More Columns here.

In This Week’s That Thing You Missed watch an Olympian pull the “wolf” over people’s eyes, a creative kiss-cam retaliation and If A-Rod thought Major League baseball was tough, he should see what the Cuban players have to deal with. 

 Cuban Pitching Crisis?

Dodgers’ Zack Greinke aside, the only injuries typically sustained during a Major League Baseball’s bench clearing brawl is to the player’s pride.

After watching this video, the same can’t be said about the Cuban Baseball League.

You’ve got to see it for yourself, but suffice it to say the baseball equipment actually doubles as weapons, including one bat-wielding player who wasn’t actually even in the game at the time.

I wonder if they test their players for PED’s? And any chance they’re looking for an aging shortstop?

Crying Wolf?

Screw missing locks on the door, multiple toilets in the bathrooms and yellow water that may or may not have given Bob Costas on eye infection.

That’s a wolf ‘Beyonce-Bopping’ Luger Kate Hansen found roaming the hallway outside of her Olympic village hotel room and it can only be described as terrifying. Well, that is, if it was real. 

It turns out this #SochiProblem was only a hoax once again cleverly orchestrated by Jimmy Kimmel. G-d forbid something truly outrageous happens one of these days. No one’s ever gonna believe it.

Hmmmm… I wonder if protestors were really rioting in the Ukraine?

Ya’ll already know how I feel about the Kiss Cam.. And clearly I’m not the only one who feels harassed by this allegedly fan friendly propaganda.

One Minnesota Gophers fan was so paranoid about getting ambushed by the dreaded ritual when he attended a hockey game with a family member on Valentine’s Day he came armed.

When the fan cam predictably zoomed in he pulled out a note that simply said “My sister” with an arrow pointing in her direction.

He’s adorable right? Something tells me he won’t be dating his sister much longer.

 Power Play

Even if you never watched a game of hockey in your entire life, this billboard that popped up in Illinois should encourage you to tune in and root like hell for Team USA on Friday.

For the love of G-d people watch the game.  The stakes have never been higher.

Update:  Bieber stays.
