Remember Spanish sports reporter Sara Carbonero, who caused a stir during the World Cup when her boyfriend, Spain national team goaltender Iker Casillas' gave her a smooch on air? Well, she's been banned from making comments about Casillas' Real Madrid teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo, after she called him "arrogant."
Wild-Card Weekend Prop Bets
First, a word from Bodog Sportsbook Manager, Richard Gardner. "The Seahawks are the largest home dog in the past 25 years (our records don't go past 1985) in the NFL Playoffs, yet that is not stopping our bettors from putting down their dollars on the Saints to cover -11 this Saturday. Even though Seattle is traditionally tough at home and played inspired last week New Orleans remain big favs and a popular bet." Now for the prop bets...

You Can Be A Milwaukee Brewer
On the heels of the item in Thursday's P.M. Hot Clicks about the Anaheim Angels' fantastic promotions and giveaways, David Zumstein, of Milwaukee, alerts us that the Brewers are actually giving one fan -- who has purchased or renewed season ticket packages of 20 games or more for the upcoming season -- a chance to sign a one-day contract with the team, which will also include a uniform and a day's Major League salary.
This Will Get You Pumped Up
Lance Guidry :: AP
Miami (OH) defeated Middle Tennessee, 35-21, in the GoDaddy.com Bowl Thursday night. The win completed the biggest turnaround in college football history as the RedHawks went from 1-11 in 2009 to 10-4 in 2010. After seeing the awesome pregame speech delivered by Miami coach Lance Guidry, no one should be surprised by what the team pulled off.
Revenge
Remember earlier in the college football season when Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee caused a stir by arrogantly dismissing small schools, saying they don't deserve to play in BCS bowls and referring to teams like TCU as "the little sisters of the poor." Well, TCU fans wanted to make sure Gee and others knew about their win over Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl, so they paid for these billboards to go up in Columbus.
Word!
I've stated many times that I'm all for over-the-top, outrageous celebrations. But sometimes a very subtle, simple gesture, like this one by Canadians goalie Carey Price, is just as solid.
Jaime Edmondson Says Hello
Hot Clicks Nation favorite Jaime Edmondson wanted to say hello to you guys, so she sent in this picture from a photoshoot she's currently on. Since she was kind enough to do that, the least I can do is remind you to vote for her for Playboy's 2011 Playmate of the Year.
Sports Video Of The Day
Via my colleague Bryan Graham (follow him on Twitter) comes this video of Andre Agassi at a charity auction offering the highest bidder a chance to see a picture of his wife, Steffi Graf, naked on his phone, and then showing the winner the photo.

Please Be Fake Video Of The Day
Kyle, of Des Moines, Iowa, says, "Jimmy, you have to post this video. I guess the Ukraine was tired of the stranglehold China has on Olympic gymnastics...this is the new and improved training regimen! You might have to put a disclaimer on this video. This is in no way, shape, or form good for an infant. PS, getting onto Hot Clicks is my make-a-wish."
