Many have probably suspected that Just Verlander made some sort of a dark deal with the sports gods this year. Last night, we got confirmation of this when he correctly picked not only the winner of the Super Bowl, but the EXACT final score.
Even more bizarrely, he won something for this achievement as part of the Scripps Howard Celebrity Super Bowl Poll, “which is an actual trophy”. I love that MLB.com felt our collective skepticism and felt the need to point this out. Excellent use of sarcasm, there. Even more hilarious is the fact that everyone in sports appears to be all over this story. We obviously need the season to start, like, yesterday.
I’m sure Justin will put this on the shelf right next to his Cy Young and MVB awards.
