  2. Dear British People: Stop Making Fun of Us for Saying “Soccer,” Because You Invented the Word

    We learned it from watching you, okay?? WE LEARNED IT FROM WATCHING YOU.

    It's known internationally as football, because of course it is—it's a game where you kick a ball around with your feet. But in 'Merica, it's called "soccer," and we get an endless amount of heat from the rest of the world because of it. But it's not our fault, guys! As always, it's England's fault.

  3. Sir Patrick Stewart & Sir Ian McKellen Are A Little Confused About This Whole Super Bowl Thing

    I See What They Did There

    I don't know a lot about American football but I probably know less about the World Cup, or whatever. Talk to me about Quidditch and we're cool. Anyway, Sirs Stewart and McKellan are having a bit of fun with the Super Bowl here. I approve.

  4. Princess The Football-Predicting Camel Has Passed Away, We Might As Well Cancel The Super Bowl

    God needed another 2,000 pound camel angel.

    Sports fans everywhere might not realize that for the past twenty years, the success of their favorite football teams was dependent on the will and predictions of an unlikely source: a 2,000 pound camel named Princess.

  5. Man Plays Soccer for 90 Minutes Without Realizing There’s a Bullet Lodged in His Skull

    I don't think this is what they usually mean by "shots on goal."

    A Bosnian man played a full soccer match with a 9mm bullet in his head this past weekend, and only discovered it when complaining about a headache. While some soccer players are masters of making dramatic flops, he managed to make getting shot in the head one of the least dramatic injuries on record. And he only let up one goal, too.

  6. College Football Coach Uses Drone To Get Overhead View of Players, Terrify Other Team

    Adding robots to things is a pretty good way to get my attention. Although I usually don't have any interest in college football, this week a coach at the University of Tennessee wanted an overhead view of his team, so he rented a drone to get it done. It's difficult to tell from the Vine coach Butch Jones posted on Twitter, but I think we've seen this particular drone before.

  7. Detroit Lions Sign YouTube Sensation as Their New Kicker

    We don't typically pay much attention to sports news here at Geekosystem. Our friends at SportsGrid do a great job of covering that stuff, but this is a prime example of worlds colliding. The Detroit Lions just signed YouTube sensation Havard "Kickalicious" Rugland as their new kicker. They'll really clean up this season if the NFL changes its rules to include casually kicking a football with the back of your foot into an open garbage can.

  8. We Love Playing Games, But Why Do Humans Play At All?

      Here at Geekosystem we love games. Video games, board games, card games, really any way we can assert our dominance over each other here at headquarters. We haven't thought much about what makes a game, but thankfully Vsauce has. Their new video looks at what separates games from other forms of entertainment and challenges, and they even explain why soccer is football and football is soccer.

  9. Just Add Water: Seattle Seahawks Really Do Play Better at Home in Rain and Snow

    Hailing from Washington, I can happily confirm that yes, as you may have heard, it rains quite a bit there. Somehow, though, we mostly get by just fine. Now, a University of Washington meteorologist has run the numbers to find that our NFL team has not only found ways to live with the rainy, wet conditions that are par for the course in the Northwest -- they actually thrive in them. The playoff bound Seattle Seahawks are more likely to win home games in rain or snow, and not by just a little.

  10. ESPN Sportscasters Pack as Many The Princess Bride References Into Their Half-Hour Show as Possible. And it’s Glorious.

    Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

    We don't post all that much football-related stuff on The Mary Sue—that's more sister site's SportsGrid's beat—but when a trio of sportscasters pack a good 18 The Princess Bride references into a half-hour show… well… how can we resist? Buzzfeed put together this compilation of all the references from Sunday's NFL Kickoff on ESPN, and I've gotta say, it's pretty impressive. They kept it to two "Inconceivable"s and even worked in the ROUSes. That's dedication.
