    It was a grainy cellphone video and a picture that were seen by millions around the world. But the full story of how Beyoncé was unwittingly dragged into a political row after having her Super Bowl performance hijacked by her dancers and activists can be revealed. The star knew nothing about the decision by members of her dance troupe to join a protest by members of the Black Lives Matters organization on the pitch of the Levi's Stadium about the death of Mario Jones until the video went viral the next morning.

    he Super Bowl is an annual celebration of Just Guy Things: homoerotic tight pants, dude-on-dude grappling, sports, balls, brews, and chili. Conversely, the Super Bowl halftime show is an incredibly flamboyant tribute to all things over the top, featuring big-name celebrities, elaborate pyrotechnics, and some of the best wardrobes (and wardrobe malfunctions) this side of the 2001 VMAs. No one has ever adequately explained the pairing of these two inherently disparate spectacles, and it’s difficult to imagine the Venn diagram of dedicated sports enthusiasts and people who are psyched to watch an extended Bruno Mars medley. Nonetheless we, the non-sports...

    Open bowl thread Late second quarter, refs wave off a BYU defensive pass interference after claim ball was tipped. (Instant replay -- no tip at line...only tip by BYU interception player...result? Free ref-provided td for BYU) Otherwise...hi-scoring first half. BYU...first 1 1/2 quarters...an unsportmanslike conduct penalty...an unnecessary roughness penalty...a facemask penalty...A real testimony, I would say. Commentators mentioned penalties been an issue for BYU during season.

    The Robertson family's sports interests will soon span from NASCAR to college football. Willie Robertson's Duck Commander company has signed a six-year deal, giving the duck call and hunting business the naming rights to the Independence Bowl. Duck Dynasty (Photo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKoOLJKbxCE) The game, which is played in Shreveport, La., the home state of the A&E reality television Robertson family, was previously sponsored by AdvoCare V100. According to ESPN, the Duck Commander Independence Bowl will feature SEC and ACC match-ups. If neither league offers a representative, teams representing the Conference USA and the American will also be considered. Duck Commander's current...

    For the first time since the BCS held its first "national championship" game after the 1998 season, there won't be any bowl game that can realistically be portrayed as a "national championship" game. This year's game can only be considered as giving the University of Alabama an opportunity to avenge its loss against Louisiana State University(LSU). The two schools can only play for the championship of the western division of the Southeast Conference(SEC). Alabama cannot even claim the championship of the SEC from a victory because that would require Alabama to defeat eastern division champion , the University of Georgia....

    TAKE one squid, cut off its head and watch the rest dance on a bed of rice and salmon roe. Eat. Or not. This Japanese delicacy known as odori-don or dancing squid rice bowl is a variation on traditional squid sashimi and uses soy sauce to create the disturbing illusion of bringing a dead squid back to life.YouTube user Richard Fan shot the above video on a visit to Hokkaidos Ikkatei Tabiji restaurant and explains that sodium in the soy causes neurons to fire, making the muscles twitch.The dish comes with the head cut into small sashimi slices and...

    s FOX Network puts the finishing touches on its advertisement lineup for the February 6th Super Bowl arguably as popular a part of the evening as the game itself one thing is certain: just about any thing will be permissible in the way of sex, sleaze, and crude humor. Apparently, however, one type of ad will not be permitted: those promoting positive values and faith in God. Following last years media furor over a Focus on the Family-sponsored pro-life spot during the Super Bowl featuring Christian football phenomenon Tim Tebow (left) and his mother, FOX has put the...
