Watch Bubba Watson’s clever golf trick, a pro bowler blow a 300 game, a big guy battle a water bottle and Raul Ibanez giving Carly Rae Jepsen a run for her money. What? I explain in this week’s That Thing You Missed.

Throw Down

One thing is clear from the above video of Seattle Mariners’ outfielder Raul Ibanez. He must stop taking fundamental training from Carly Rae Jepsen.

Fore Play

Well, he didn’t win any Majors this season. But Bubba Watson pulled off this “major” trick with the help of his friend and what appears to be a fishing net.

And while this is pure conjecture on my part I’d say he also had a little help from alcoholic beverages.

Strike Out?

Troy Walker was about to score a 300 game during a tournament when the rack suddenly came down and stopped his ball in it’s tracks.

What could possibly be worse for a pro bowler?

How about when you’re the one who made the mistake of resetting the wrong rack?

Simple Twist Of Fate

[mlbvideo id=”29386255″ width=”420″ height=”315″ /]

While the Mets battled the Kansas City Royals at Citi Field over the weekend, one of their fans had a challenge of his own.

Check out this hunk with some serious muscles caught on camera opening a water bottle. Well trying to open a water bottle anyway.

He’s having more trouble opening that bottle than Lucas Duda is having getting off the DL list and out of the minors.

To make matters worse, the announcers catch this farce and start mocking the limited fan.

Finally, Mets great Keith Hernandez says what everyone else is thinking. “Sir, I think you’ve got the wrong workout program.”

Would you say that to his face, Keith?

Ah, don’t feel sorry for him.  The guy went on to do the “morning show” circuit – where everyone predictably had him try to open a water bottle that was glued shut.
