Well, that didn’t last long.
Two weeks after my prediction that Mike Trout would eventually join Bryce Harper in Philadelphia, the seven time All-Star is instead finalizing a mammoth twelve year, $430 million deal extension deal with the Angels. This will be the largest contract ever signed in North American sports history in terms of how much cash Trout is guaranteed to receive over the next twelve years.
We’re talking serious dollars.
Just to put it into perspective, Mike Trout’s new contract could pay for 860 of Lori Loughlin’s kids to get into USC.

Let’s just this put this out there for thought.

Needless to say, it’s good to be Mike Trout.
Mike Trout will make $430M & be able to hit up Costco Sample Saturday & not even be recognized. Give me that life.

Even Mike Trout’s record breaking contracts are boring. https://t.co/5QhK05q7Br

Queen of the Freaking North
Listen up, Game of Thrones fans: you NEED to see Sophie Turner (AKA Sansa Stark) slay on the Jumbotron at Madison Square Garden.
When she was caught on the big screen at Tuesday night’s New York Rangers game, Sophie hit a dab, chugged her glass of red wine, and wiped her mouth like an absolute champ.

March Madness Begins
March Madness officially kicked off its first round today, with the first batch of games taking place this afternoon. There aren’t expected to be too many surprises this year, so I’ve picked Duke to win the whole thing in my bracket.
Here’s Gritty’s bracket, just because it does not disappoint:
