Talking Athlete look-alikes!

This, I thought, would be a fun topic. Have you ever seen an athlete and thought, "Hey, he looks JUST like..."? I sure have! I found a page listing a bunch of "candidates" at: http://espn.go.com/page2/s/looking/archive4.html

Take a look at those, some of them cracked me up!

Brian Daubach and Abe Lincoln?
Randy Johnson and Yosemite Sam? :lol:
Ricky Rudd and Bill Clinton? Rudd is my FAVORITE NASCAR driver, don't know if this is a good or bad thing.
And last, but not least, John Rocker and Scooby Dooby-Doo! :nod:

What are some of your favorites, or ones not listed?

Default Separated at Birth

Okay I'm starting a new game thread. I saw this once on hoopsboards.com. It's called "Separated at Birth". Basically you take an athlete and say who that athlete looks like. You know, like if you didn't know who they really were, you would swear they were twins or something.

I'll start it off. I think Ray Allen looks a lot like Denzel Washington.

Ray Allen = Denzel Washington.

Cool, I've never seen Tiki Barber before actually.

I got another one:

Robert Horry = Will Smith.

I merged my very similar thread I posted right before Spike did in the Other Sports Blitz board with Spike's here.

Default Like someone said earlier .....

Let's actually make this into a fun game .....

Somebody starts by naming an athlete .... and then OTHER people have to give a name of somebody who looks like him or her.

For example ... Mark McGwire

Now it's your turn to tell me who he looks like ....

This game makes no sense, or has any relavence, nor is a game at all!!

Anyway......

From the ESPN.com thing Marc showed, I am stunned at Broderick/Maddux, Daly/Irwin and Ripken/Willis

I agree Jared, it's not much of a game. Kinda more fun just to hear what people say. Some of those on the ESPN thing were pretty good, but others were just plain dumb.

Sorry about that Marc. I didn't check that you had this same thread in the "Other Sports Blitz" board although I did do a search of any thread like this on this board before I made my original post.

Anyways, just name who you think looks like who, I'll go with Darrick Martin = Alfonso Ribeiro.

Martin is a backup point guard with the Dallas Mavericks who played with the Kings last year. And Ribeiro was the uptight cousin on "The Prince of Bel Air" with Will Smith.
