Gallery: Fun Sports For Girls, According To The Internet

Last night, while talking to my roommate about how we might be able to get some exercise without running in place at the gym like a couple of goddamn hamsters in a wheel, I started Googling around the internet for suggestions. Terms searched included “fun sports for girls,” “women’s exercise fun,” and “how to get exercise without wanting to kill myself.” The answers I came up with were varied and exciting. Perhaps I’ll even try one of them. More »

Gallery: Let's All Criticize Stella McCartney's New Olympic Uniforms

Stella McCartney unveiled her newly designed uniforms for the UK’s Olympic and Paralympic teams today, and to judge from some of the internet comments I’ve been reading, she made them out of clubbed baby seals dipped in radioactive shit. But while I think they are absolutely fine for something you wear while playing sports, it’s fun to take the piss out of things just for the heck of it. Can I be more ridiculous than the people who are sincerely angry at her? I don’t know, but I’m sure going to try. (I’m sorry, Stella.) More »

Gallery: Michelle Obama Looks Stylish Even When Playing Basketball

At a recent event for her “Let’s Move!” campaign in Charlotte, North Carolina, Michelle Obama looked quite sharp in a white button-down, black tapered pants, and a few shiny pieces of jewelry. Of course, true beauty comes from within, and Michelle Obama seems to have a lovely heart, too, what with helping children stay healthy and all. “There’s no better way than basketball to illustrate the point (of staying healthy.) We are a basketball family and my husband is a crazy fanatic about basketball,” she said, before totally dominating the court. Plus, she hugged some adorable kids. Take a look! More »

Gallery: Katy Perry's Diplomatic Superbowl Outfit From Every Angle

Amid all the fuss about Madonna‘s uninspired halftime performance and M.I.A.‘s “fuck you” to America, it would be easy to forget the terrible outfit Katy Perry wore to perform at the Superbowl’s pre-game show. But that would be a shame, because it’s one of my favorite fashion disasters so far this month! It’s terrible because it looks like a slutty football uniform, and football is a barbaric, life-ruining bloodsport. It’s also terrible because her outfit reps the Giants and the Patriots equally, and fence-sitters are cowards. Click through to see it from every ridiculous angle. More »

The 14 Most Ridiculous Costumes From The Giants vs. Patriots Game (Of Football)

It’s a well-known fact among people who know me that I hate football. When my boyfriend revealed to me that he needed to watch “the game” while we were away on vacation this past weekend, it was like he’d torn off his human face to reveal himself to be some sort of alien/insect creature, so I promptly inserted my earplugs and started reading a book about masochism. (True story!) But the people who go to football games often wear things that showcase how much most straight dudes suck at costumes, and I think that’s funny, so here are some pictures. More »

British College Girls Raise Money For Their Team By Taking Off Their Clothes

British College Girls Raise Money For Their Team By Taking Off Their Clothes

Girls should always be encouraged to take to sports should they want to, and even though many teams manage to be not as well funded as those of the boys, being innovative with ways to make money for the team is very much a part of academic sportsmanship. Bake sales and even racy car washes are what I remember from my own high school and college experiences, but some netball players from the Bristol University decided to bare a lot for a fundraising calendar.
