Nearly three thousand athletes have made their way to the Winter Olympic this month, and probably at least a couple are cursing the day they ever decided to become world-class bobsledders: Reports out of Pyeongchang list the temperature at or around a murderous subzero, putting this year’s games on track to be the…
On Friday Aston Martin unveiled the $359,950 Vanquish S Volante Tom Brady Signature Edition, a ridiculous car targeted, I guess, at rich people with no taste who love the Patriots. (Come to think of it, that’s probably a very large market.) Anyway, here come the bad jokes.
Gran Turismo has always skewed more towards the realistic simulation end of the spectrum in order to provide an accurate experience for virtual racers. This year’s version adds another layer to that, in the form of a certification and enforcement of proper “sportsmanship.”
A few years ago I bought a house in Darlington, S.C., a town so small that there was nothing there but a gas station, a McDonald’s, a Huddle House (a bootleg, better-tasting Waffle House—fight me) and the Darlington Raceway, a 58,000-seat NASCAR track. I was shocked to see people the same color as me wearing Dale…
The new story of Detroit is, by now, old. Over several decades, a once prosperous automotive mecca fell into disarray for a litany of reasons—white flight, an eroding tax base, crime—and, after filing for bankruptcy in 2013, has since evolved into a sentimental comeback story for the ages. When a new arena for the…
“That escalated quickly.” I know it’s a cliché, albeit a fitting one for a hill climb race. But it’s all I could think about after our car—a salvage-title C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 street car transformed into a race car in just a few desperate weeks—not only survived the Pikes Peak Hill Climb but finished just one…
The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb makes its return this weekend and if qualifying is a preview of what’s to come, it looks like records will be broken once again. The action kicks off tomorrow morning, so here’s how to watch.
James Hillier looked like he was headed for a fifth-gear wipeout at the deadly dangerous Isle of Man TT when his bike got sideways on a jump early in the race. Incredibly, Hillier was able to hold on and steady the wildly bucking motorcycle (extra points for the leg wave) and continue on its way.
Golfing gear is about as stereotypical as Father’s Day gifts can get, but this Callaway home range practice system actually looks really cool. $113 gets you a net, a hitting mat, and a caddy/feeder that can hold 35 balls and drop them onto the hitting zone with a tap of a club.
It’s a little puzzling that Amazon would run an NCAA apparel sale after all but 12 schools have been eliminated from the tournament, but better late than never, I guess.
I love surprises. Underdog stories. The unexpected. It’s part of why sports are good. That is, unless I picked guy-who-wins-too-much Sébastien Ogier in The Rally Takeover’s Fantasy World Rally Championship game. Then don’t surprise me, or I’ll get mad when lesser-known drivers actually make things interesting.
Are sports games not your thing? Or, perhaps, are you too disappointed with the world around you to even pay attention to them—or anything else, really? This guy, too. Things appear to be so bad, in fact, that he deliberately brought in the owner’s manual for his Volvo and read it during a basketball game.
Numerous genetic surveys have been done on the rabbit, but until this point in history, the potential existence of a clutch gene has been a scientific mystery. Are rabbits reliable performers in the clutch or are they wilting-ass chokers? Finally, we know for sure: Bunnies are weak as hell under pressure.
Need a gift idea for the golfer in your life? Amazon’s Cyber Monday golf sale includes clubs, rangefinders, backyard driving range nets, and more, all marked down to great low prices. These deals are only available today though, so don’t miss your tee time.
Don’t bother holding your breath while you wait for this golf ball to explode under the extreme weight of a stream roller, because it somehow survives being crushed. Apparently the magical rubber compound inside a golf ball that gives it incredible bounce is also incredibly durable.
The University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech have apparently been trying to arrange a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway, located between the schools, for some 20 years. Now it’s finally going to happen, after 19 days of intense preparation. Which you can watch here in about six minutes.
Pro tip to cyclists: sailing through the air horizontally while gripping your handlebars for dear life is the most efficient way downhill.
The 2016 Summer Olympics are here, and the world’s greatest athletes are ready to show us what they’re made of. If you want to catch all the suspense, drama, and victory, but you don’t have cable, here’s how you can medal in streaming for free.
For top runners, like the elite specimens competing in the Olympics, every last thing you wear needs to be engineered for comfort and speed. So Nike and Zeiss took inspiration from human anatomy for a new pair of sunglasses that wrap around an athlete’s head.
