Ben Roethlisberger

As yet ESPN refuses to report on the story that the Pittsburgh Steelers QB has been accused of rape. What do you readers think, is this a racial thing? If Ben were a Pacman Jones would ESPN ignore the story? Is it just a marketing concern (Ben is on Shaq’s new reality show, plus MNF)?

ESPN claims they don’t report civil trials, but a simple google search shows that in fact, they do, constantly. For example, two years ago when Randy Moss was sued by a woman, and won his case. Of course, he’s black… And a troublemaker unlike Roethlisberger, who hasn’t ever been in trouble… Except when he crashed his bike or was photographed getting belligerently drunk…

What’s your explanation for ESPN’s (in)actions?

I Am Jack’s Throbbing Doppelganger

After being the choice of many for the Cy Young award last season, instead, Justin Verlander suffered through the worst of his young career. He has bounced back in spectacular fashion this season though and remains the only bright spot on my otherwise miserable fantasy baseball pitching staff. One of the best actors of his generation, Ed Norton has avoided the pitfalls of over-saturation for the time being and has had the fortune of being in some incredible movies. Of course, he’s also incredible, so it goes both ways. Verlander and Norton go only one way, to the PERMANENT doppelgangers page! (We hope! Vote in the poll below!)

You Know What I Like About Doppelgangers?

Tim Lincecum has dominated baseball the last 2.5 years, unfortunately, he plays his games for the San Francisco Giants who have zero offense. Despite that he won the first of his Cy Youngs and is on his way to earning several more. The pint-sized ace wears his hair long and doesn’t take any guff from the older kids. In 1993, Wiley Wiggins — who incidentally looks like this now — played young Mitch Kramer in Dazed and Confused; the young future freshman phenom pitcher who narrowly escapes the evil clutches of Ben Affleck. I have zero doubt in my mind that, at some point this season, Randy Johnson has chased Lincecum around the clubhouse with a paddle. I also have little doubt that Lincecum has dumped paint onto Bengie Molina from a hotel balcony.

As ever, please vote in the poll below and visit the permanent Doppelgangers page by going HERE.

Ow, My Face

Here’s Jens Voight taking a brutal digger during the Tour de France and going way too far via the asphalt-face means of travel. I thought it was a BIKE race…
