Separated at Birth?

The fat guy from More to Love and the Lions franchise QB Matthew Stafford.

Hopefully for Detroit, a city that has suffered enough, this is not an ominous sign.

This has absolutely nothing to do with sports, but Bravo has gone too far this time. They are casting the case person in two of their Housewives series.

Housewife of New Jersey, Danielle Staub and Housewife of New York City, LuAnn "Countess" de Lesseps

Note: I am not proud of this.

Neither of these two individuals qualifies as a sports fgure, but I saw MG's face on the cover of ESPN.com so we can include it here.

Triple Dose of "Separated," Double Dose of "Pet Peeves," and More

Separated at Birth (Part I)?

Former Johns Hopkins Blue Jay and Baltimore Orioles farmhand, Paul Winterling and NY Mets slugger Ryan Church.

Separated at Birth (Part II)?

Milwaukee Brewers superstar Ryan Braun and "The Sports Guy" Bill Simmons. (Note: This is strictly based on looks because comparing these two athletically would be like comparing LeBron James and my sister)


Separated at Birth (Part III)?

Denver Nugget PF Chris "Birdman" Anderson and Jon Bon Jovi


Sports Pet Peeve #30: Bruce Springsteen saying "speedball" instead of "fastball" during the song Glory Days. Come on, Bruce. You are better than that.


Sports Pet Peeve #100: The fact that the country's worst-run professional franchises in each of the four major sports can win their respective lotteries and receive the first overall pick in their drafts (see Lions, Clippers, Islanders, Nationals). These teams, in essence, get rewarded for making awful decisions.


This is a bit of a teaser as the Banter will be on another hiatus until the first week of June.

Thanks again for all the support.

Separated at Birth?

Former North Carolina State basketball coaches, Jim Valvano and Kay Yow.

Obviously, this has nothing to do with looks and everything to do with the legacies these two left behind.
