-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.

All The Besties At The ESPYS

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.

Who Needs The Triple Crown When We Have “Horses’ Day Off”?

Horses Day Off

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:

This Roy Halladay Bobblehead Is The Worst Bobblehead Ever Made

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?”:

Roy Halladay Bobblehead Error

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.

NBA Player’s Head Makes Way-Too-Perfect Cake

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:

James Harden Head Cake

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.

The Most Awesomely 90s Back Tattoo Of All Time

Anyone been watching the NBA Playoffs? Have you been “cheering” for your team, like some fairweather bandwagoner who only uses their voice and hands to cheer for things, instead of getting a massive tattoo of two players across your entire back?

Behold, this giant Michael Jordan / Dennis Rodman back tattoo, which may be the most impressively 90s tattoo of all time:

Yup, that’s the coolest back in 90s history. Unless you can find me a tattoo of Sonic the Hedgehog wearing a Charlotte Hornets Starter Jacket skateboarding up the Double Dare Sundae Slide, in which case, that would take the crown and also start putting that on my flesh asap.

South Korean Worst First Pitch Is What Your First Pitch Would Look Like, Let’s Be Honest

Okay, sure, we all enjoy someone botching a first pitch. For example, South Korean pop star Jessica from the girl group SNSD, who really just blew it big time before a recent LG vs Samsung game. Can we be really, though? Wouldn’t you also probably panic and throw the ball straight into the ground in front of you in a moment of spastic humiliation? Wouldn’t your sweaty nervous hands and complete lack of baseball skills make you embarrass yourself in front of everyone you know and now the world?

You know they would. Your voice is your instrument, girl, not your throwing arm! We are all Jessica now!
