People love to give us the business on Twitter whenever we post an athlete’s wedding registry, like we don’t already know these millionaires don’t need charity from people living paycheck to paycheck. Newsflash: You don’t actually have to buy these strangers anything — it’s merely a service to diehard fans who want to show some appreciation for one of their players.
Today, we’re giving Angels fans the opportunity to give some love to the best damn player in the game: Mike Trout. He popped the question to Jessica Cox this past summer, and the two are set to get married in New Jersey next November.
Mike doesn’t hit free agency until 2021, but we’re going to advise Angels fans to consider a gift since he’s wasting countless MVP-caliber seasons on a sorry team mostly devoid of talent. Before you know it, he’ll be the one who wants 10 years and $400 million, and we all know Arte Moreno’s morphed into a shamelessly thrifty owner.
Mike and Jessica are registered at Macy’s, Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn — our picks:
- Rachael Ray cutlery set ($30/Macy’s)
- Calphalon 15-piece cutlery set ($180/Macy’s)
- Leaves dish towel ($4/C&B)
- Wine stopper ($10/C&B)
