Talent is a rare and fickle thing. For even one person in your family to be world-class at anything is unlikely. But for two people who share the same parents to be famous? That’s downright silly. And yet here we are in a world full of Arquettes, Hasselbecks, and Williams. So when two brothers coach teams to the Super Bowl, it makes us wonder: who are the better uber-siblings: the Harbaughs or the Baldwins? Let’s go to the tape:
Tale of the tape
Harbaughs Vs. Baldwins: Which Pair Of Siblings Stand Out?
|Well, considering that John and Jim are headed to the Super Bowl, we'll say them. Also, we don't know if they have any other siblings.||BEST FAMILY MEMBERS||Alec and uh...cripes. Who's number 2? Billy? Stephen? Definitely not Daniel, in any case.|
|Jim and John. Good, healthy, American names.||BETTER NAMES||"(Bleep!) you, that's my name!" And the other name doesn't matter. It could be Aloysius and this one would win.|
|Heavens yes. Poor Frank Gore.||THROWS TEMPER TANTRUMS?||Without a doubt. Poor Alec Baldwin's daughter.|
|Leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl with a joyless Joe Flacco.||NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE ARGUABLY LESS FAMOUS BROTHER||Uh, "being intimate" with Cindy Crawford('s body double) in "Fair Game".|
|"Jive turkeys not welcome in the 49ers locker room." - Jim Harbaugh||Famous Quote?||"There are people who would rather choke than go see my movies. They write me letters all the time." - Alec Baldwin|
|Well, one will be a Super Bowl champ next week.||MOST NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT?||Alec is one of the few bankable SNL hosts, which is almost harder than winning a Super Bowl.|
|Naw...||ONE OF THEM GETS TO HANG OUT WITH TINA FEY?||Yeah!|
The winner is

Tale Of The Tape: Football vs. Futbol
With the World Cup still going strong and the NFL just weeks away from getting started it seemed like a fun idea to compare the two sports that share the same name…sort of. From the global “futbol” to the American “football” these sports are two of the most popular in their own right. As somewhat of a disclaimer I will add that this Tale of the Tape is being written by an American, though I am a big soccer fan. That being said, let’s start the debate.
Tale Of The Tape: World Cup Vs. Olympics
There are very few worldwide occurrences that captivate fans of every nation the way that the Olympics and World Cup have proven to do. When the time comes for either event you can bet that the majority of the world shifts their attention to these amazing month-long competitions. 2014 has been a great year for fans of the Olympics and the World Cup as both took place in the span of just a few months. With the World Cup still going strong and the Olympics fresh in the minds of fans across the globe, let’s see how they match up when placed side-by-side.
