Jayson Stark had a surprise guest ask this week’s trivia question on Mike and Mike: Perennial go-to answer,Todd Helton!
As I mentioned last week, Helton announced his retirement at the end of the season, making him ineligible for next year’s brand new batch of current-player-multiple-answer-style questions. So there’s only a couple weeks left for Jayson Stark to sneak in as many more as he can.
With all the whatever surrounding the recent Batman announcement, I thought it was perfect timing for a Ben Affleck movie face quiz (ala the Arnold quiz I did two years ago).
The toughest part about making it was there’s actually a crap-ton of Ben Affleck movies to choose from. So I tried to find a balance of his awesome movies and his horrendous ones, his early years and the more recent, and his easily identifiable roles and more obscure characters.
The Jayson Stark weekly trivia landscape was forever changed on Saturday when Todd Helton announced that he will be retiring at the end of this season.
Helton is the answer to approximately 95% of Jayson Stark’s trivia questions (5% margin of error). So now Stark needs to scramble and fit in as many Heltonian questions as he can before season’s end.
