A video purporting to contain the world's greatest jump roping is circulating online. We don't have a huge frame of reference, but ... it's not wrong.

Dubbed the "world's greatest jump roper," this girl ain't doing double dutch here. Think cartwheels while jumping to jumping while sitting down, etc.

Watch in awe at her mad skills below:

One might not think of jumping rope as an extreme sport, but this athlete makes it look rather insane ... and makes us feel awfully out of shape and uncoordianted.

Seattle Mariners catcher Kelly Shoppach's throw to second Tuesday night may not have been a factor in the team's 6-2 loss, but it clearly made history:

We challenge you to find a worse throw than this.

At first, we thought he tried to stop himself from trying to throw out a base-stealer, but then he appears to give it a real go ... and launch it all of three feet.

Whatever happened, it's pretty darn awesome.

Feel free to watch it over and over again.

Worst Throw Ever

It might not have been on the level of such actual Boston Marathon heroes as Carlos Arredondo and Joe Andruzzi.

But Yankee fans showed solidarity with their rivals yesterday by paying tribute to the victims of Monday's horrible attack in a moving manner:

But the wideout endeared himself to fans yesterday after making a pledge related to the Boston Marathon bombing, Tweeting that he will donate $100 this season "for EVERY pass I catch to whatever Boston Marathon Relief Fund" there is."

And also? $200 for any dropped pass.

"we don’t quit, we don’t cower, we don’t run. we endure and conquer. #mambamentality," Ware wrote as a caption to the image, referencing Kobe Bryant and his Achilles tear from Friday night.

Considering Ware had a bone literally sticking out of his leg just 16 days ago, this is a rather impressive scene.
