This 3-year-old was born with one arm. But he didn't let it stop him from becoming quite the golfer.
You can make golf into a miserable journey, a constant self-battle that seemingly will never be won.
Or you can be like Tommy Morrissey.
The 3-year-old from southern New Jersey isn't lamenting his lack of distance off the tee, nor the struggles in his short game. Morrissey, according to myfoxphilly.com, was born without a full right arm due to a blood clot that prevented the arm from developing below the elbow. Yet he took an interest in the game when he was 1, and now he can hit the ball better than pretty much anyone his age -- and even some adults.
Check it out:
We've seen a "Seinfeld Night," courtesy of the New York Mets' Class A affiliate, complete with show-themed bobbleheads, a renamed ballpark and many other tributes to the hit sitcom.
But now someone in California -- probably some low talker -- had the idea to do one better: On Nov. 16, the Bakersfield Condors, an Edmonton Oilers affiliate in the ECHL, will don "puffy shirt" jerseys, in reference to one of "Seinfeld's" many famous episodes (check out this clip for more) and to celebrate the show's 25th anniversary.
Yes, this is what they're wearing. They look like they're going to swing in on a chandelier.
The references don't end with the "puffy" theme. The uniforms also will be "sponsored" by companies from the show (Vandelay Industries, Pendant Publishing, etc.). And instead of wearing their own names, players will sport those of 25 famous characters. The 20 already chosen are: Jerry, George, Kramer, Newman, Frank Costanza, Puddy, J. Peterman, Steinbrenner, Morty Seinfeld, Uncle Leo, Art Vandelay, Kenny Bania, Lloyd Braun, Jackie Chiles, Crazy Joe Davola, Mandelbaum, Bubble Boy, Keith Hernandez, Mickey Abbott and, erm, one we can't print here. Fans can vote on the final five. A draft will take place to determine who wears which.
Jerseys will be auctioned off after the game to benefit the M.A.R.E. Riding Center in Bakersfield.
This is the place where we'd usually add more "Seinfeld" references, but we'll just let the team's Twitter account take it away:

We can only imagine what would happen if someone confused @FauxPelini with the real Bo Pelini.

Miniature things are trendy: tiny houses, bite-sized candy bars, teacup pigs ... mini Madden players? Thanks to a glitch in "Madden 15," fans have been having fun with this tiny Titan:
He's juuuust a bit too short to snag an interception:

And tackling is clearly a challenge for the vertically challenged:
But miraculously -- despite being the same size as the football -- he's able to recover a fumble:

The star of the glitch appears to be Cleveland Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey, whom some Madden players have seen listed at 1-foot-2. It's unclear why Kirksey is on the Tennessee Titans in this glitch, but he made the most of the situation on his Twitter account ...
... and talked to SportsCenter about it on Tuesday:
