Super Bowl Sunday is stampeding towards us on the gridiron, and what better way to celebrate than by uniting jocks and nerds into one glorious list? Easier said than done, it seems. This may or may not surprise you, but apparently sports have very little to do with superheroes, despite the fact that both involve men and women dressing up in brightly-colored, often animal-themed costumes for our amusement.
In celebration of the biggest game day of the year, I’ve decided to spread the wealth of geekery to my more athletic brothers and sisters. Click the jump to see 6 of the sportiest superheroes and villains in comics! Though I wouldn’t necessarily let any of them go home with the game ball.
Sometimes it amazes me how many silly and funny things there are on the Internet. Take Bad Lip Reading.
Who comes up with this stuff? And why haven’t I come up with some award-winning, technically marvelous and utterly hilarious Internet thing?
My blog is a fairly nerdy blog. Comic books, video games, geeky movies, it’s the natural order of things around here. And I’m not ashamed to admit that I am, indeed, something of a nerd. Been that way all my life. Let’s not even talk about high school. So how about we start this morning by making fun of some jocks! Wooooooo!
I love Bad Lip Reading.
I don’t care much about sports. When comic books and video games are my thing, football and basketball tend to get pushed to the side. Such is the Circle of Life. But we’re not living in an 80s movie, people! Jocks can be geeks too! Check out this episode of ESPN NFL Kick-Off, where the anchors insert as many Princess Bride references as possible!
That sort of fun is why I still have faith in humanity.
