You know what the best thing is about Minka Kelly being named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive? Of course you do. It's this video. But another great thing about giving Derek Jeter's stunning girlfriend the honor is that Esquire had a party for Minka and now we have new pictures and a new video.
NFL Broadcasting Poll
I was planning to do something similar in Hot Clicks this season, but USA Today has beaten me to the punch. They want you to vote for your favorite NFL TV people and shows. I'm going to tell you how I voted since I know it'll get me tons of hate mail and that always gives me a good chuckle.

BEST NFL GAME ANALYST: Phil Simms
(Slight nod over Troy Aikman.)

BEST PLAY-BY-PLAY: Joe Buck (I used to dislike the way Buck called football games, but I think he's improved tremendously and he's hit a great balance of calling the game straight while still throwing in some humor.)

BEST GAME CREW: Troy Aikman, Joe Buck, Pam Oliver (Fox)

BEST PREGAME SHOW: Fox NFL Sunday (Fox)
(Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long and Jimmy Johnson always bring something to the table.)

BEST PREGAME HOST: Chris Berman (ESPN)
(This will be the one that you guys criticize. I have a soft spot for Berman. Sue me. In all seriousness, though, I think he still does an excellent job on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown.)

BEST INSIDER: Jay Glazer (Fox)
(I don't watch the CBS or NBC pregame shows, so I'm going with Glazer, who seems to have a good scoop every week.)

BEST SIDELINE REPORTER: None
(I don't like any of them and I don't dislike any of them. I usually ignore them 95% of the time.)

BEST STUDIO SHOW: NFL Total Access (NFL Network)

Speaking Of NFL Pregame Show...
Here's a great piece on how much time each person on the Fox and CBS shows spends laughing.

Speaking Of Halloween...
Remember the tremendous photo of a kid dressed as Rangers managers Ron Washington from yesterday's A.M. Hot Clicks? He's becoming a star.
Movember
I've been getting a lot of e-mails over the past couple of weeks asking me to mention Movember, a fundraising game featuring men growing mustaches for the month of November in order to raise money to help fight prostate cancer. Here is the official site, and here is a video featuring actress Malin Akerman in which she promotes Movember.
Giants/Journey Video Of The Day -- No. 1
Via Big League Stew comes this video of the Giants crowd singing Journey's Lights during last night's game.

Giants/Journey Video Of The Day -- No. 2
Via TheScore.com comes this video of the Giants crowd singing Journey's Don't Stop Believin' during Game 5 of the NLCS. Look for a VERY VERY special guest cameo at the at the 45-second mark.
