There's a big court case going on in Connecticut right now that's trying to determine whether cheerleadering is a sport. Obviously, Hot Clicks says, "Hell, yes, it is." But even if that case determines it's not a sport, I want to assure you, Hot Clicks Nation, that cheerleaders will always be a part of this column.
The Doc Halladay Song
The Blue-Jays Phillies series this weekend was supposed to be played in Toronto, but had to be moved to Philadelphia because of the G20 Summit taking place in Toronto. The news didn't sit well with this Blue Jays fan who is mad about missing Roy Halladay's return to Canada. So she's voicing her displeasure through song. (Thanks to Mitch Gascoyne of Toronto for the link.)
Today's "Courting LeBron" Update
Ohio gubernatorial candidate John Kasich has caused a stir in his state by saying LeBron James is the last person he's worried about.

The NHL's Biggest Fans
The NHL Awards Show airs tonight night on Versus at 7:30 ET. Snoop Dogg, who is schedule to perform, discusses his love of the sport and many other things in this highly amusing interview.
Pirates Pierogi Perseveres
Monday's A.M. Hot Clicks told you about the Pirates firing one of their pierogi mascots because he criticized the team on Facebook. Well, the story has a happy ending because the pierogi has been rehired.
List Of The Day
Complex.com ranks the 50 best raunchy teen comedies of all time. I guess I can't complain that my No. 1, American Pie, came in at a very respectable No. 6.
Silent Library Video Of The Day -- Part I
If you're not familiar with MTV's Silent Library, here's the premise via the network: "A team of six contestants attempts a series of offbeat challenges to win money. The show is set in a library, so the players must remain quiet. The contestants draw cards, and the player who gets the one with skull and crossbones must complete a bizarre task or endure an unusual punishment. If they do so without laughing, the show's host, Zero Kazama, awards them money. But if the team cracks up or is otherwise too loud, they lose."

OK, why am I telling you this? Because six New York Giants players -- Kevin Boss, Chris Snee, Rich Seubert, Dave Tollefson, Shaun O'Hara and Dave Diehl -- appear on the episode that airs June 28. Below is a preview clip in which O'Hara gets nailed in the face with tennis balls. Believe me, it's much funnier than it sounds.

Silent Library Video Of The Day -- Part II
In this clip, Boss gets bitten by an elderly man. Again, believe me when I tell you it's much funnier than it sounds.

Banned Commercial Of The Day
Bad job by the person who banned this gem.
