Former Washington Nationals slugger and current MLB free agent Dan Uggla may want to be a little more careful when it comes to his extracurricular activities. Not only did he take a chance on Christmas by getting on one of those hoverboards that have been known to self-immolate, but he fell off one.

Ugglaโ€™s wife, Janette, who shared the moment with the world on Instagram on Friday, made a good excuse for her usually very athletic husband.

โ€œI caught him not paying attention,โ€ she said.

Perhaps it was the Justin Bieber bumping in the background that threw him off.
