This is your daily links roundup of our favorite sports and entertainment posts on the web for July 22:

The USF Sun Dolls dance team took a trip to the beach. Looks like they had fun.

Marshawn Lynch surrounds his Lambo with velvet ropes when he parks it. Sounds about right.

Andrelton Simmons may not be from this world.

A guy grew a beard in the shape of the Washington Nationals logo.

• Good stuff, if a little inside baseball: breaking down Mike Trout's swing.

• Zach Mettenberger got clocked by a rogue Bama fan in a Nashville bar. But it could have been worse.

The highlight of Cliff Lee's evening was a satisfying fart.

• ESPN's "This Is SportsCenter" ad featuring Metallica is pretty funny, as are the bloopers and outtakes.

Andre Drummond treated a bowling ball like a basketball, with amusing results.

The Chargers can boast only the second-best softball team in San Diego. Interesting footnote: Philip Rivers "is a horrible shortstop."

So apparently Rory McIlroy did Jager bombs out of the Claret Jug.

• You'd think a pitcher would be able to throw the ball around the infield. In Shane Greene's case, you'd be wrong.
