video of Vikings defensive end Jared Allen waxing poetic about his mullet.

VD And Crabs

Back when Michael Crabtree was holding out on the 49ers, Hot Clicks linked to a site selling T-shirts that said, "Who needs Crabs when we got VD." (That's Vernon Davis, in case you didn't get it.) Well, as you know, Crabtree has been signed for a while now, so the site is back with a new and improved shirt that ever 49ers fan should wear proudly.

DUI Dummies

I wish I didn't have any DUI stories to post because nobody should drink and drive ever, but there seems to be a rash of bizarre tales. Monday, Hot Clicks told you about a guy whose last name was Duis getting arrested for a DUI. Today, we have a woman calling 911 to report a DUI -- on herself! And a story about a man who went to bail out a friend who was arrested on a charge of drunk driving, only HE WAS DRUNK, TOO! (Thanks to Aaron, of Madison, Wis., and Marty, of Syracuse, N.Y., for the links.)

E-Mail Of The Day

Scott Stephens, of Moscow, Idaho, says, "Jimmy, I don't ask for much, and I read Hot Clicks every day, am a fan of you on Facebook and follow you on Twitter. All I'm asking is that you take note of the Boise State-Idaho game going on this week. I'm an Idaho student and our athletic director was flying to Boise this week and they tried to put him on the Horizon Air plane with the BSU logos and s--- on it. He drove an hour plus to Spokane to fly on a different plane. This may not be a huge story, but what else do you have to link to on a random Thursday? Also, I've put together a few demotivational posters about BSU, including one with Erin Andrews. Please, Jimmy, I beg of you: Put me in Hot Clicks."
