He’s got three. – Three? – He won two with the Red Sox and one with
the Cubs. – Okay.

We got a ringer here. How’s it going, man?
I’m Mike . We’re doing “Stretch Your Knowledge.” It’s our trivia game show.
You want to participate? – [James] Of course.
– Let’s do it. First question, James. How many World Series rings does
Jon Lester have? – Ahh okay, so let’s see. He would have had one won in 2007 with the
Red Sox, 2016 with the Cubs. Ahh, let’s see. And yeah, he would have been with Boston
in 2013 also. So, three? – Three is correct.
Wow. I feel like this is going to be too easy
for you. How many World Series rings does Jon
Lester Have? – [Carson] Ooh . Three. – That is correct. – Shoot. I was going to say three, so three. – That is correct. How many World Series rings does
Jon Lester have? – [Woman 2] Four? – That’s incorrect. He has three. That’s…that’s closer than a lot of people
have gotten, though. – Thank you. – [Woman 3] Oh, man. – I’m not as blonde as I look. – How many World Series rings does
Jon Lester have? – [Carolyn] Three? – That’s correct. – Yaay. – That was the fastest answer we’ve had
today. – [Luke] Three. – That’s correct.
See? How many World Series rings does
Jon Lester have? – [Woman 4] Two?
Two. – [Woman 3] Two. – [Woman 6] How many did he have with
Boston? – I think he only won one.
– I’m going with two. – Two.
– Two. – Two is incorrect.
– Oh, three. – The Correct answer was three.
– Ooh. – Come on. Two out of three?
Like, come on. – Okay.
Oh, well. – Hey, but you’re a champ, though. James, Laura, Carson, Luke, and Carolyn,
Move on to round two, the lighting round. Okay, round two.
So our lightning round. One question, multiple answers. From 1990 to 2000, name as many Cubs all
stars as you can, without getting one wrong. If you get one wrong, you’re done. Ready? – Let’s start easy. Uh, Ryne Sandberg, for sure would have
made it. Uh, let’s see. Sammy Sosa.
Uh, let’s see. What a, the day, the dark times,
Mark Grace had to make a team here or there. I want to say Steve Trachsel was an all
star once back when they had to have one representative per team. Andre Dawson made it at some point in the
90s, I’m sure. More difficult now.
– There’s a catcher in there. – A catcher.
No. Uh, Rick Wilkins would have to be the
catcher, I think, or no? No, I’m out.
Ah. – I was thinking of Joe Girardi. But… Ah, wow, okay. I forgot about him. – Yeah, but I think that’s pretty good. All right, from 1990 to 2000. – Okay. – Name as many Cubs all stars as you can. – Oh wait, from 1990 to 2000? – Yes. – Oh gosh. I’m going to get this wrong. Was that Sammy Sosa era? – He is one. – Okay.
It’s the only one I know. – That’s it?
You’re just going to stop at one? – I don’t know them.
Let me, let me think. Let me think.
Let me think. – What if I did this? – Oh yes, Ryne Sandberg. – All right, two. – Okay. – You got any more? – [Man 3] First baseman. – First baseman? – [inaudible 00:04:37].
– Shoot. – Leftie. – That’s too many clues. That’s too many clues. – And I’m still not playing. – Thank you for participating. All right, so from 1990 to 2000,
how many Cubs All Stars Can you name? – Kris Bryant and- – Wait, wait, wait. – Okay. – From 1990 to 2000? – 2000. – All right, reset. – Greg Maddux. – That’s one. – Fergie Jenkins. – That is incorrect. You had Sammy Sosa, had Ryne Sandberg,
Andre Dawson. From 1990 to 2000, name as many Cubs all
stars as you can. – Ryne Sandberg. – There’s one. – Mark Grace.
Sammy Sosa. Maddux.
– Okay. – That’s all I got.
– You got four. From 1990 to 2000, name as many cubs all
stars as you can. – Uh, Anthony Rizzo. – Wait, wait, wait.
Stop, wait, let’s back up. – Okay.
– From 1990 to 2000. – Oh, 1990, I’m sorry I wasn’t paying
attention. Lester?
Yes. – 1990 to 2000.
– All right, I’m done. – That’s incorrect.
– I’m done. – Thank you for playing.

time? – All right. – All right, here we go. Three, two, one… – Oh, no, I didn’t answer in the form of a question. – So looks like Gary is our winner. You came up against the expert,
an expert versus expert. The answer was 2038. Well, Gary is our winner,
still undefeated. But Jeopardy James, thank you so much for
coming and hanging out. We had a blast here with you today. – Thanks for having me, Michael. – We want to give a huge thanks to all of

  1. Don't mind me, I'm just Ryan Sandberg, HOF'r & perennial All-Star 2cd baseman. Can I introduce you to my friend Mark Grace, he had the most hits in the 90's.🐻🐻⚾️

  2. Man…I'm a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan since the first grade, and I would've past this with flying colors!

    I actually began becoming a Cubs fan in 1990, due to the once WGN Superstation airing Cubs games almost on the daily, nationally.

    And I'm from deep South, Texas, near Corpus, Christi, where they no longer broadcast games nationally for sometime now, unless MLBN or ESPN happens to broadcast the games.

    But I still have my ways to watch my Cubs play live.

    This makes me even more proud to know that I'm a "True" fan of the Cubbies, knowing their history, more so than most Chicago Natives! 😊

    Cubs up, 3-0, against San Diego, Mid 6th.

    🏆⚾️"Go Cubs Go!"⚾️🏆

  3. Really sad all the high horses we have around here from some of us cubs fans. Knowing historical knowledge about a sport/team/player is not something that defines a "true" fan vs a bandwagoner. Most of these people weren't even born back then, and a lot just don't study MLB history. Chill out and enjoy the game.

  4. How do you get the first one wrong?
    The all star one Is a little difficult and I wasnt alive to know how many SO fergie jenkins had as a cub.
