How to have fun rooting for the evil sports team that everyone else hates

The Super Bowl is on Sunday and, unlike the majority of my fellow Americans, I will be rooting for the New England Patriots.

Why the hell are Scandinavians insanely good at making addictive mobile games?

It used to be that Scandinavians had a reputation for being fierce viking warriors — now the only time most of them dress up with horned helmets and bear pelts is if they’re LARPing or playing Skyrim. This doesn’t mean we should dismiss Scandinavians as hapless dweebs, however, because they’ve found nonviolent ways of conquering the world in the 21st century in the form of addictive mobile games.

T-Mobile’s going to have a tough time fixing its biggest weakness

Tesla’s hugely anticipated Model X gets caught on video

Tesla first unveiled its Model X crossover utility vehicle (CUV) back in 2012, although it’s not set to release until later this year. Given that the car is fairly close to launch it’s not surprising to see Tesla testing it out on the road and Seth Weintraub at Electrek directs our attention to new video that shows the Model X going on a test run at the  Alameda Airport test track in California.

Video: Watch Marshawn Lynch and Gronk play Mortal Kombat on Conan

Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch and Rob Gronkowski are two of the NFL’s most entertaining personalities, although for very different reasons. While Gronk is a gregarious, hard-partying lug, Lynch is often hilariously unfriendly during media interviews and will often respond with a single sentence to every question he gets asked. Conan O’Brien decided to get the two of them together during Super Bowl week down in Arizona to play the yet-to-be-released game Mortal Kombat X and the results were about as amusing as you’d expect.

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Tennis star Novak Djokovic faces off against an M1 Abrams tank

Tennis legend Novak Djokovic has stared down Federer and Nadal… but he’s never faced a foe quite as fearsome as this. YouTube user timtimfed has created a hilarious video in which a digital Vietnam-era M1 Abrams tank is edited in with footage of Djokovic playing a match at the Australian Open. The result shows that Djokovic is more than capable of beating the tank at tennis, although that still doesn’t stop the tank from being a sore loser and blowing him up at the end. More →
