Video: Pro Bowler Fail – Josh Blanchard

Okay, so this actually reminds me of how I look EVERY time I bowl, but still, you gotta think the embarrassment of doing this would be worse than the actual fall itself?

Add this to the list of Tiger Woods’ “firsts” on the PGA Tour: a member of the gallery at the Open tournament this week charged at him as he lined up his put on the 16th hole, yelled his name (Tiger, Tiger!) and then threw a hot dog at him.
