Separated at birth

California Correspondent August 14, 2008 44

Watching the Yankees game lives in Los Angeles last weekend, I realized that Justin Christian has a familiar face because he looks like a young, muscle-less version of Joe Girardi. Several beers later, I put together the following list of athletes and celebrities who appear to be separated at birth. Coincidentally half of them are from Boston.

1. Edwar Ramirez and Chocolate Rain

2. Papi and Shrek

3. Ronaldhino and Jar-Jar Binks

4. Steve Young and porn star Peter North

5. Mike Lowell and this “Bear

6. Sam Cassell and ET

7. Dustin Pedroia and Giovanni Ribisi

8. Pedro’s Dwarf and Jobu

9. Jeff Van Gundy and Vincent Schiavelli (Mr Vargas from Fast Times at Ridgement High)

10. Justin Christian and Joe Girardi

Who else would you add to this list?  Leave them in the comments below.

Update at 1:15pm ET on 8/15/08: If you add links in your comment, we’ll add the photos.
