As proved by WWE's Bella Twins Divas, Brie and Nikki, things are always better when they come in two. So starting today, there will be two editions of Hot Clicks posted each day. I can't give you a definitive posting time of each edition, but right now the plan is to get the morning edition posted on SI.com by 10:30 ET. The afternoon edition is expected to be up around 3 p.m. The best thing to do is bookmark the Extra Mustard section of the site and check it regularly.
UPDATE, 3:30 p.m.: Due to massive technical difficulties, two-a-days will actually start Friday. Sorry.
Minka Is Kinda Attractive
It was as if Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly knew today was the launch of the double shot of Hot Clicks and went out of their way to give me material. And by material, I mean several pictures of them -- great word coming up here -- frolicking at a St. Bart's beach.
The Thierry Henry hand ball in yesterday's France-Ireland World Cup qualifying playoff has the Internet abuzz. I can't say I know much about it, but some people in the SI.com office were screaming and yelling and going crazy. Since I can't offer much on this story, I asked one of SI.com's soccer expert, Bryan Graham (soccer fans should follow him on Twitter) for a couple of good links to sum up this controversy. He came through with this and this.
Brent Musburger, Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson :: ESPN/CBS Sports
I'll go out on a limb and say this will fire up football fans. The Sporting News has just released its list of the top 25 football broadcasters. Personally, I don't like mixing play-by-play men with analysts, which is what the Sporting News did. Anyway, here's my two cents. Give me Verne Lundquist (No. 8) and Brent Musburger (No. 13) any day of the week. They should be Nos. 1 and 2. I don't understand why people think Cris Collinsworth (No. 2) is so great. Of course, the people who do are usually in the business and not regular fans. I say Kirk Herbstreit (No. 5) is the best analyst in the business. Mike Patrick (No. 22) has no business on this list. I know Dick Enberg has lost a little on his fastball, but he should much higher than 25th. The man can still call a game.
UPDATE, 3:03 p.m.: My apologies to the Sporting News. I originally wrote that they mixed in studio hosts with the play-by-play men and analysts, which led me to gripe about Chris Fowler's placement. The list is based only on game action.
Craigslist Post Of The Day
A Wisconsin fan wants tickets to the Badgers' upcoming game against Duke so he can do something nasty and vile to Coach K. Warning: Nasty language is used in the post. (Thanks to JR, of Madison, Wis., for the link.)
The Power Of Pau
Yesterday's Hot Clicks featured a video of Pau Gasol singing and dancing. Many of you pointed out that Gasol recently appeared on an episode of CSI Miami. Here's a clip of Gasol's on the show. Even better than that, Unathleticmag.com is looking at the many faces of Gasol, who is expected to make his 2009-10 debut tonight.

Tim Tebow Tribute Video Of The Day
Florida Gators fans will love this video. Those who hate the Gators and Tim Tebow will enjoy making fun of this video. It's two guys from "Gator Growl Talent Night" performing a Florida-themed parody of John Denver's Country Roads, with the chorus being "Tim Teboooooow, Take me Hooooooooooome." Fast forward to the 2-minute mark to get to the song.
