AFRICA SOCCCER

As AFRICA makes sporting history by hosting the first-ever WORLD CUP on its soil this year (in South Africa), numerous tributes to the "beautiful game's" deep African heritage have popped up, from the film "Invictus" to painter Kehinde Wiley's recent visual homage. The most insightful, in-depth commentary so far, however, has come from the BBC's "The Changing World" series which chronicles the history of the country's involvement in the sport from street ball and the formation of the Kaizer Chiefs to the aparthied-led fracture of the game and ultimately, its 2010 WC redemption.

Mr Burns goes broke in this Simpsons spot...

Luckily yesterday's SUPER BOWL was all high drama as the SAINTS swept the COLTS because the million dollar commercials were pretty weak this year. Here's the ST recap of the game's best breaks...

watch ALL of them HERE
We can't vouch for Will.I.Am, but Manson AND Bin Laden in a Super Bowl Spot?!? This might just be the heaviest one ever...


We're totally sick of KISS and would be happy to never see Gene Simmons again, but seeing MINI KISS finally get their due gets our vote...


This really captures the daily disgust-itude of office life pretty nicely...


Amazing it took VW this long to embrace the ultimate corporate cultural phenomenon: "punch buggy"...


MUNO's big acting debut...


BETTY WHITE and ABE VIGODA getting sacked. Fantasy Football indeed...


DAVE and JAY feel the grudge in OPRAH's living room. Amazing...

THE BANNED MANCRUNCH SUPER BOWL AD (apparently guys feeling each other up in football uniforms is less "gay" than guys making out, somehow):
