A Monday Night Dud
Ed Hochuli and his interesting choice of words were the high point of Seattle’s victory over New Orleans last night. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll celebrated the victory by wearing a top hat and monocle (at least in this GIF) while the fans at CenturyLink Field celebrated by setting a Guinness World Record for loudest recorded crowd noise (and causing an earthquake.) To top off a horrendous night for the Saints, their team plane broke down trying to leave Seattle.
Another Amazing Hockey Jersey
In honor of Jimmy Buffett‘s concert tonight at the Xcel Energy Center, the Minnesota Wild designed a Hawaiian shirt-themed jersey as a gift to the singer. It goes without saying that the Wild should wear these for an actual game. Get on Twitter (@mnwild) and let them know.
Worth a Shot
A couple randomly sent Peyton Manning an invitation to their wedding and got a response from the quarterback, who had to regretfully decline.

Tweet of the Day (Runner-Up)

Stevie Johnson > DeSean Jackson
The Eagles receiver may be having a better year on the field but when it comes to birthday cakes, we’ll take the Bills receiver. To be more specific, Jackson recently celebrated his birthday with two cakes – one the shape of a Mercedes Benz and the other a $100 bill. But they pale in comparison to Johnson’s butt cake, which is still the clubhouse leader in athlete pastries.
SI Vault Photo Of The Day
On this day in 1988, Barry Sanders was awarded the Heisman Trophy after one of the greatest seasons in college football history. The Oklahoma State back rushed for 2,628 yards and 39 touchdowns in just 11 games. USC’s Rodney Peete finished second in voting and UCLA’s Troy Aikman came in third.
Odds and Ends
Anthony Mason used to be the muscle at LL Cool J’s barbecues … Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, Titans running back Leon Washington and Patriots defensive end Andre Carter will appear on Discovery’s series Naked and Afraid later this month … Anthony Davis wore a $1,500 Gucci backpack around Manhattan when the Pelicans played the Knicks over the weekend … I love what this Browns fan did with his Trent Richardson jersey … Rest easy, Eagles fans: Michael Vick did not break both his legs … Lastly, there will be a giveaway in PM Hot Clicks. Remember the first place I post Clicks is my Twitter feed, so you should follow if you want first dibs.
