Like him or not, we have to come to the same conclusion: Tom Brady is the best NFL quarterback and one of the coolest human beings of all-time. Since his start in 2001, Brady climbed his way up from benchwarmer to Pro Bowler, puts up Hall of Fame numbers season after season, starred in an Entourage episode, and is married to the hottest woman on the planet.
The next best thing to watching Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch break tackle after tackle is catching a glimpse of his postgame interviews. Even though they usually last about 30 seconds, with quick, dry answers (“Yup,” “Thanks for asking, boss,” and “I’m here so I won’t get fined”), Beast Mode has become an anti-media hero around the league due to his consistent shunning of the press.

Ding ding ding! It’s time for round two of VH1’s version of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. And what do we have for you this week? Hot soccer player legs in action. Muy caliente.
-By Christopher Rosa
The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off June 12, and for one month Americans pretend to care about soccer (C’mon, you were all thinking it). One thing none of us have to fake, however, is our love for hot soccer players running on the field and doing things like “bicycle kicks” and “punting.” What is this foreign language? In celebration of this glorious event, we here at VH1 decided to start our own little version of the FIFA World Cup. But instead of focusing on trivial things like goals and penalties, we’re getting down to the essentials, starting with hot bodies–duh.
Last night Jon Hamm hosted the 2013 ESPY Awards, which honors individual athletes and teams for outstanding achievements in sports and athletics. The annual event presented by ESPN tends to draw everyone from NFL stars to SNL actors. That’s right everyone is there: LeBron James, Jon Hamm, P. Diddy, Maria Sharapova, and the list goes on. Check out all the folks who became best friends if only for one night.
With the release of 42 starring Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson, we look back on the best films that told the true stories of athletes that challenged the system. Many greats have overcame adversity to become the legends they are today. Check out who made the list and let us know who we forgot. Read more…
I’ll Have Another, the horse that won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, officially withdrew from the Belmont Stakes for precautionary reasons, ending his bid to be the sport’s first Triple Crown winner in 34 years.
On the plus side, I’ll Have Another is officially now retired, and his fellow horses took him out for a night on the town to cheer him up. I don’t know how or why this video exists, but it is outstanding:
We’ve seen some sh*tty bobbleheads in the past, but this recently-recalled bobblehead of Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay is just on another level of hilarious/confusing badness.
Take a look and give it a second, then go “zuwhaa?”:
Forget the fact that it doesn’t look like Roy Halladay or that Halladay throws right-handed and this thing is holding the ball with its left – those are AMATEUR sh*tty bobblehead mistakes. What really makes this one exceptional is the fact that regardless of his handedness, NO ONE IN BASEBALL EVER DOES THIS IN A GAME EVER.
Why is he winding up the opposite way of where he’s throwing (With his wrong hand)? They’ve been making Bobbleheads for like 80 years (ever since that President Taft bobblehead, which was just President Taft), clearly they understand how baseball throwing operates – how did this one turn into some frickin’ M.C. Escher impossible-figure?
Speaking of which, do they make M.C. Echer bobbleheads? Cause if not, I’ve got 900,000 high school geometry teachers who are about to mail me their cash.

If there’s one thing we here on the internet can’t get enough of, it’s THINGS turned into OTHER THINGS. For example: Office Space…Laser rice? DONE. Photo. Internet. We all have some laughs.
Today’s excellent “thing as a thing” is a birthday cake made in the shape of Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden’s head, and it’s great:
Is it bad luck to turn your face into a cake in the middle of the playoffs, or am I thinking of pies? Never mind, I’m thinking of pies. I’m always thinking of pies. I want some pie.
