Jon Stewart Breaks Down the FIFA Scandal

Understanding a decades-in-the-making scandal like the current FIFA investigation can be pretty confusing, especially for those who aren't particularly soccer-obsessed (read: most Americans). But don't worry if you're in the dark—Jon Stewart explained the situation in such a way last night that even the most sporting-event-averse types can easily comprehend what's going on. "FIFA is so bad, they got arrested by the Swiss," he said. "A country whose official policy on Nazi gold was, and I quote, 'We'll allow it.'" Stewart then launched into a short one-man play, FIFA: A 24-Year Sting Operation (involving many wigs, a pair of see more

People Are Freezing Their Asses Off Surfing in Winter

Pictured: Kachemak Bay in Homer, Alaska You would think the hardest part about surfing in 40-degree water is taking that first headache-inducing plunge. But if you talk to pro surfer Pat Millin, he'll tell you it's psyching yourself up to open the car door. "A lot of times I'm sitting in my car and it's freezing inside, and I'm like, 'Man, I'm not going.' It takes a lot to get out of the car and put a wet suit on when there's snow on the beach." Millin is from Southern California but has traveled to Norway's Lofoten Islands—"the Arctic Hawaii"—seven see more

Lululemon Is So Much More Than Yoga Pants

It's no secret that athletic apparel has made the jump from niche market to an integral part of the broader fashion conversation. Brands like Public School, Tim Coppens, Dries Van Noten, and Lanvin (to name only a few) have lifted fabrics and design flourishes that were once appropriate only for your workout and incorporated them into their own higher-end offerings. Of course, there's a whole slew of brands—think Nike and Adidas—who make a bulk of their wares with gym-bound athletes in mind. But expect to hear a lot more from a relative newcomer, Vancouver-based Lululemon in the future, more than see more

You'd think a couple of pro football players wouldn't be fazed by a little video-game violence, but even Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski were taken aback by the brutality of the as-yet-unreleased Mortal Kombat X on Late Night With Conan O'Brien. In fact, at one point (following a rather grisly disembowelment) the Seahawks running back had to step away from the controller, saying, "That's nasty, man. I'm not here to see that! Y'all are tripping, man." The idea, of course, was to see how the two players fared in a virtual face-off before Sunday's showdown on the field, but see more

David Beckham: Coolest Stay-at-Home Dad Ever

Any wannabe soccer stars/underwear models who dream about trading lives with David Beckham might want to start casting about for a new idol . . . unless playing chauffeur to a pack of kids is part of said fantasy. Chatting with Jimmy Kimmel last night, the retired athlete revealed that he now spends most of his time driving his four kids with Victoria Beckham (sons Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz and daughter Harper) to school and soccer practice: "I'm literally an Uber driver." An out-of-shape Uber driver, to boot—at least, according to 3-year-old Harper, who recently announced, "Daddy, I love see more

Sport and style don't always intersect, but with Super Bowl XLIX looming, fashion brands are vying to capitalize on football's final showdown.
