I love playing the "look it's someone famous game," as I am constantly pointing out celebrities to Rebecca and friends. Tonight for instance, Norm Macdonald visited my work. Now of course it really wasn't Norm, but he looked similar, and he sounded exactly like him. I normally get feedback from Rebecca ranging from "no I don't see it," to "oh yeah he does." It is the later reply that gives me great satisfaction. The greatest moment of this game was a few years back when Porkboy46 and I were having a beer at a little bar in Manassas. I turned to Porkboy and said "look it's The Stepfather," and I got the "oh yeah." That's when I said "no, it really is the stepfather." And sure enough, Terry O' Quinn plopped down in the bar stool next to me and ordered a beer and chicken wings. The game had come full circle.
Here are a few athletes that look like celebrities in my mind. I'm sure there are many more, let me know which ones I missed in the comments section.
Orlando Magic Coach Stan Van Gundy
Cal Ripken Jr.
