Vernon Davis is an exceptional football player. Just don’t ask him to throw the ball.
On Monday, Davis posted an Instagram video in which he is seen trying to throw a bouquet of flowers onto the ice at the Iceberg Skating Palace in Sochi. The bouquet landed several feet short and appeared to hit a cameraman.
The hilarious mishap occurred after Maia and Alex Shibutani of Team USA performed. Hopefully you’re able to watch the video with audio, because the resulting giggles are fantastic.
Davis is attending the Sochi Olympics to serve as an honorary captain for the U.S. Curling teams. He also attended the Vancouver Olympics in the same role.

A quick scan of Davis’ career stats indicated that he’s never thrown the ball in a pro or college game. Aside from the fact he’s a perfectly good tight end, now you might know why.
