The Friday Buzz: Denzel Beats Yankee All-Star Cano at Yankee Trivia and More

Denzel Washington is an unabashed fan of the New York Yankees. He’s such a fan that, in previous trips to “The Tonight Show,” Jay Leno has pitted him against both the Yankees’ ace pitcher CC Sabathia and Hall-of-Famer Reggie Jackson in Yankee trivia quizzes. And he’s beaten them both.

This time Denzel tested his knowledge about the Bronx Bombers against their All-Star second baseman, Robinson Cano. And while Cano dashed out to an early lead, Denzel caught up quickly. And while we don’t expect someone playing for the team to know its history better than a fan like Denzel does, we still feel Cano should know a little more. Thought getting smoked by a two-time Oscar winner isn’t anything to hang your head about.

Watch Denzel’s victory above. While you’re here, click the links below to see what other fun stuff happened yesterday:
