In the movie Dodgeball, Patches O’Houlihan famously says, “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.” Unfortunately, just because you’re an NFL quarterback, you can’t necessarily throw one.
Yesterday, the NFL debuted dodgeball as one of several new events intended to increase interest in Pro Bowl weekend. The game was a hit, but the funniest moment came when Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith showed off his dodgeball skills.
Smith is an NFL quarterback, but his dodgeball tossing technique could use some work. Instead of gunning darts like you would expect from an NFL QB, Smith throws a dodgeball like the kid who tries extra hard in gym class. Nice…job…Alex.
To be fair to Smith, he throws a dodgeball about as well as he throws the deep ball.
It’s a short clip, but worth watching and dying laughing over a couple hundred times.
