The most magical twins of all times in sport?
2011/03/18 | WesternCulture

Posted on 03/18/2011 9:15:25 AM PDT by WesternCulture

Time to discuss sports..

Has there EVER been a couple of twins more glorious than these guys (see link below) in any field of sport?

Have you got ice hockey where you live?

Hope you do.

Being from the same nation that they are, Sweden, please allow me to quote a Swedish newspaper citing a Canadian news source upon the arrival of the Sedin brothers to Vancouver;

"Sent from Heaven.. to play ice hockey"

They are.

Last week was our annual Minnesota state high school hockey tournament. They divide the tournament into two brackets according to school enrollment.

This year both championship games went into overtime. With the Class AA(large schools) going into triple-overtime!

Some truly great hockey!

- The only sports I've ever been good at are building Volvos and writing patriotic stuff on the Internet (and basketball to some extent).

But I love watching Sweden crush Russia in ice hockey tournaments and viewing our national football/soccer team sending out Italy (I love Italy though, don't get me wrong here) of the European Championship.

“Darrell and Michael Waltrip.”

- They truly deserve mention.

Thanks for contributing.

I believe Joe Niekro was a twin in 1987 and 1988.

I was going to say Whitney and Britney Stevens but I'm quite sure what they do is not a sport.

"Ima let you finish, but Beyonce has got the best twins of all time!"

Two guys were sitting in a bar. One looked around and said, "Hey! I just saw Mariah Carey." The other asked, "How do you know it was Mariah Carey?" The first replied, "Well, either that or it was two Vin Diesels."

Were you talkin’ brothers or twins in particular? There are about 15 years between the Waltrip brothers.

Less than 10, I think. I may have to look up their birthdays. I’m the non-fan born into a family of devout NASCAR-ites. My stepdad used to tease me because I thought DW was Michael’s daddy until I met Michael at a promotional event and asked him if his dad inspired his decision to race. Everybody got a kick out of that.

They ski mostly off resort, but when they are on the ski hills, especially when they telemark, people oooh and aaahhh. There may be better photographers in the world than Jason, but they can’t get to the places he, his brother and friends can.

The NW has places you see, and you can only dream of being there. Unless you look at his great pictures...

This is only the second year Jason has been pro photographer. He’s already getting some big shoots and contracts. Surprisingly, no camera company is smart enough to have them doing cold weather R/D for them.

He has quite the eye for natural beauty and the guts to ski those remote places. Thanks for sharing.
