Since I can barely keep up — meaning not in the least bit — with the current trendsetters in American pop music, I must admit that I have never heard of Tiffany Hwang, nor am I familiar with her nine-member, all-girl super-group, Girls’ Generation. While Girls’ Generation initially made its mark on the global pop charts from its home base of South Korea, Hwang was born and raised on the West Coast and her father apparently is a big-time Dodgers fan. So, how did the 23-year-old global pop phenom fare? Did she make her father proud while throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers hosted the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night? Um, no. Here’s the lovely young lady giving it her best shot, with South Korea’s Hyun-Jin Ryu handling the catching duties. Via Cut4: Yikes. Good form, bad results. Her pre-pitch posing may have thrown her off her game. It was definitely not as good as Cris Carter’s recent attempt at a Reds game. But in all honesty, that should be expected. If you were unwilling to sit through Hwang’s interview, the Dodgers did upload this VINE video: Double yikes. And yet, totally adorable. In this video on MLB.com, Hwang says that Hyun-Jin Ryu told her “It’s okay,” which is awfully nice of him because it was not. Then again, she is a cute, apparently talented pop music performer. Should we really expect anything more? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a bunch of Girls’ Generation songs to catch up on. I hope the music is a trip, that it has a funky beat and that I can bug out to it.
