Wait, what?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 +?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 15 Female Athletes You Should Know At the Sochi Olympics

    Power Grid

    The opening ceremony doesn't take place until tomorrow, but sporting events at the 2014 Sochi Olympics start today. And you know what that means for us nerds: The beginning of the only time when a lot of us, myself included, ever give a flip about anything sports-related. I will fully admit to being pretty damn sports-clueless. But I've bitten the bullet, taken advantage of my research skills, and compiled this list female athletes that you, my nerdy brethren, should keep an eye on at Sochi. We feel it's important to acknowledge and appreciate the women who have worked so hard to reach the pinnacle of their chosen sports, but while we cheer for their potential and their victories, we should remember that they stand in contrast to the many Russian citizens in crisis as their government turns a blind eye to widespread violent acts against he LGBTQ community there. Here, then, are 15 ladies you should keep an eye on until the Olympics end on February 23rd. Then we can go back to only caring about games with the words "video" or "tabletop" in front of them.

  7. Here’s How to Watch Today’s Super Bowl Commercials Without Watching the Dumb Super Bowl

    Football is the worst kind of ball.

    You may have noticed a common thread in today's Geekosystem posts. That thread, of course, is that football is boring. That's because it is. Commercials that air during the Super Bowl tend to be pretty good, and for years we've had to suffer through football to see them. No more. Here's how to watch just the commercials.

  8. Hawk-Eye,The Line-Calling Sports Camera, Might Not Be As Accurate As We All Thought

    But is it great at boats?

    Today we learned two things: one, that the device used to make  line-calls in tennis is very appropriately called "Hawk-Eye." Two, it's probably made a whole bunch of bad calls that we weren't aware of until just now. Whoops. Sorry, Barton. How 'bout we give you, like, an extra ten seconds of screen time in Avengers 2 to make up for it?

  9. College Athletes Upset Over Chess Billboard, Overreact on Twitter

    Or maybe you could just be proud that your chess team is incredible.

    A group of college students at Webster University in Missouri had their feelings hurt because a billboard advertising the school focuses on two members of the chess team dressed as if they're about to play a more physical game. Grumpy student athletes took to Twitter to vent their feelings and the results make for a bizarre and interesting read.

  10. Schadenfreude Found To Be Biological In Nature, Linked To Feelings Of Envy

    So all those haters really are just jealous.

    What is best in life? According to both Conan the Barbarian and researchers at Princeton University, it's crushing your enemies, seeing them driven before you, and hearing the lamentation of their women. Or, well, knowing that they have been crushed, at least.
