Hello, Hot Clicks Nation. How's life? I'm behind the keyboard again and will be here until I go to Vegas for a March Madness/bachelor party trip, so you're stuck with me for a while. And I'm back just in time to say a few things about Fox's shaky BCS coverage, which has ended for good. One, whoever directed the Boise State-TCU game musthave gotten paid by the bands for camera time. Two, using your NFL guys to do the college games is weak. Three, Chris Myers who normally does a very solid job, asked Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi a ridiculous question after the game last night: "I know you're from Middle America. Do you feel like sometimes you're representing more than just a school or conference? Maybe an entire group of American citizens out there?" This led to Stanzi responding as if he was giving an old-school WWF promo, screaming out, "If you don't love it, leave it, USA, number one." Since Stanzi did win a bowl game, though, I figured he deserved some reward, so here are some, uh, patriotic photos he'll enjoy.
Oops
I thought I was done with all lists pertaining to last year, but I couldn't pass this one up: The top 10 erroneous columns of 2009.
At Least He's Wearing Dodger Blue
On Monday, Andy Gray told you about Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp dating Rihanna. Well, it looks like the couple is having a blast in Mexico. At least, I think that's them having a blast in Mexico.
Quote Of The Day
Chad Ochocinco: Getty Images
Chad Ochocinco on his injured left knee: "I had sex yesterday. With some of the moves I did -- I should be fine." Hopefully he used one of these.
King James' Kicks
I'm not sure if this is real or not, but if this is indeed LeBron James' new sneaker, Knicks fans should be happy.

UPDATE, 1:00 p.m.: My bad. This is what happens when you don't work for a week. The shoes are fake and the story is old.
Randy Retires
Randy Johnson announced his retirement last night. The dominating lefty is a lock for Cooperstown based on his career, but as we all know, if there was a Hall of Fame for nicknames, he'd go in on the first ballot.
Sports Video Of The Day
DJ Steve Porter, who made the famous "Press Hop" video, is back with a new creation featuring a slew of NFL coaches.

Koala Bear Video Of The Day
Andy Roddick was giving an interview in Australia yesterday when two koala bears decided to pull a Chad Ochocinco. (For the full story and the video that features Roddick's wife, Brooklyn Decker, click here.)
