During his 12-year career as a tight end for the Broncos and Ravens, Shannon Sharpe earned a reputation as one of the most outspoken players in the league. The act has carried over to his position as NFL analyst on CBS, but not everyone is a fan. Last Sunday, Sharpe described Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as selfish and said Green Bay's receivers don't like playing for him. Rodgers responded today on ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde's radio show, saying "Anybody can have an opinion about anything regardless of how stupid it might be, or uninformed."
Kevin Garnett > Kevin Love
Kevin Love has become the Timberwolves' team leader over his four years with the team, and the city's most popular baller since Kevin Garnett. But perhaps Love tried too hard to emulate his predecessor. The Minnesota center will miss 4-6 weeks after breaking his hand doing bare knuckle pushups. Garnett famously (and without injury) did his own bare knuckle pushups in the middle of the Eastern Conference Finals last season against Miami. Of course, nothing beats the knuckle pushups from the training sequence in Best of the Best (2:28 mark of this video).
My original plan was to make Maria Menounos today's LLOD in honor of her finding and rescuing three dogs wandering around the San Fernando Valley. But Tyrant Jimmy nixed her because he's already featured her a million times. So onto Plan B: German model Birte Glang, who has never appeared in Hot Clicks. Sorry, Maria.
People can criticize Alex Rodriguez for hitting on a fan in the stands but nobody can question his taste. Here's the apple of A-Rod's eye, Australian bikini model Kyna Treacy, in a commercial for Air Pacific.

UMass walk-ons football players Rob O'Connor and Daniel Maynes were given full scholarships by coach Charley Molnar, but that's not what they were expecting when two state police officers interrupted a team meeting to give them the news (the feel-good part comes after the prank).
