Check Out Real-Life 'Mario Brothers'

If you like video games and free-running, here's some cool video to distract you from the afternoon.

Christian Russell and Ronnie Shalvis are Youtube stars who are awesome at parkour, or urban gymnastics.

In this edition of the "Award of the Day," reports CNN's John Berman, the two men hop and flip through a city dressed as "Super Mario Brothers."

For that, they get the prize entitled "I Pulled my Groin Just by Watching."

CNN's John Berman sympathizes with the hunk and gives him the "Man do I know how you feel award."

Kiss Among Owners of New Arena Football Team

In today's edition of the "Award of the Day" – What is the one thing missing in football? Makeup. Definitely not enough makeup, CNN's John Berman reports. Now that is about to change...

The newest team in the arena football league? The LA KIss! That's right, Kiss – led by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons – are among the new owners of this new team

It is unclear at this point of the players will be asked to wear armor and spandex instead of pads.

To present the "Already way better than the Jets" Award.

Also, a fun fact: Over the last 40 years, Kiss has the same number of Super Bowl as the Jets.

Berman's Award of the Day: Prince Joins Twitter

In today's edition of the "Award of the Day" – Prince – or the artist sometimes so named- has just taken a major step, according to CNN's John Berman. As of this week, Prince appears to be on Twitter.

He is tweeting under the handle @3rdeyegirl, which is the name of the band he is performing with. His first tweet just said:


His second tweet? "PRINCE'S 2ND TWEET."

He then tweeted some food, and a sort of selfie. So why is this a big deal? A lot of people are on Twitter after all.

Well, a couple of years ago, Prince said this in an interview:

"The internet is completely over... all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you."

The internet is over? Maybe not Prince. I think the world wide web might amount to something, says Berman, and now apparently you do too. Welcome to the 90's Prince. Tonight you are going to party likes it's 1999.

Therefore, Prince wins the "Party Like it's 1999 Award. He Finally made it.
