Ok, williewilliejuan, lets do this thing!
willie and I are going to put up three pairs of athlete/celebrity lookalikes, and you all can decide on who did the better job of matching them up.
So, first off, I've been seeing this avatar over on the NCAAF boards, and have been struck repeatedly that it make me think of a certain athlete, which has led to this TD.
Yep, good old Michael J. Pollard, the quirky oddball that rose to fame tooling around with Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway in "Bonnie and Clyde".
And as it turns out, the athlete that he reminds me of, I can totally envision riding around with the Barrow gang, robbing banks and shooting at the coppers.
Thats right, Josh Koscheck, D-bagdeluxe from the UFC.
So, good luck to you, Sir willie.
BRING THE..... ah, just bring it!

Thanks for the opportunity, Nerby. It's always a pleasure to TD with you. Without further ado, my first selection is:
They look like brothers from another mother. But their similarities go way past looks. Dan Marino, despite being one of the most talented NFL quarterbacks, never won a Superbowl. David Hasselhoff, despite showing amazing acting chops and range in vehicles such as Anaconda III and Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding, has never won a significant acting award.
They've both had issues with food. Marino got all tubby after his playing days were over and ending up shilling Nutri System to show how he could take the weight off. Hasselhoff's most watched film from the past few years is a home movie his daughter made of him drunkenly eating a hamburger.
Finally, when Marino left the Dolphins, he has been replaced by an endless stream of talentless hacks with no discernible skills. Hasselhoff was replaced on America's Got Talent by Howie Mandel.
They're practically the same guy. Good luck, Nerby. Let's have fun.

Nice work there, 3-name.
Ok, for my next pair (by the way, I'm not gonna use Mike Tomlin/Omar Epps, because Tomlin never went pro), I'm going to use a couple of artists renderings, but will still get the point across nicely.
First, the athlete:
This guy is an extreme winter athlete, an Olympic Champion, and a pioneer of his chosen sport. He has moves he seems to pull out of a hat at times, truly creative in everything he tries.
Yes. Shaun White and Carrot Top were indeed separated at birth. Almost scary to imagine what would have happened, had they been raised together.
