Watchability: Kung-fu kicks and kangaroos

Seriously, Tim Cahill is a damn kangaroo.

Watchability: Brazil vs. Croatia

There's only one game on Thursday, and it's a good one.

MATLOCK VS. THE NCAA

THIS TRIAL IS DUMB, MATLOCK WOULD HAVE THIS ICED UP IN 5 MINUTES

Barkley Marathon documentary is predictably insane

+

Just stay awake for 60 hours and run 100 miles through absolutely impossible terrain, and you've got it

For the person with zero going on in their life

Zerolife

At last, the beverage for the person who doesn't want to leave a single percentage point unused, but wants that perfect ZERO LIFE. (Via Paul.)

NICK SABAN LOOKS AWESOME IN A BOAT

862

THAT'S THE WHOLE THESIS. HE LOOKS FANTASTIC AT SEA.

John Oliver describes every sports fan everywhere

FIFA makes it easy, but John Oliver might be talking about your sport, too

THE MC IS PLAYING MINECRAFT

BUT KENTUCKY ALREADY HAS AN IMAGINARY FOOTBALL STADIUM

Who to root for in the World Cup, in one chart

This one flowchart will help you decide where your World Cup rooting interests lie, and which team is you personified.

Rio World Cup prep, chapter four: Arnold goes to Rio

+

We're sure this is EXACTLY what Rio is going to look like, even thirty years later and without a completely uncouth Arnold Schwarzenegger driving shirtless in a dune buggy.

OLE MISS RECLAIMS MULTIPLE TITLES

A DISASTROUS CHARGE AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT A FUMBLE

BOW BEFORE YOUR NEW HYPE VIDEO GOD

MIKE THE TIGER SAYS YOU DON'T SAY A SEVEN MINUTE HYPE VIDEO WELL SURE I WILL

Mario Kart time trials: a real thing

+

It took me until the release of Mario Kart 8 to realize competitive time-trialing was a real thing-- like, enough of a thing to merit a Wiki entry on the depth of real, live tactics for it. That clip is not from a time trial, but is a reminder that Luigi leads the game in sheer cold killing rage.

How long could you make it as an NFL coach?

You wake up in the body of a man trying to survive the rigors of an NFL season. How long do you make it?

Notes on Kanye West's wedding/NFL audition

Kanye would be an amazing NFL owner, and his wedding planning skills and management prove it

BAMA NEEDS AN OPPONENT. THERE IS ONLY ONE ANSWER

978

WHAT HAS TWO EYES, FEATHERS, AND IS UNDEFEATED AGAINST THE CRIMSON TIDE?

Imagine, a sane thing about Johnny Manziel

+

I'm a 26-year-old professional, and I promise you that the whole pool knew I was having a great time. If I could go back tomorrow, I would. I'll have to wait until July instead.

This is the first sane thing written about Johnny Manziel in the history of mainstream sports journalism. It is also set in a poolside concert by Kendrick Lamar, which seems like the least exciting and oddest place to see a Kendrick Lamar concert. The best place to see a Kendrick Lamar concert? In a club in London, of course.

HATIN' ASS SPURRIER SURVEYS THE WORLD CUP

WATCH WHO YOU BITE, LUIS SUAREZ

An important note on video gaming

1

If you're SHAUN gonna release a SHAUUNNNN great video game like Ubisoft SHAUUUUUN does every few years, make sure you SHAUUUUUUN make the viewer feel comfortable with a few glitches to SHAAUUUUUNNNNN let them know that even great artists and engineers are human. (via @claesbell) P.S. SHAAUUUUUUNNNNNN

THE MC PLAYS A GUESSING GAME

995

LET'S PLAY A GUESSING GAME

The Pacers are the NBA's bworst team

The self-destructing Pacers are the best worst team in the NBA, a team so unhappy they'll suck you in for a night of hatewatching their absolute disgust for each other.

CM Punk may actually be punk

+

But it’s a testament to his strength of character that he simply walked away instead of just crafting shoddy work and cashing checks.

This Martin Douglas piece on CM Punk makes the case that CM Punk is, well, actually pretty punk in terms of how he got into wrestling in the first place, and why he's been missing for four months. (Which may not just be about a contract dispute.)

THE HALL OF FAME OF THAT GUY

WHO? OH YEAH, THAT DUDE

It's a family car (from hell)

+

The 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat's engine note sounds like what we imagine time ripping sounds like, but can a Challenger take a car seat? Wait: you're saying it can? You're saying it's a family car, for a family man, and it's in my driveway and all my money is gone and it has blown out the windows in my house and it was worth it. It was all TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Adam Muema's story gets weird(er)

+

Saw you weren't at pro day. Want to meet up somewhere for lunch and chat? A few minutes later, he wrote back. I'm watching you just can't see me.

Kevin Van Valkenberg tried to track down former San Diego State University running back Adam Muema after he missed the NFL combine and began posting strange religious messages online. It starts with the bizarre, and only gets weirder from there.

Irony is a difficult concept

+

Please allow me to rant for a moment about the state of the media.

Sure, guy who works for the thing that encourages the very thing you're complaining about, and that probably funds the luxury car you drive back and forth to work in while weeping into a fistful of wadded up dollar bills. (Note: please share this on Facebook.)

GIVE BARRY SWITZER A CROWN ROYAL PLZ

Screen_shot_2014-05-22_at_10.22.06_am

Barry Switzer going Crown Royal on the rocks in under five minutes on a recruiting trip? A very real and spectacular thing, per Bill Goldberg and his amazing trapezius muscles in an interview about his college recruitment. He also talks about how standing on a bar holding a bottle of Wild Turkey clinched his commitment to Georgia, in case you wonder why Athens works the way it does.
