In honor of Opening Day, this week's guest on The Hot Clicks Podcast is Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson. Truth be told, we only talked about baseball for a little bit at the beginning. They we discussed guns, his dad's mocking of Tim McCarver, entrance music, photography, Twitter, his model girlfriend (Dominique Piek) and much more. The Hot Clicks Podcast is now on iTunes.

The MLB Fan Cave
A few weeks ago I told you that Major League Baseball was searching for a blogger to watch every game this season from a new "Fan Cave" in downtown Manhattan. Well, the blogger has been hired, and Mike O'Hara will watch all 2,430 games this season, along with his sidekick, Ryan Wagner. Here is the full story on their mission for the 2011 season. As for that "Fan Cave," I had a chance to visit it yesterday. I took some quick videos for you guys to check out. Here is a tour of the space. Here is the unveiling of the 15 TVs (three 60-inch and 12 32-inch), and here is a quick chat with Mike and Ryan. If you're in Manhattan at any point this summer, I strongly recommend you checking out the studio.

Sports Video Of The Day
Wizards guard John Wall used an interesting defensive technique on Heat center Zydrunas Ilgauskas last night: throwing a punch. Granted, Ilgauskas was getting frisky with the elbows, but Wall needs to disguise the punch a little better than that.
