This just in! Mike Trout can jump higher than you. I don't know you, but I know you can't jump as high as Mike Trout. Don't believe me? Allow me to present Exhibit A: So, yeah. Suck it, you. You only wish you could jump that high. This only lends more evidence to my claim that Mike Trout is Superman. They say Superman can leap over a building in a single bound and while this isn't a building, it is good enough proof for me. Personally, I'm glad that Trout was just able to pull that stunt off because if he didn't land that jump, came crashing to the ground and blew out his knee, then that would be the dumbest injury ever, no? Also, let's hope Mike Trout can get that contract extension soon so that he can get a video camera that as a resolution slightly better than what "Bigfoot found" videos are shot on. [follow]
