  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. 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.

  4. Robocop Will Throw the First Pitch at a Baseball Game Tonight, but the Robocop Statue Will Have to Wait

    Unless it breaks the law, then Robocop will escort the baseball to jail.

    Tonight at a Detroit Tigers (they are not real tigers, but humans) basesball match against the Toronto Blue Jays (we've yet to confirm whether they are birds or humans) Robocop will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, possibly at a criminal.

  5. Scripps National Spelling Bee Ends in (Adorable) Tie For First Time In 52 Years

    Stalemate: s-t-a-i-doh!

    Today in sports we care about, last night's 89th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee was one for the books. For the first time since '62, two charmingly precocious smartypants tied for first place in what co-winner Sriram Hathwar described as a "competition against the dictionary, not each other."

  6. Extreme Pogo Sticking Now a Thing the Youth Are Doing [Video]

    But I'm still making peace with parkour!

    I must be getting old/less awesome, because I was not aware that there was such a thing as "extreme pogo." If you're similarly unhip, then allow this short film from Xpogo to educate you. I'm not up on my slang, but I'm guessing a cooligan is a cool hooligan? Or a cool kid in a cardigan? Probably that last one.

  7. Baseball Is Boring, but Dinosaur Baseball Is Our New Favorite Sport

    Now replace all the other people with dinosaurs and play ball!

    The Padres are a baseball team made up entirely of peoples' dads (we think) and also they have a freaking dinosaur. Watch their dino toss out the ceremonial first pitch, which should have been the last pitch, because what idiots would go up against a team with a dinosaur? What's the name of the Padres' baseballing stadium? Oh right: Jurassic Park.

  8. Everyone, Quiet! David Tennant Is Talking! About Xbox Kinect Sports! [VIDEO]

    Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

    Doctor Who/Broadchurch/Gracepoint star David Tennant is lending his vocal talents to Kinect Sports Rivals, a game debuting next month on Xbox One. I don't care about sports but I do care about David Tennant and his wonderful voice. Hmm, torn. Either way, watch this video, he's adorable and you'll learn what the last video game he played was. Hint: His answer made me flail. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  9. AsapSCIENCE Explains the Diet of Olympic Athletes

    Daily AsapSCIENCE vids are our favorite thing about the Olympics.

    What should Olympic athletes eat? What do Olympic athletes eat? As part of their daily series of Olympic videos, AsapSCIENCE tackles the question of Olympic diet, and how it changes from athlete to athlete and sport to sport. Sports aren't really our thing, but we sure do love science and food.

  10. Can Music Improve Athletic Performance? AsapSCIENCE Explains [Video]

    So that's why the Pacific Rim theme song makes me run faster.

    In honor of the Olympics, AsapSCIENCE has been putting out more interesting videos than usual, and we totally love them for it. Not as much as we love jamming out to some hardcore tunes while we're working out, though. Good think AsapSCIENCE is here to tell us why that is in the first place.
