In many ways Nintendo 64 turned the page on modern entertainment, with some arguing it was the most important piece of machinery in mankind and an engineering marvel.
Using those same ambitious principles, this revolutionary fine gentleman, Mark Haggett, constructed a beautifully pristine piece of furniture: The Custom N64 Table.
Thousands of guys would gladly hand over their 401k...
The 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain is set to begin next month and the curiosity over the United States’ uniform design is over, as Nike leaked photos on Thursday.
While they are not terribly flashy, the red, white and blue are very tastefully done.

Lotte Giants infielder Hwang Jae Gyun showed how not to slide in a recent Korean Baseball Organization game. Gyun got a little too carried away with sliding “headfirst” into third base, and above you can see the embarrassing moment in slow-mo, with banjo music playing. The slide left Gyun’s chin in bad shape: [Deadspin] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
While basketball fans continue to hold their breath waiting for Lebron’s imminent “Decision 2.0″ regarding where he’ll be playing basketball next year and beyond, the folks at Tide have used the opportunity to do a little creative advertising.
They posted this tweet on Thursday afternoon:

It’s not a huge secret that Robin Thicke’s latest album Paula has not fared well from a sales standpoint. Maybe people are still getting over their ‘Blurred Lines’ hangover. Maybe people are a bit uncomfortable with how Thicke has seemingly used the album’s promotional campaign as a way to pressure his ex, Paula Patton, to get back together with him.
“Since Thicke and...
Okay, this is pretty cool. Cambridge University Press has just released this awesome table that shows the top three adjectives used to describe each country that participated in the World Cup.
“Bite” for Uruguay
“Money” for Ghana
And, of course, “determined,” heroic,” and “courageous” used to describe the U.S., which might be the most American thing...

SportsNation harnessed the power of Twitter to turn LeBron James’ Non-Decision into a trending hashtag movement with #BeforeLeBronDecides and people unsurprisingly delivered. Here are some of the best reactions to LeBron not making a free agency...
After Manchester United unveiled their new Chevy kits earlier this week, Arsenal held a big unveiling party on Thursday night to show off their own new kits they’ll be suiting up in starting next season as well.
The Gunners have ditched Nike and signed a big deal with Puma, who have produced the new kits. The biggest difference that stands out to me with the new threads is the...
Twenty-one year old forward Tomas Jurco is one of the more promising prospects in the Detroit Red Wings organization. The youngster posted 17 points in 36 games for the Wings last year and he should continue to improve on his contributions to the team moving forward.
On Wednesday, however, he showcased a little bit of the showmanship that has wowed hockey fans for years. Jurco shared...

Look at all these hopeful/desperate Cavaliers fans parked outside LeBron’s house in Bath. They do know that he isn’t even at home, right?

There’s only one game remaining in the 2014 World Cup — well, there are technically two games left, but who actually cares about the third place game? — but don’t fret. The Women’s World Cup is just a year away. And, here is the official poster:
If you didn’t watch the last Women’s World Cup, you missed out big time. It’s the tournament that saw the U.S. escape via...

New Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins doesn’t seem interested in making quick friends in his new NFL city. As the city of Cleveland shuts down until LeBron James makes his decision, Hawkins decided to play a harmless prank on the tired city’s fans.

It’s strange but “The Decision 2″ is turning out to be a huger ********* than the first “Decision” and that’s with LeBron James doing everything possible to stay out of the media spotlight.
The more that LeBron has kept things close to the vest, the crazier the speculation has gotten and all the tweets, “sources” and contradicting reports culminated into one particularly...
This is old — about a year old — but it’s still funny as hell. Last July, Jay and Kristin Cavallari made an appearance on Access Hollywood Live. What followed was a pretty standard interview — questions about marriage, their son, Jay’s fashion, stuff like that. But then, at around the 4:25 mark, the happy couple was asked the following question:
How many boyfriends or girlfriends...
While the world continues to wait for some official LeBron James news, everybody’s favorite Twitter dweeb, Darren Rovell, is randomly spewing information about Brandi Chastain’s famous bra from the 1999 World Cup.
Brandi Chastain once told me she was offered "hundreds of thousands of dollars" for her famous bra. She decided to pass.

Yeah, I know, this video is a month old, but it’s been making the rounds on the Internets lately, so — for those who missed it — I figured I’d share it. Also, consider it a nice respite from all the free agency talk. Over the last couple of years, NBA TV’s brilliant and insightful Open Court has been unarguably the best round table discussion you’ll find regarding every...

A local pub in Galway, Ireland ran a lucratively ambitious promotion during the Brazil-Germany World Cup semifinal match on Tuesday evening. Roisin Dubh offered specials on two beers, one German (Erdinger) and one Brazilian (Brahma), starting at 4 Euros each at the beginning of the match.
For each goal scored, the price would be lowered 50 cents. Five first-half goals later and a...
Perhaps realizing that returning to Akron at this moment would undoubtedly lead to the collective industrial sports complex ******** itself silly for hours all over his hometown, LeBron has wisely decided to avoid that entire potential circus and fly directly to Brazil from Las Vegas.
LeBron James has cancelled plans to return to Akron, per ABJ sources. Now flying directly from Las...
NBA beat writers, national reporters and Internet detectives have spent the last few days — especially the last 24 hours — trying to piece together any clues that might reveal where LeBron James intends to play next season. At this point, it’s safe to say we can narrow it down to two places: Miami and Cleveland.
Apparently, we’ve exhausted almost every resource, because the...
