GQ Magazine throws you under the bus!
Our thoughts go out to the parents of the greatest baseball player on the planet, Mike Trout - he of Millville, New Jersey of course.
Jeff and Debbie Trout didn't break any fashion faux pas or anything else. Instead it's their allegiance to their son that kind of got a backhand slap from the writers/editors of GQ magazine. (In case you didn't know, GQ is a men's fashion magazine that's been around since 1931.)
GQ throws the Trouts under the bus in a story about Mike's teammate, Shohei Ohtani. The write points out that the Trouts are about the only fans there are of their son's team:
"It is impossible, on an afternoon like this, not to understand how a player like Shohei—or the last decade's standout talent, Mike Trout—forgoes a greater chance of winning to play for the Angels. Yes, six straight seasons below .500. Yes, a fan base that seems at times to comprise only residents of Balboa Island and Mike Trout's parents. It's an odd setting for the game's superstars"
GQ - Why do you do that to the Trouts?
Actually, in hindsight, maybe it's not the Trouts that they're throwing under the bus - maybe it's ALL the fans of the California Angels.
Sorry, Jeff and Debbie, GQ shouldn't have called you out!
