Best & Worst Weekends: Bruno Mars Wins the Super Bowl (Halftime Gig), Eminem Goes "Berzerk"

It was a big weekend in the world of sports, with both music stars making major announcements during football games, Tokyo getting the 2020 Summer Olympics, and two women meeting baseball's worst fan

Best: Bruno Mars 

Bruno Mars has snagged the coveted title of Super Bowl halftime headliner, the NFL confirmed on Sunday. The "Treasure" singer will perform during Super Bowl XLVIII in February.

Fans of Mars should keep in mind the performance will be taking place in NEW YORK CITY in FEBRUARY, so needless to say, Bruno should pack a coat. Or two.

Worst: Kevin Hart

In celebration of the start of the NFL season, comedian Kevin Hart sent out a tweet on Sunday that he’s already (more than likely) come to regret:

The tweet has already been lambasted by a variety of websites and outraged Twitter users who are understandably less-than-pleased with Hart’s sexist views.

Best: Football Fans

America’s Favorite Pastime (Right Now) is back! Whether you’re a die-hard-with-five-different-fantasy-football-teams kind of fan or you just like grilling out with friends on Sundays, there’s no reason not to be happy! Unless, you know, you’re a Ravens fan:

Ouch. Sorry, Baltimore.

Worst: Anyone sitting next to this guy at the Red Sox game

Yes, it's super exciting when your favorite player attempts to make a catch directly in front of your seat. But that's no excuse to lose all control of your arms, wildly knocking one woman's cell phone onto the field, then knocking another woman's beer into her face: 

Broken cell phones, spilled beers, no remorse. At least they got to see Shane Victorino up close? Actually, no. Not worth it.

Best: Tokyo

The capital city of Japan has been officially selected to host the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. Tokyo was chosen over other finalists Madrid and Istanbul, and marks the second time the city has hosted the event (the last time the city had the honor was 1964). The final vote from the International Olympic Committee was 60 votes to Tokyo, and a sparse 36 for Istanbul. Congratulations, Japan! We can't wait to see how they top this:

Worst: Tattoo Parlors In Washington, D.C.

Newly proposed legislation from the Department of Health would require people in the nation’s capital who want a tattoo or piercing to wait 24 hours before doing so. The ordinance would require a customer to enter a parlor to make the request, ponder that decision for a full day, and then come back to get the piercing or tattoo done. Expect a sharp decline in drunken YOLO tats if it goes through.

BONUS: Weirdest Weekend goes to... Eminem

Rapper Eminem stopped by the ESPN booth during halftime at the Notre Dame/Michigan football game on Saturday to show a clip of his new song, "Berzerk." Unfortunately, he also happened to look kind of berserk himself, staring out into space and seeming pretty… out of it. What's going on Em?
