Trout going to heaven? OK, we got really confused

Like everyone else in the known Internet universe, we troll various news aggregation sites to learn what is happening in the Hoosier outdoors.

Yesterday, we got a little confused when we read the following headline:

Teenager Trout Called Up By Angels – Sports News Story – WRTV Indianapolis.

Does this story concern a youngish trout?  Why did the Angels need a trout, anyway?  Were they hungry for fresh fish?  Was this actually a metaphore for something else, as in the trout was deceased and “Joined the choir-invisible?”

As it turns out the fish in question is Mike Trout, a young man playing for the Arkansas Travelers of the AA baseball league who was called up to the majors by the Los Angeles Angels.

Amen.
