  1. American Astronauts Get Heads Shaved After World Cup Defeat

    Important note: They basically use a Flowbee in space.

    As you probably know, the US lost to Germany in the World Cup the other day. As we mentioned, astronauts on the International Space Station had a bet on the game, and since the US lost Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson had their heads shave by German astronaut Alexander Gerst.

  2. American and German Astronauts Play Soccer in Space, Have a Head-Shaving Bet on Today’s World Cup Match

    Soccer! In! Spaaaaaaaaace!

    I may not care about Earthbound soccer, but I could watch ISS astronauts Steve Swanson (left), Alexander Gerst (middle), and Reid Wiseman (right) play it in space all day long. Swanson and Wiseman are American and Gerst is German, and they've made a pretty interesting bet on today's match.

  3. Game of Thrones Soccer Outfits So You Can Pretend You Care About the World Cup

    Yeah, I said "soccer," not "football." Come at me. I'll go Ramsay Snow all over you.

    Or maybe I, a person whose knowledge of the World Cup extends to the fact that Sir Patrick Stewart Tweeted about it, am just projecting. Soccer. Pah. I have movies to watch. But hey! Nice outfits by Nerea Palacios. Team Stark will get decimated early on (...England?). Team Bolton will make it pretty far in despite the fact that everyone hates them. Just like... c'mon, sports people, help me out.

  4. 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.

  5. Science Finally Proves That Lumberjacking Is More Manly Than Sports

    Express your rage against the trees.

    It seems the popular association between testosterone, the hormone associated with masculinity, and competition, may be overstated. Scientists studying an isolated population in Bolivia found that men engaged in competitive sports got a measurably lower boost in testosterone than those who chopped down trees, a non-competitive activity.

  6. 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.

  7. We’ve Found Will Smith’s Weakness! Watch The Fresh Prince Be Bad At Soccer!

    We love watching Will Smith do fun Will Smith things, but it turns out we also like to watch him be bad at soccer.

    Yesterday we celebrated Will Smith and his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion on The Graham Norton Show, so it's only fair to share this video of him absolutely failing at soccer. His son Jaden takes a crack at it too, and although he doesn't score, he clearly shows up his old man. The announcer even calls out Will, saying his kick was worse than Diana Ross's attempt. Sick burn.

  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. SOCCKET Power-Generating Soccer Ball Gets a Kickstarter to Expand Distribution

    SOCCKET is one of the neater ideas in green energy I've been following lately. A durable soccer ball that houses a small generator, SOCCKET gets charged up when kids play with it -- just 30 minutes of getting kicked around provides enough juice to power the included LED lamp for up to three hours. The project has been tested, revamped and improved in communities around the developing world, and as of this week, they're trying to boost their ability to produce the power-generating playthings with a Kickstarter that's worth at least your attention -- and probably a little bit of your money, too.

  10. Watch Kids Play “Flaming Fireball” A.K.A. Soccer with a Flaming Coconut [Video]

    Soccer (or football, if you prefer) a global pastime. It only makes sense that, over time, different parts of the world come up with different variations on the game, whether in the form of a new set of rules or maybe -- why the hell are those kids kicking a flaming coconut?!
