Seahawks and their celebrity dopplegangers, because why not?
By Lee Vowell
The Seahawks have six weeks left before training camp starts. Some Seattle players might turn into their spirit humans. This is who some Seahawks might be.
You know how famous people can be, yeah? They may not like to be recognized. Seahawks players are the same way. Want to go out in public if you are a Seattle player? Maybe try dressing as someone different.
I like to think Seattle players could turn into others who resemble them in spirit, if not looks. And this is who I think may make the best dopplegangers for Seahawks in character and mannerisms.
Doug Baldwin is clearly Mark Ruffalo
Baldwin doesn’t look too much like Ruffalo, but that is basically where the dissimilarities end. Both the actor and the receiver do excellent work and are mostly underappreciated. Both people lean to the left politically. And both speak in clear and intelligent tones. Seriously? Is there any more similar people on earth?
Russell Wilson is Barrack Obama
Have you really listened to these two people speak? I mean, really listen in an interview? I think except for Obama’s more polish inflection, they could be giving the same interview. Both tend to be on the Pete Carroll side of optimism. Wilson is more of a salesperson and Obama more of the political idealist. Besides, that one of them was the former President but I can’t tell which one. (I also think Pete Carroll is Obama too, by the way.)
Tyler Lockett is Donald Glover, Jr.
Glover and Lockett are about the same height. Glover in one inch taller at five-foot-ten. But again, this article isn’t about looks. The fact is both Glover and Lockett are useful players but not exactly big stars. Yet. Glover is on his way, most likely. And Lockett is still underutilized. If Lockett can stay healthy and Glover can get the Lando film, both people will be important in 2018 and beyond.
Next: Not all former Seahawks are hating on the team...
So I have three dopplegangers here. And why be boring as far as “this person looks like this other one.” You might have a cousin that looks an awful lot like Justin Britt. But maybe he is nothing like the Seattle center. These three Seahawks seem to be like other human beings in important ways. And isn’t that what dopplegangers should really be?
