You can see all of this on full display on the website, Why You Should Love Dunk City, which gives you everything from the Eagles’ tournament run via GIFs, videos and tweets.

I get e-mails like this all the time. So, starting today, we’re going to experiment with something a little different. In each day’s A.M. Hot Clicks, I will do a “Lovely Lady Roundup” and give you a few links from around the web. In each day’s P.M. Hot Clicks, we will feature a Lovely Lady of the Day as we’ve always done. So, for today’s roundup … Katy Perry gave the youngsters a thrill at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday. … Fitness model Allira Cohrs, who was the LLOD in January, is back with a new gallery. … A couple of weeks ago, we linked to a video of model Misa Campo dancing to Justin Timberlake‘s Suit & Tie. She’s now dancing to Ciara‘s Body Party.
