Happy Jackie Robinson Day

I often hear from friends and family that professional sports are not "important."  That if people cared as much about their communities as a whole as they did about whether or not their team won or lost, the world might be a better place.

Thursday night near the end of the episode, a baseball question popped up and the answers were absolutely classic. I'm not knocking you ladies, as I know a few women that could answer this question, but this was just a hilarious kind of cute.
