Hyundai is kicking off its new sponsorship with the NFL with an Arizona Cardinals-themed ad called D-Gate. The spot is about a guy and his buddies doing whatever it takes to get on the Jumbotron.


Voted the Most Valuable Player in the Super Bowl for the third time, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was handed the keys to a brand-new Chevy Colorado... and gave it to the guy who very well might have deserved it more.


The Highway Loss Data Institute finds that cars that are insured in zip codes around a football stadium get in more crashes when the home team loses, and not necessarily around the stadium.


An Ole Miss football fan passed out after entering the wrong address for an Uber ride, only to find out that, thanks in part to surge pricing, he owed $908.


Americans, it has been said time and time again, will never embrace soccer. Not when we have so many other sports (like baseball, basketball, hockey and American football) to watch, cheer on and follow. But if anyone can change minds, surely it's Adriana Lima. The Latin American supermodel – best known for being a Victoria's Secret Angel – is the lust-worthy centerpiece of Kia's campaign for the FIFA World Cup, taking place this year in her native Brazil.


The University of Alabama Crimson Tide football team could be in some hot water, following a pair of posts on social media.


We're going to switch gears and step away from the automotive realm for a minute and talk about football. It's one of America's favorite sports, with pro and college teams duking it out on the gridiron every fall and on into winter. It's inherent danger, though, has been making news the last few years due to the sport's alarming number of concussions.

A Colorado woman had just finished reporting her car stolen when it literally crossed her path.


Europeans, as we know, take their football (our soccer) seriously – it isn't until a team wins that their fans can stop being so focused and have some serious fun. Exhibit A: after the German national team beat Argentina in Euro 2012, some chaps still full of cheer (and beer, presumably) came upon this woman trying to slot her tiny Citroën C2 into an equally tiny parking spot. Naturally, they decided she could use a cheer of her own. It is guaranteed this did not happen after the Germ


The emphasis, in this case, rests heavily on the word "could." The mere question of a bet between two folks at Sawicki Motors in Rochelle, Illinois ultimately resulted in the dealership's general manager, Ron Matula, offering anyone a free car if the Chicago Bears can shut out the Green Bay Packers on Christmas Day.


Football is big in the UK, but when the Brits talk about football, they're referring to what we call soccer. Even so, American football has its fans in Great Britain, and not just when Peter Griffin got traded from the New England Patriots to the London Silly-Nannies or when the Marines stationed at our embassy get the night off to watch the big game.

Here are some ideas on how soccer fans can save the world (or at least make next season's FA Cup carbon neutral):


Honda's adding to the Super Bowl spot cacaphony this year, joining Toyota, GM, and Ford. Almost as important as the football, the commercials are often more entertaining than the game itself, and it's not unheard of for non-sports folks to actually tune in for the commercials. While there are often new and highly-amusing spots debuted during the big game, Honda's offerings have already aired.
