Watch Angels' CJ Wilson Endure Plane Stunts, Answer Questions and Nearly Puke

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 28, 2014

C.J. Wilson's knowledge of the game as well as his stomach were pushed to the limit recently—and all for your entertainment. 

For the Win's Ted Berg spotted this video of Wilson attempting to answer questions while flying with Kirby Chambliss, who Red Bull's two-time Air Race world champion.

I guess pitchers will jump at any chance to infuse some drama during the normally mundane days of spring training. Chambliss, according to the YouTube description, took Wilson around his Arizona property in a "two-seater Edge 540 race plane."

Chambliss started gently, asking Wilson about his playing days and what the best moment of his career has been thus far.

Wilson answers:

Hopefully I haven't had it yet. I'm always looking for something new, something better. I'd like to throw a no-hitter. That'd be the goal. I've thrown like a one-hitter before. Making the All-Star team and pitching in the World Series was pretty exciting.

Getting out of the plane might be up there on his list of accomplishments. 

From there, Chambliss begins asking Wilson a series of extremely easy baseball questions. Spoiler alert: The 33-year-old left-hander doesn't make it to the end of the five questions. 

It's not because the questions get any more difficult but because any further examination under these circumstances would have resulted in what professional eaters like to call a "reversal of fortune."

Right after Chambliss asks what a full count is, he performs a roll that nearly induces a cockpit full of Wlison's lunch. Wilson explains, "We gotta chill. I almost lost it on that one."

Hey, at least answered the questions correctly. 

Wilson is coming off a fine 2013 season. Last year he enjoyed a 17-7 record while garnering a 3.39 ERA and 1.34 WHIP, according to ESPN. He has now notched 15 or more wins in three of the last four seasons. 

That would be enough to assume Wilson is destined for great things in 2014. Now we know the pitcher can withstand an onslaught of aerial twists and turns; he even knows how far it is from the mound to home plate. 

Yup, you can go ahead and move him up on your fantasy draft boards accordingly.
