SBM Exclusive: Sports Doppelgangers, Volume 58 – The Winter Olympics Edition

Since today marks the last day of the Sochi Olympics, it’s time to point out this Olympiad’s slate of look-alikes.

For starters, we can point out the transition from the Olympics to baseball’s spring training with the resemblance between Washington Nationals’ outfielder Jayson Werth and Norwegian skier Per Spett.

Speaking of the Norwegians, we couldn’t help but notice their curling teams’ pants had to have been inspired by the bus from the 1970’s sit-com “The Partridge Family.”

Then, there is the man who brought us this Olympiad, Russian president Vladimir Putin, who has a decidedly canine appearance.

We close by paying homage to pre-haircut Shawn White, whose influence in filling the Winter Olympics with bullshit quasi-sports made for stoners only makes us realize how much he looks like Swiss curling legend Mirjam Ott.

The resemblance between Ott and White is a bit weird, because she isn’t nearly as butt-ugly as White…as his resemblance to “mask” main character Rocky Dennis illustrates.

  1. please explain in detail why snowboarding is any less a sport than skiing.

  2. No wonder Sochi’s got so many stray dogs.

    Putin’s obviously been “breeding” them.
