I caught a bit of Mission: Impossible 2 on cable the other night – during another USMNT loss – and the resemblance was both uncanny & apropos. You see, Roxburgh is the villain’s henchman in M:I2 and Klinsmann is the villain of U.S. soccer. ;-p
See the tale of the tape below and feel free to add your comments or point me to better instances.
In honor of Jason Heyward’s first career grand slam last night against the Chicago Cubs, I thought I’d have a little tongue-in-cheek fun at his expense. It only seems right to do it in a fashion I’m familiar with here on the blog: Separated At Birth.
So, here goes, Separated At Birth: Jason Heyward & Pedro Cerrano.
Here’s the tale of the tape:
Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert)
Nothing too serious for a late Summer Wednesday, but you can find supporting documentation/stats for Jason Heyward online and I culled the “stats” on Cerrano/Haysbert from an article and severalgreatfansites.
This post is little more than a goof on my normal, regular (and oh-so-serious) Separated at Birth posts.
Running on the treadmill the other day at the gym I noticed the show Judge Alex was on. I wasn’t listening – I had my headphones plugged in to my iPhone – so my first thought was “Is The Daily Show/Saturday Night Live doing some kind of skit about syndicated Judge shows?”
I honestly thought Judge Alex was Rob Riggle. Then again, I only watch TDS/SNL online so I didn’t know Rob was mostly just shilling beer now.
Anyhow, here’s a brief look at the “facts” which somehow colluded to cloud my already addled mind:
I’ll cop to being a co-viewer of Grey’s Anatomy (mostly at the behest of my wife, Jenn) but it is an entertaining show.
While the music used to be a lot better, and there have certainly been more cringe-inducing, shark-jumping moments as the melodrama has wound its way through 6 seasons (and a spin-off), I do enjoy seeing a new cast of characters joining the ensemble every season.
Jenn & I were also fairly devout viewers (fans is too strong a term) of Dawson’s Creek. Early WB shows were like Crack and Dawson & Company were the biggest pushers. This explains my still-lingering attraction to Joey Potter (aka Mrs. Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes).
One of the better characters in that series was Gretchen Witter played by Sasha Alexander. She was a good older sister counterpoint to the delinquent Pacey and was a nice non-Joey love interest for Dawson.
Ok. I’m far to familiar and invested in the fictional lives of the people in the Dawson-verse. Backing away from the keyboard now.
Anyhow, I just figured that Grey’s Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Dawson’s Gretchen (Sasha Alexander) looked (and sounded) very similar.
