Poor Metta World Peace. The guy just wanted to send out a nice, simple tweet yesterday, but instead he caused a stir because he got his holidays mixed up. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Hot Clicks friend Paul "BizNasty2point0" Bissonnette knew it was Memorial Day weekend and seemed to make the most of it. The Coyotes forward made his way to Las Vegas, where he hung out with Paulina Gretzky, hit the pool with a group of ladies, hit the pool the next day with another group of ladies, proclaimed he's in love with this woman, and made some money playing blackjack.
Leyland Loses It
After this terrible call by the home plate umpire on what should've been a third strike against the Red Sox, Tigers manger Jim Leyland got ejected. After the game, he went on a classic rant in which he demanded reporters call out the umpires for being awful.
Weekend Leftovers
Reds third baseman Todd Frazier hit a home run Sunday while losing his bat on the swing. ... ESPN's Jeff Van Gundy went on a great tirade last night after the refs called a cheap technical foul on Celtics coach Doc Rivers. ... You have to see where Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio watched an NBA playoff game from this weekend.

Sports Video Of The Day
I can't break down exactly what's going on here because I don't know anything about rugby. But I can tell you that one guy literally holds up a teammate by his shorts, and it's amazing. (Thanks to Colin, of Whitehorse, Yukon, for the video.)

Bartender Video Of The Day
Tom Cruise in Cocktail looks like a piece of garbage compared to Alexander Shtifanov, a contestant on Ukraine's Got Talent. (Thanks to Brandon Moseley, of Manama, Bahrain, for the video.)
