What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
What is becoming a tradition here at Dubsism is to point out the look-alikes present on the rosters of both Super Bowl contestants. The problem we face this year is both of these teams have been in recent Super Bowls, which means we faced a bit of a challenge. We weren’t doing this feature the last time the Patriots were in the Super Bowl, but the Seahawks got this treatment last year. Hell, there was another time we even pointed out Pete Carroll’s resemblance to a lesbian soccer coach.
In other words, while we really don’t want to repeat ourselves, there are some things that are just too much gold to be overlooked.
First of all, there’s a Tom Brady bit we used a long time ago on the now-archived Sports Blog Movement. It’s just too priceless not to use here.
Then, there’s the whole matter of the shopworn Bill Belichick / Emperor Palpatine bit. I think it is more important to note how much Belichick look like that silly “Grumpy Cat” meme.
Many people don’t know that Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork is actually revered as a deity by over half a billion Buddhists.
As far as the Seahawks are concerned, while Marshawn Lynch may be the running back who has a strain of the chronic named for him, it is Robert Turbin who actually looks like Method Man.
If you want to make the transition from stoned rappers to dead ones, all it takes to noticing the resemblance between offensive tackle Russell Okung and the late Notorious B.I.G.
While Craig Robinson isn’t a rapper, he does like to play a garage musician annoying the shit out of his neighbor over a Dodge Dart. He also looks a hell of a lot like defensive lineman Michael Bennett.
The doppelganger phenomenon isn’t limited to players. The Seahawks’ general manager happens to be named John Schneider, but he doesn’t look anything like the actor of the same name. But he does bear a resemblance to actor Sean Astin.
