Dan McShane

Dan McShane won on Jeopardy four times in a row last week, where he was introduced as a professional “Baseball Game Logger,” which is 1. the coolest job ever, except for maybe “Personal Shopper” or “Rock Band,” 2. not actually his job any more, as he is currently employed by Everyday Health, 3. easily confused for baseball b-logger, which led to this story being forwarded to me by at least two people who wanted me to know that “people like me” could win Jeopardy. He accumulated $64,001 in winnings, which he plans to use for “world travel”. The weirdest thing I discovered while researching Dan McShane is that, thanks to his sweatered youthfulness, he has developed somewhat of a cult following with the teenage girls on tumblr. Examples:

dan mcshane is his name. please dominate this game show for several days so your face doesn’t have to leave my screen anytime soon.

On a completely thinspo unrelated note…
I think I’m in love with the jeopardy returning champ. Dan McShane. Also John Green’s new book was amazing. Okay, back to thinspo.
Now do some sit-ups everyone!

We’re not all gonna go dateless.

    I saw those Jeopardy shows and kept hoping Alex Trebek would ask him about being a “Baseball Game Logger.” Also, I thought he had a big head.

    On an unrelated note, that “thinspo” stuff can be really disturbing.

      Dayn Perry, are you reading this? We need a nomination thread for actors to play the two lead relievers/detectives in “Save Situation.” And maybe the cartoonishly evil retired left fielder who becomes their arch-rival.

      Clearly, one reliever-turned-private-investigator would be lefthanded and be responsible for handling lefthanded investigatees and the other would be righthanded and handle the righthanded investigatees. In the rare case of an ambidextrous investigatee, their former baseball manager and current detective agency manager “Tony LeRusso” would decide whether to assign the case to the lefthanded or righthanded investigator.

    He’s not the guy who got the term “donkey punch” snuck into the Jeopardy world, however. I say that guy wins the Internet.
