In this week’s That Thing You Missed watch David Ortiz “Prancercise,” (yes, I wrote Prancercise), Carly Rae Jespen’s pathetic pitch, Matt Harvey interview people about Matt Harvey and a little golf “don’t” from a pro on the course at Muirfield.

IRON MAN

 

Golf is traditionally known as a “Gentleman’s Sport.”

I don’t think Charl Schwartzel got that memo.

This is how the 2011 Masters Champion reacted after hitting a bad shot out of the rough on the 15th hole during the opening round of The British Open.

Did I mention he had made three straight bogeys earlier in the day?

The 6-iron never recovered.

Could he be auditioning for a role in Happy Madison 2?

THROWING A CURVE BALL

All eyes were on Mets pitcher Matt Harvey this week, not just because he is arguably the best pitcher in baseball right now, or because he started for the National League in the 84th All-Star Game on Tuesday Night, or because he learned the hard way not to say dumb stuff to journalists.
Matt Harvey has become famous for interviewing people about Matt Harvey.

“Who’s Matt Harvey?” the first person asked Harvey in the above must-see video.  

I guess not all “eyes” are on Harvey just yet.

Harvey proved not only can he deliver a fastball across home plate; he can deliver deadpan humor.

BIG PAPI ‘PRANCERCISING’?  YES.

David Ortiz is the only member of the Boston Red Sox chosen to play in this year’s All-Star game.

So how does one of the biggest sluggers of his time travel to the exclusive Midsummer Classic? Chauffeured, pimped out SUV you’d imagine?

Guess again.

Big Papi and Blue Jays’ outfielder Jose Bautista decided to ‘Prancercise’ their way through the streets of Manhattan to CitiField.

Too bad Joanna Rohrback has no idea who the hell ‘Big Papi” is.

The Red Sox are probably just relieved he’s not throwing bats.

I just thank Sweet Jesus they didn’t do the Harlem Shake.

“A LITTLE PITCHY”

Singer Carly Rae Jepsen may be able to sing a tune and write a hit song that you can’t get out of your head for days even if you bang your head against the wall, but the girl cannot throw a baseball.

The “Call Me Maybe” singer threw what is being called in certain circles (mine) one of the “worst ever” ceremonial first pitches in baseball history.

You can decide how bad it is for yourself. We’ve decided to spread the mocking around and compiled a top ten video list of the worst ever celeb first pitches.

You’re welcome.

SLAM DUNK

So, it’s too damn hot across most of this country to play sports.

But it’s the perfect temperature for setting up a seven-man Alley-Oop in your back yard pool and we think we’ve found the best one ever.

How badly do you wish you were in that pool right now?

Disclaimer: CBS Detroit thinks they may have found one better. Check out this ten-man pool Alley-Oop here.

Do you have a better video? We want to see it.
