If I were Icelandic, I’d do just about everything in my power to get myself in front of a TV whenever my sweet boys in blue suited up during this miraculous Euro 2016 run of theirs. Apparently, actual Icelanders feel the same way, as almost literally every TV in the country was tuned in for Iceland’s win over England…
Former England manager Steve McClaren had the misfortune of commentating on his country’s humiliating loss against Iceland for Sky Sports yesterday. Watch as he goes from desperately projected confidence to utter despair in about three seconds, and chuckle to yourself about England’s unceasing failure.
By now you are entirely on board with Iceland, the most surprising, most exciting, most likable team at the European Championship. More Jörmungandr than minnow, Iceland is still undefeated and has now dispatched Austria and England in consecutive matches.
The ancients foretold the coming of Ragnarök, the great battle of men and gods that would take the lives of countless figures both small and great, culminating in the destruction of the world as we know it today. A select few fallen warriors, hand-picked by Odin himself, would, upon their deaths after proving their…
The Viking warriors that make up the Iceland national team are in the fight of their lives right now, trying to take down England as huge underdogs. England went up early with a Wayne Rooney penalty, but Iceland leveled almost immediately through Ragnar Sigurdsson, before Kolbeinn Sigthorsson’s cool strike above gave…
If you’ve ever been curious about the proper vocalization of “!!!!!!!!!,” this Icelandic announcer is here to enlighten you with his call of the home team’s historic Euro 2016 win against Austria:
It took until the final minute of the final group stage match, but Iceland, the smallest country in the tournament, scored the winning goal against Austria to win a place in the Euro 2016 knockout rounds:
“And now the unfortunate Portuguese will feel the mighty thunder of Þór’s Icelandic warriors” read the first tweet from Iceland’s English-language magazine, the Reykjavík Grapevine, during their coverage of their teeny tiny nation’s Euro 2016 match against Portugal. It didn’t take long after that for the mag to cement…
Look, there's a lot going on here, and the only available information has to be translated from the Icelandic, so bear with me: I'm doing the best I can. From available news reports (headline: "Icelander panties girlfriend and drove car sales - mixed video!"), we can glean that this transpired three years ago in…
We're not entirely sure why Penn State and Central Florida decided to play a game in Ireland, but this weird idea could now be in jeopardy due to a big-ass volcano that is fitting to fuck everything up.
Iceland! Home of Elf School, airport layovers on the way to good Europe, and mediocre soccer. U.S. Soccer just poached one of their young players, and now Iceland is steaming, just like their picturesque and restorative geothermal pools.
Do yourself a favor and take two minutes out of your evening to watch this visually and sonically beautiful video of a guy juggling his way across Iceland.
For Music Week, our own Jack Dickey will be defending his seemingly indefensible music tastes. Tuesday: Drake. Today: Björk.
One thing I've learned, as I've slumped into adulthood, is that you may have dear friends, but none of them are as reliable as aging English rock stars. Such as Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson, who will do a nice thing for a bunch of Icelanders stranded in New York by Hurricane Irene.
As spotted by our pals at Pies, the Icelanders who clearly spend more time coming up with dance routines than learning how to tackle have been really quite busy.
