Don’t worry, I’m not fishing for any deeper meaning behind that question. No, that was the correct question on a Jeopardy! answer last night in the Teen Tournament (highly preferential to regular Jeopardy! because I feel smarter). None of the three contestants came up with the correct answer — er, question. And really, who has time for baseball when there are Emily Dickinson poems to read and periodic table flash cards to review?
Coincidentally, this isn’t even Trout’s biggest venture into pop culture this week, having already starred in a Subway Super Bowl commercial opposite Jared and that one guy from The Office. Such is the life of a newly christened baseball star.
Miguel Cabrera won MVP, but has he ever been a Jeopardy! answer? I doubt it. If I’m Trout, I’m texting Miggy on a daily basis, saying things like “This player struck out looking to end the 2012 World Series…who is you?” Or “This team last won the World Series seven years before I was born…who are the Detroit Tigers?” You get the idea.
Man, baseball really needs to start soon.
