  • NHL Legends Invade Bryant Park For a Pick-Up Game + Stadium Series Ticket Giveaway

    Yesterday, NHL legends from The New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils invaded Bryant Park in Manhattan for an impromptu pick up game promoting next weeks Stadium Series at Yankee Stadium. Brian Leetch, Mike Richter, Dave Maloney, Ken Daneyko and Grant Marshall were a few of the players involved in the round robin pick-up games. The snow really came down during the game, essentially making the rink a snow globe for the game which could be a possibility for the games. We spoke to Rangers legend and former captain, Brian Leetch about athletes playing in these outdoor conditions and how it can affect their game. “Well I think it would be something similar to the Winter Classic that you saw, they have to get out therea little bit more with the shovels, but this snow is really perfect. The hardest part is looking around having fun then realizing that you’re still playing for those two points that you need for the playoffs, but after your morning skate, you’ve enjoyed your family time and realize that you have to get out there and get ready for the game.” We’re teaming up with the Stadium Series to give two more »

  • Wildlife In Botswana As Seen From the Air [9 Photos]

    From January 15 to February 23, New York City’s Robin Rice Gallery will be exhibiting photographer Zack Seckler’s “Botswana.” To capture these unique photos of the African landscape and wildlife, Seckler flew over Botswana in a small plane less than 500 feet in the air.

  • 21 Annoying Friends We All Have On Facebook

    We all have these friends on Facebook. Hell, we’ve all been guilty of being at least one of these friends on Facebook. It feels good to laugh at the absurdity of it for a few minutes. But later today, when you’re habitually checking your Facebook like Pookie fiending for crack in New Jack City, you’ll get angry all over again and wonder why you even still use that damn site. What’s Myspace looking like these days? Do they still have animated GIFs?

  • Ken Block’s New Winter Ride is Better Than Your Winter Ride

    Professional rally driver, Ken Block has unveiled this new ride for his winter… Well for ‘winter’ I guess. Block took an (already bad-ass) standard Ford F150 SVT Raptor and partnered up with Hoonigan Racing Division to created a mammoth truck that replaced it’s wheels with Mattracks to create the Ford F150 RaptorTrax. The truck also comes with a Whipple supercharger, a full roll cage in case the beast takes a wrong turn in the snow, a snowboard rack in the trucks bed, a roof-mounted basket, and a rear-mounted winch. The RaptorTrax will make it’s debut at the Winter X Games in Aspen this year.

  • Funny Signs On The London Underground [33 Photos]

    Everyone who uses public transportation will tell you that they’d much rather just read all the signs and advertisements around the car than actually, you know, talk to people. After all, everyone who takes public transportation, aside from yourself, is a creep, right? To keep you entertained while avoiding eye contact, some jokesters have been putting fake signs throughout trains on the London Underground. If only there was some brave comedian who would do the same on Jersey’s PATH trains. I accidentally locked eyes with someone the other night and was profoundly disturbed for the rest of my journey. He looked into my soul, I’m telling you.

  • Robin Thicke’s Dad Is A Way Better Singer [Video]

    Sure, Robin Thicke may be all the rage with the kids these days, but for us older folks, his dad, Alan, is the only Thicke we love. As host of the Saturday morning animal quiz show, “Animal Crack-Ups,” he educated while entertaining us. On “Growing Pains,” we were all jealous of Mike, Carol, and Ben for having a cool dad like Jason. But, as evidenced by this clip from the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobic Championship (so 80s), his greatest talent was his singing. You’re good, Robin Thicke, but you’ll never be Alan Thicke “Sweaty and Hot” good.

    The world is always exposed to televised athletes doing acts of pure physical amazement. But, what often goes unseen are the athletes who take their talents to an entirely different stage—the Internet.

  • The Google Smart Contact Lens Project

    Google announced last week they’re currently testing a new “smart” contact lens which uses a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material to detect glucose levels for diabetics. The prototypes, not yet FDA approved can generate one reading per second using tear fluid from the eyes of it’s wearer. The contact lens is also being tested to detect early warning signs that would trigger a tiny LED light to indicate a spike or decline in normal glucose levels. The project is still in its early stages, but making leaps and bounds in clinical research to help refine the prototype as said on Google’s blog.
