This is the first in a series I’m calling Long Overdue Posts (LOP). There are a lot of things that I’ve thought to write about but for some reason I never get around to it.
So here’s the first:
At the NASCAR race at Infineon, back in June of this year, I met John Dugan, a sports writer for the Marin Independent Journal. We chatted in between the garages & haulers about different drivers and whatnot. Somehow we got on the subject of Clint Bowyer and how John seems to think that Bowyer resembles Ben Roethlisberger, quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
John says: “The biggest similarity between Bowyer and Roethlisberger is the protruding jaw and close-cropped hair. Unfortunately, since Big Ben’s little motorcycle faux pas, his face is all puffy and weird. But pre-accident, pre-beard, Big Ben had the same high cheekbones as Clint.”
Unfortunately I couldn’t find a photo of Roethlisberger without facial hair, so here’s the best I could do… What do you think? I see some of the similarities, but I wouldn’t call them the next DoubleMint Twins.
