More like loser bowl. Too soft and boring—hard to watch. Terrible for ratings. Not like DONALD TRUMP!
It can be a pain in the ass to stream live sports, but this year’s Super Bowl 50 will be easy to watch on February 7, even without a cable subscription. This is a fantastic innovation, because it means cordcutters will spend less time agonizing over how to watch the Denver Broncos play the Carolina Panthers and more…
In the shadow of the Super Bowl, unrest and citizen distrust are on the rise in San Francisco. Under the cruel hand of the NFL, the city by the bay has become virtually indistinguishable from the urban hellscapes of dystopian fiction.
You probably go to church every Sunday. But Super Bowl Sunday is different. Your living room becomes your temple, and the only gods your worshiping are the ones decked out in plastic shoulder pads showing early onset of dementia.
Sports writer Michael MacCambridge wrote, “The Super Bowl contains multitudes; it has always exemplified America at its best, America at its worst, and more than anything else, America at its most.”
Amazon Echo’s added a lot of neat abilities since its launch in 2014, but this just might be the laziest of them all: Alexa can now order pizza. Mmm, delicious technological progress.
In January the NFL Network broadcast the first ever replay of Super Bowl I, contested 49 years ago between the NFL’s Green Bay Packers and AFL’s Kansas City Chiefs. But as the league’s press release notes, it wasn’t a replay of the original broadcast. Instead, they located “all 145 plays from Super Bowl I from more…
The Super Bowl is less than a week away, and that means it’s time to throw out everything you own and start living like a real American—with a brand new home entertainment system plopped right in the middle of your living room. Sure, you could probably get by streaming the game on a laptop, but it’s 2016. Why not…
San Francisco is bracing itself to host the 50th Super Bowl, but Denver and Charlotte are going to be seeing a real uptick in mortality rates. It seems that if your team is playing in the Super Bowl, your chances of catching a deadly flu go up, albeit slightly.
And here we thought taking down the transit wires would be the worst of it. San Francisco is under siege from the NFL and the people who live there don’t like this one bit. Behold the devastation that Super Bowl 50 hath wrought upon a little city named Frisco.
One of the more memorable moments from last night's Super Bowl—at least before the end of the fourth quarter—was the latest Snickers ad that co-opted The Brady Bunch into selling candy bars. But if you thought the ad just used some clever editing and dubbing, over on FXGuide they have a thorough break-down of the…
It might seem like LED bulbs are only for early-adopters hoping to cut down their monthly Con Ed power bill, but come Sunday, the energy-efficient lighting alternative will take center stage at one of the greatest spectacles on Earth. This will actually be the first Super Bowl to be entirely lit by LED bulbs.
The FAA sent us a bit more detail about why it's banning drones at Sunday's Super Bowl. As you may have predicted, the ban stems from legislation passed after 9/11.
You may have heard about the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) quietly declaring that this year's Super Bowl will be a "no drone zone." You may not have heard just how big that no drone zone will be. It's 60 miles wide. The no drone zone is larger than the city of Phoenix. Seems a little bit absurd, huh?
If you're one of the many Americans who couldn't care less which group of grown men is better at surprise bear hugs and rolling in the grass, Dish DVR is granting you a big Super Bowl surprise with Reverse AutoHop. Now, you can cut out all that garbage football from this year's Super Bowl, and gorge yourself on…
Say what you will about the actual beer, but Bud Light has made some pretty memorable Super Bowl commercials over the years. And for this year's big game they've made every child of the '80s' dream come true by building a human-sized version of Pac-Man that even has challengers battling giant glowing ghosts while…
The Northeast may have had its fun mocking the South's recent descent into chaos in the face of snow, but now it's our turn to fall apart. This newest storm has shut down I-84—one of the region's biggest highways—and crippled countless other roads. The culprit? We're running out of salt.
How the Super Bowl failed its transit-riding attendees, an L.A. museum that collects houses, and why Monarch butterflies are dying (spoiler: because of us). Plus a McDonald's in Queens, Millennials in St. Louis, and biking in Las Vegas. It's time for your weekly Urban Reads.
