Although it sounds like Jay Leno’s 10 p.m. show has been such a disaster that he’s already going back to 11:30, there was (apparently) a pretty entertaining segment on Thursday night. Leno had Denzel Washington on as a guest and – since Denzel is a Yankees fan – set up a game-show style trivia contest with Washington facing off against CC Sabathia.
Give Washington credit: He knows his Yankees, correctly answering that Yogi Berra endorsed Yoo-Hoo and that Alfonso Soriano holds the record for most strikeouts in a season by a Yankee (CC guessed that it was Reggie Jackson). Check out the clip here.
(For the record, CC says his favorite Denzel movie is “Out of Time.” Mine is probably “Training Day,” though I have a soft spot for “Remember the Titans,” which – random fact alert – had several scenes filmed at a high school right next to my freshman dorm at Emory.)
