Hey, that Buckeye looks familiar!

Wish we could take credit for this post but we can't. MZone reader Chris sent us this link from Penn State's Scout message board with pix of some Buckeyes and their look-a-likes. Here are some of my favorites from the site...

First are the easy ones, such as Kyle Ruhl and Lurch (as the poster even says, there's a Lurch on every team)

And is it AJ Trapasso...or AJ Soprano?

Then there's Devin Barclay and Mr. Barry Manilow...

Keeping with the singer theme, what about James Laurinaitis and Clay Aiken?

And do you notice any similarities between Brian Hartline...and Howdy Doody?

Finally, I never realized there was such a striking resemblance between the OSU helmet...and a car covered in bird shit. But folks, take a look. It's uncanny...

Funny stuff, Nittany Lions. Funny stuff.

Bravo, Lions, Bravo!

Of course, the last one was the most hilarious one.

Andy said...

Wow. That is great. Nice job Penn State. Now beat them - PLEASE !!!!

WingRG said...

The post itself is pretty funny, just like the notion that Penn State will beat OSU this week.
White-out, or not white-out: Michael Robinson and Tamba Alhi AREN'T WALKING THROUGH THAT DOOR!

Oh, wait. Let me save you the time.

"whatever, LLLLLoyd is owned by sweater vest. 5-1 bitches, 5-1. That is all that matters."

I think the players should've donned the JT-sweater for their individual photos.

Doesn't it look like they attend some holy-roller, bible-thumper college?? (okay, maybe it's just me) They really do it up with those Olan Mills shots!

Does every college guy do that stupid shit to his hair these days?

change LLLLLoyd to "Cooper", "sweater vest" to Carr and welcome to our world in the 90's. karma sucks ;)

srudoff said...

oh and most were close but Laurinaitis was waaaaay off

that was too funny.

Shameless plug --
I entered my daughters picture (wearing her Michigan cheerleader outfit) in a Big Ten SuperFan contest with cardways.com -
I just don't have the heart to tell her were losing to pics of Michigan State fans...

I've always thought the buckeye helmet stickers look like Vonnegut's "asshole" in Breakfast of Champions...make me chuckle every time I see them, but I don't tend to share because slightly obscure reference.

Go Blue!

The only illustration I remember from that book was his illustration of a beaver (both of them). Hi ho. And so it goes. And damn, I don't remember the repetitive line from the other books.

whetstonebuck said...

Okay, it was pretty funny. However...

Did you notice that none of the Buckeye players had a buckstache? I think some props are due.

Also, tOSU helmet has a stripe. The car didn't. In fact the car looked a bit like the PSU uniforms: white with a smattering of more white here and there. Fashion plate city.

Is this the place where we predict the score?

tOSU - 34
PSU - 17

Please don't make fun of the Buckeye helmet sphincters.
