Over the past couple of days, rumors have been rampant that Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and Swimsuit model Kate Upton are an item. Apparently, the duo took in an Aerosmith concert, she was in his suite for a game, and then they were spotted at a bar together. I reached out to Upton a couple of times for a comment, but have not gotten a response. However, what we do have is this truly outstanding song, Upton Girl, set to Billy Joel's classic Uptown Girl.
Tebow Backlash
Lower Columbia College (Wa.) freshman outfielder Derrick Salberg was featured in Hot Clicks in late May for an incredible catch he made over the fence. The grab had Salberg up for an ESPY last night, but he lost. He then took out his frustrations on Tim Tebow. Colts punter Pat McAfee also wasn't impressed with Tebow's speech.

The only good thing about the ESPYs is that good-looking people get all dolled up and walk the red carpet. Here, in no particular order, are 10 Hot Clicks favorites from last night.

One important note: No one looked better than Hot Clicks favorite, Jaime Edmondson. However, the only pictures of her that we had access to via our photo services included her boyfriend, Evan Longoria, and I know you guys wouldn't appreciate that, so she didn't make the photo gallery.
