    Meet Baby Ben, a calf born at the Vale Wood Farm in Pennsylvania with a giant number 7 on its head and named after Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who shares the number 7. When reached for comment about the coincidence, the cow appeared to have no idea what ... / Continue →

    In case you didn't catch my alma mater Virginia Tech upset Ohio State last weekend, this was the Ohio State Marching Band's television themed halftime show. It's really worth watching. They've got it all: Dragnet, The Simpsons, Addams Family, Batman, M.A.S.H., I Dream Of Geni... / Continue →

    This is a video demo of a glitch from Madden NFL 15 that causes Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey to appear 1-foot 2-inches tall (although he's on the Tennessee Titans in the video due to playing on challenge mode). Apparently he's not that good at tackling, but can s... / Continue →

    UPDATE: Presumably satire. FAKE HAIR, DON'T CARE. Pubic hair, do care -- especially if it's in my fast food. This is a North Korean news report claiming the country made it to the World Cup final against Portugal (because why not lie about everything) after defeating Japan 7... / Continue →

    This is part of a World Cup inspired anti-gambling campaign run in Singapore. This kid's dad just made a fortune. Granted gambling addiction is bad, but that's only when you're losing. It's much harder to explain to somebody who just won thousands of dollars why what they di... / Continue →

    This is the series of Game of Thrones house themed soccer uniforms imagined by Spanish designer Nerea Palacios. She did a great job. I would play for any of those teams. Jk jk, I would only play for House Targaryen. I want the dragons on my team. "Dragons can't play soccer... / Continue →

    So somebody realized the 2014 World Cup Brazil logo looks like a facepalming Captain Picard. You think the person who designed it was inspired by The Next Generation? That answer is no unless you're a crazy person. Come on, I believe in gnomes and fairies and even I can reco... / Continue →

    In arguably the only respectable use of robotics, 29-year old paraplegic Juliano Pinto used a full-body robotic suit to kick the first kick at the opening ceremonies of the World Cup yesterday. The exoskeletal suit is mind-controlled, so you think, "left foot step", and the le... / Continue →

    US President Obama recently traveled to Japan (presumably to stock up on Manga and novelty snack foods) and met some of the country's latest in robot technology. Specifically, Honda's ASIMO, which he played soccer with before calling it scary. Which it is, so regardless of yo... / Continue →

    Well, the football season is over and the Redskins lost -- AGAIN. We came close though. "You only won three games." I'm not even sure if we should be considered a professional team anymore. Maybe a couple years of arena football and we can come back. This is a series of fo... / Continue →

    This is The Ohio State University's marching band performing their 'Hollywood Blockbuster' themed halftime routine. It includes songs and visuals from Superman, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean. It does not include any scenes from th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a drunk Washington State football fan pouring popcorn on himself in the rain as his team gets its ass handed to it by Stanford. I could watch this man all day -- and probably will. If you think I won't leave this video open in a tab all day today and tomorr... / Continue →

    This is a $30 Death Star Soccer Ball available from ThinkGeek (originally only available at the Star Wars Celebration in Europe). Of course, most of the world probably recognizes it as a Death Star football. The US just calls football soccer because, like the metric system, w... / Continue →

    Note: It's Columbo Day and I'm using it to take care of some real-life stuff. If I disappear all of a sudden in a cloud of smoke just know that I'm a powerful magician and will reappear tomorrow, possibly out of a top-hat. This is The Ohio State University's marching band p... / Continue →

    This is a Volkswagen Super Bowl teaser commercial (because those exist now) featuring a bunch of dogs barking out the Imperial March. It was sent to me by Geekologie Reader Robert, who you might remember made the original AT-AT dog costume. Apparently he sent his plans to a g... / Continue →

    This is an old-ass video of a robotic goalkeeper named Ball-Lover Robokeeper that's programmed to track an orange soccer ball and never miss a save (unless you shoot in a top corner). Now I'm not saying I know for a fact I could easily get one past him, but I AM saying I know ... / Continue →

    Picture unrelated related enough. If all goes according to plan, Brazilian police forces will be equipped with 'Robocop' sunglasses before the next World Cup (see what I did there?), capable of scanning and detecting the faces of known trouble-makers/terrorists and alerting of... / Continue →

    With World Cup fever in full swing what better way to celebrate than jamming a vuvuzela up somebody's ass playing a little bathroom soccer? Enter the Klokicker, the urine-based sport that's sure to have you staring at another man's wiener. Football mania while urinating ! I... / Continue →

    Note: Video is after the jump because that's where the Force is. You should use it. Plus deodorant. This is another awesome Star Wars-themed Adidas commercial featuring Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, and a bunch of other famous-ass people. Plus there's a funny Greedo scene! An... / Continue →

    Sure the Superbowl has come and gone, but the Saints beat the shit out of the Colts, did they not? WHO DAT?! It's me, silly -- the GW! That masterpiece of culinary greatness (and bacon) is called the Bacon Lombardi Trophy, or Bacombardi Trophy for short, and thanks to a grea... / Continue →
