Actor Rainn Wilson recently kidnapped Blake Griffin, put him in the back of a van and interviewed him. The results were outstanding. (Thanks to Charlos Fox, of San Luis Obispo, Calif., for the link.)
Goodbye Song
Late Monday afternoon, Ichiro Suzuki was traded from the Mariners to the Yankees. Last night, Death Cab For Cutie lead singer Ben Gibbard released this tribute song he wrote a few years ago about the then-Mariners outfielder. (Thanks to @BryanAGraham for the link.)
This Is Not Professional
Fact: All local announcers are homers. It doesn't matter if it's TV or radio, local announcers root for the home team. Sure, some folks like White Sox TV guy Ken "Hawk" Harrelson and Yankees radio guy John Sterling are way over the top, but the bottom line is "local = homer." However, when local announcers cross over to do a national game, you'd think they put the homerism away for a few hours. That wasn't the case Saturday, when Phillies broadcaster Tom McCarthy called the Philadelphia-San Francisco game for Fox. Listen to the depression in McCarthy's voice when Matt Cain homered off Cole Hamels and then listen to him go nuts when Hamels returned the favor and homered off Cain.
Photo Gallery Of The Day
Selita Ebanks :: Jason LaVeris/Getty Images
When I read this morning that supermodel Selita Ebanks was being sued for allegedly breaking another woman's nose, I had two thoughts: 1) There's no way someone as lovely as Selita would do such a thing. 2) I should feature Selita in Hot Clicks today.
Tattoo Of The Day
Quite frankly, I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a cop getting tattoos of NFL players, but I'm not here to judge, I'm here to bring you the links. And this Rob Gronkowski tattoo is a must-see.
Vicious
This hit from a recent rugby game will make you wince.
For The Sake Of My Inbox...
Yes, I'm well aware of this Minka Kelly story. I've also seen this story about the actress with an extra (fake) body part. Lastly, I linked to this video of hurdler Michelle Jenneke one day last week, so no need to keep submitting that link.
Exercise Equipment Video Of The Day
Now we just need a video of someone using the gadget shown below and the Shake Weight at the same time. (Thanks to Shawn, of Columbia, Mo., and Chris Winnay, of Shelburne, Vt., for the video.)

Prank Video Of The Day
We'll assume this guy, who tried to make his wife think a truck was coming at them, had to sleep on the couch that night. (Thanks to TailgaitingIdeas.com for the link.)
