    The goal with any sports sim video game has always been to make the gameplay as realistic as possible. At first that meant simply getting the strategy and outcomes right.

    Yesterday we showed you the work of one creative Redditor who decided to redesign the logos for all 32 NFL teams.

    Dirk Nowitzki Stars In Mavericks Geico Ad Parody (Video)

    You’ve seen the ad: an obnoxious camel bothers each one of its coworkers about the fact that it’s “Hump Day” in the office.

    There’s a channel over on YouTube called CKDTrickShots, and pretty much all the videos are of a bunch of high school kids in Oregon making ridiculous trick basketball shots.
