The Agony Of Defeat

The curse of Mick Jagger lives! In one of the most anticipated games of the World Cup, Germany trounced Brazil 7-1, leaving the host nation's fans in a state of shock. Predictably, Twitter went wild with jokes and memes (and swimsuit models!) as the game officially became the most tweeted about sports event of all time. Even God got in on the action. More importantly, Brazi's drubbing started a new movement in Australia called #timcahilling.

Having Fun With Naked Prince Fielder

Prince Fielder is one of the athletes who posed naked for ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, and since it's 2014, people made jokes on Twitter. My favorites included naked Fielder spinning the Price is Right wheel and naked Fielder hailing a cab in Manhattan. I apologize if you were looking for something more lively after reading my headline for this item.

From the SI Vault

O.J. Simpson turns 67 today. In this 1978 photo, Simpson relaxes on the set of Firepower, which, according to IMDB, is "not a very good movie." Simpson would later star in the highly successful Naked Gun franchise before being tried—and ultimately acquitted—on charges that he murdered his ex-wife.
