An Iron-Man Doppelganger

Cal Ripken revolutionized the shortstop position, proving that power hitting, big athletic guys could play a position usually reserved for light-hitting glovemen. Without him, players like A-Rod, Nomar, Jeter, Tulowitzki, hell, even Khalil Greene would never have played at the majors at shortstop, having long been moved to third or the outfield. Tom Colicchio is the head judge on Top Chef, which means he probably gets to blaze with Padma Lakshmi whenever he wants. I would never suggest that the in-his-prime Cal Ripken looks like Colicchio, but the latter day, let-himself-go Ripken clearly likes eating food, and Colicchio makes food! It’s almost too perfect! Please make sure to vote in the poll below to see if these doppelgangers can move on to the magical land of the permanent Doppelganger page here.
