    Mike Tyson appeared on Wednesday’s episode of Law & Order: SVU, and not since Justin Bieber was riddled with police bullets has the small screen been so electrified. In Monster’s Legacy, “Benson and Ellis fight to get a convicted murderer the sentence he deserves.” Here’s Tyson, sans face tattoo, in a excerpt from that episode.…

    File photo of seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong at Tour of California in Visalia

    The funny part is that, technically, Armstrong used PEDs to win this award, too.

    Feb 6, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT


    UFC president Dana White once described Uriah Hall this way: “Every fight he’s in, someone goes to the hospital.” Blatant hype? Maybe not: just look at this video. Hall fought Adam Cella in episode three of the 17th season of UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter, and Hall delivered a knockout that has to be seen to…

    You may remember the California Institute of Technology from its 310-game conference losing streak in men’s basketball, which was broken in 2011. Or how about the women’s volleyball team, which snapped a 56-match losing streak in in 2012? Well, now the CIT record no one thought could be broken has been broken: Cal Tech has…

    Feb 5, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT


    San Francisco sports fans can get rowdy — even ugly. But they generally only go off the deep end following championships. Sunday evening was a relatively quiet in San Francisco, according to police. Only 26 arrests, and nothing very serious. Hey, it’s not like they live in Vancouver. But this did happen: One man, whom…

    Feb 5, 2013, 3:18 PM EDT


    Clarkston High School (Michigan, near Detroit) produced a pretty awesome video to promote its hockey game with Lake Orion High last month. From the Alex Ovechkin imitation to the slammin’ into the boards (lockers) to the Sand People celebration at the end, very entertaining. Oh, and Clarkston ended up winning, 5-3.

    Feb 5, 2013, 12:15 PM EDT


    Nevermind, er, never mind that Ryan Lochte was only seven years old when Nirvana’s Nevermind came out. It’s 22 years later, and Lochte will portray the baby in a re-creation of the classic album cover first released in 1991. Thankfully Lochte did not re-create the cover in every detail. He wore a swimsuit. It’s all…

    Feb 5, 2013, 11:21 AM EDT


    It happened at South El Monte High School (near Los Angeles) earlier this afternoon, when two students suffered severed fingers during a game of tug-of-war. It isn’t known how many were participating in the lunchtime Spirit Week activity, but my guess is quite a lot. Doctors are currently trying to re-attach the fingers, according to…

    Baltimore Ravens punter Sam Koch runs time down for a safety in the final seconds of the game against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL Super Bowl XLVII football game in New Orleans

    Ah, Super Bowl prop bets. How entertaining you are. Those who bet the “over” on the length of the National Anthem are probably sipping champagne from a skinny glass right now … as are those who bet that the final score of the game would be a safety. Nevada sports books took a bath on…

    Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show

    I’m not sure whose idea it was to have the Super Bowl in an outdoor stadium in New Jersey in February, but whoever it was, let me congratulate that man. According to the New York Post, it’s a possibility that there will be no Super Bowl halftime show in 2014. The reason? It will be…

Kobayashi attended a Super Bowl party where, as seen in the video below, he downed an entire medium Domino’s pizza in one minute. Caution: some mildly NSFW language. Keep…

  16. Getting run over by a tractor is just one of the many exciting events at the Indian Rural Olympics

    Feb 4, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    India Rural Olympics

    Yes, this is actually an event at the Indian Rural Olympics, held each year in Kila Raipur, near Ludhiana, India: and if this guy didn’t win a gold medal, I’d hate to see who did. These are the Olympics in which villagers display their strength in appalling interesting ways, such as allowing a tractor carrying…

  17. Michelle Obama praises Beyonce halftime show: ‘I’m so proud of her’

    Feb 4, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Michelle Obama

    I’ll have to take her word on this, as I didn’t see the Super Bowl halftime show. In fact, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a Super Bowl halftime show, so Beyonce fans, don’t feel slighted. Anyway, the First Lady thought it was terrific, and that’s good enough for me. I am also counting on…

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT


    Saying that “Nothing masks the bitter taste of defeat quite like the sweet taste of pudding,” Jell-O is making a pretty savvy post-Super Bowl marketing move by sending truckloads of free pudding to San Francisco on Tuesday. Dear Jell-O: please replace the word “pudding” with “booze”. Thank you. But your reaction may be different, so…

    Feb 4, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT


    And unless you live in certain parts of Oklahoma, Texas or Montana, you did. Will Ferrell did a Super Bowl commercial for Old Milwaukee for the second year in a row, but again it was regional: last year’s only aired in the North Platte, Neb. market. This year’s was seen in a bigger market, but…

    The lights stayed on and there were no controversial pass interference non-calls, although there was occasional hoarding of the fleece squirrel (see photo).

    You’re taking a big gamble when you name your kid Fenway Parks. What if it turns out that baseball isn’t his sport? That’s a life sentence to ridicule right there. But fortunately for him, Fenway Parks is good at baseball — so much so that the junior second baseman at Spanish River Community High School…

    Feb 4, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT


    It reportedly took 65 takes to get the kiss just right, but Super Bowl viewers were not impressed. The GoDaddy commercial in which supermodel Bar Refaeli kissed “computer nerd” Jesse Heiman (video below) finished last in the USA Today Ad Meter rankings released last night. First place? That went to Budweiser’s “Horse and trainer united”,…

  24. Twitter reaction to Super Bowl power outage was pretty hilarious

    Feb 3, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT


    Wouldn’t you know it? Just as Manti Teo’s girlfriend was about to make her appearance at the Super Bowl, the lights went out (see photo below). What a shame: will we never get to see her? Still no official word on what caused the 30-plus minute power outage at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during the third…
