Maria Everson, of Marsing, Idaho, says, "Hey, Jimmy! As a female sports lover, I understand that sports are a male-dominated venture. I am a devoted fan of Hot Clicks. I even love the LLODs (I check out their makeup, hair, and clothing to see what ideas I can get to keep my marriage spicy). I have the best husband in the world -- he just surprised me for my 40th birthday by taking me to Las Vegas this weekend to see Justin Timberlake in concert! So my question? Could you PLEASE feature J.T.? I know he has been on here in the past, but he hosted the Shriner's Open last week, so it is sports related. I need some extra J.T. this week. Please?"

Since Maria asked so nicely and since pro golfer Jonathan Byrd sank a hole in one to win Timberlake's tournament over the weekend, and since Timberlake joins sports figures such as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Sidney Crosby, and Tom Brady on AskMen.com's brand new list of the Top 49 Most Influential Men, her request is granted.

Craigslist Posting Of The Day
This guy is willing to trade his car and camera for Celtics tickets. Hopefully, whomever takes him up on the offer also throws in some free spelling lessons. (Thanks to Stuart Buchanan, of Fort Collins, Col., for the link.)

BREAKING NEWS: Just as I was about to publish Hot Clicks, this Craigslist gem was sent to me via Twitter.

Lovely Lady Of The Day

Jon Wright, of Overland Park, Kan., says, "Hey, Jimmy, it looks like my 'Boys are done for the year. Can you please help at least make Cowboys Nation's day a little bit brighter and feature the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders as LLOD?" I'm not doing this to make Cowboys Nation feel better. I'm doing this because I've gotten some e-mails this season from fans who were upset that Abigail Klein is no longer part of the Cowboys cheerleading squad, so she's getting today's LLOD honors.
LeBron, LeBron, LeBron
With the Heat and LeBron (after he partied with A-Rod this weekend) opening their season against the Celtics tonight, King James is still dominating all the NBA headlines. For example, a witch doctor placed a hex on LeBron this morning. And LeBron's Cavaliers jersey is being distributed to homeless people in Miami.
