Bryce Harper’s first of two homers caught by Jayson Werth look-a-like (Picture)

Jayson-Werth-look-a-like

How did opening day treat Bryce Harper? Put it this way: the 20-year-old phenom is on pace to hit 324 home runs this season. Harper hit a pair of home runs — in his first two at-bats of the season — and accounted for the only two RBIs of the game in the Washington Nationals’ 2-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Monday afternoon.

To make matters more exciting, a Jayson Werth look-a-like caught Harper’s first home run. As you can see from the photo above that DC Sports Bog passed along, the lucky fan was in full uniform and rocking the classic Werth beard and a pair of sunglasses. The MLB season may be only a day old, but we’ve already received a fantastic edition to our growing list of look-a-like fans.

As for the game itself, Nationals fans have to be thrilled with the way things played out. There is still a very, very long way to go, but Harper’s two home runs and Stephen Strasburg’s dominating seven innings of three-hit, no-run ball serve as a reminder that the franchise’s plan is coming to fruition. Assuming they can remain healthy, the Nats should be one of the most exciting teams in baseball all season long.

Kobe Bryant’s twin spotted at London Olympics, and it’s Erik Kynard (Pictures)

Kobe Bryant’s long lost twin was spotted at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics on Friday. Both Kevin Love and LeBron James shared pictures on Instagram and Twitter of Kobe and his “body double,” as Love called it. The resemblance between the two men is strong. NBA player Brandon Jennings, who is not on the Olympic team, thought the twin picture was hilarious.

After a bit of research, we learned via Kansas State’s Twitter the identity of Kobe’s doppleganger. The young man’s name is Erik Kynard, and he is a 21-year-old high jump specialist who attends Kansas State University.

While the two look really similar in the picture above, they look different in the photo snapped by LeBron James (seen below):

Yu Darvish look-alike fan spotted at Angels game (Pictures)

Which one is the real Yu Darvish? If you said the one on the right because he looks like he’s in the middle of an actual baseball game and doesn’t have a jersey that reads “Minivish” on the back of it, fair enough. If you said the one on the right because you can tell by the face, you’re lying. The photo on the left that you see above was passed along to us by Beto Duran of ESPN Radio in Los Angeles. Apparently this Darvish lookalike was roaming the stands at the Rangers-Angels game in Anaheim on Friday night.

If this Brett Favre impersonator can fool people in Green Bay and this guy can cause a stir in Seattle, the Yu look-alike deserves an award or something. Bravo.

Manny Pacquiao Lookalike Allan Rivera Manuel Fools MSG Audience (Pictures)

One of the two men pictured above is an impersonator. The other is boxer, congressman, and international icon, Manny Pacquiao. I bet you can’t guess which one is the real Pac Man.

It’s actually the guy on the right. The dude on the left is just a lookalike who happens to be a huge Manny Pacquiao fan.

The Pacquiao lookalike — an airport worker from Houston, Texas — showed up to the Nonito Donaire fight in New York City Saturday night. He fooled fans, security, and ushers as he walked through Madison Square Garden. It’s easy to see why — he looks exactly like Manny Pacquiao.

So who is the man that resembles the boxing star?

Brett Favre Impersonator Causing a Stir in Green Bay (Picture)

Experience has taught us that there are two types of lookalike fans roaming around: those who impersonate players just for fun and those who do it to cause a stir.  Impersonators like this one and this one are just looking for a cheap laugh or two, and to their credit they executed their plans to perfection.  Similar to this Tim Lincecum impersonator, the Brett Favre impersonator that is making the rounds in Green Bay is creating quite the buzz.  Can you tell the difference?

I would probably fall for it, too.  This guy looks exactly like Favre.  The only thing that would tip me off is that he’s not crying at a podium or pretending to retire.  Oh, and he’s wearing a Packers jersey.

Brian Wilson Look-alike Fan D.J. Silva Wears ESPYs Outfit to Giants Game

Giants closer Brian Wilson turned heads at the ESPYs with his spandex tuxedo that caught nearly everyone off-guard. The offbeat pitcher described the outfit by saying it felt like he was naked. I guess that’s a comfortable feeling. At least I hope that’s how it is, because one Wilson look-alike wore an identical outfit to the Giants-Phillies game Sunday. Check it out:

The fan in question is D.J. Silva, a young man from Roseville, Ca according to his newly created twitter profile. A woman who drove with him to the game described him as “a real cool guy that just happens to pull off the [Brian Wilson look] really well.

So what does Silva look like without the ESPYs tuxedo or even without the beard? Let’s take a look:

Ichiro Impersonator Tries to Make a Play on a Hit Down the Line (Video)

Wait, I’m confused. First of all, why is Ichiro sitting in the stands and not in the dugout while his team is up at the plate?  Secondly, why isn’t he allowed to touch the baseball?  Thirdly, why is he helping the other team?  Come on Ichiro, your team was just about to have a man on third with two outs.  Why would you pick up the ball and make him stay at second?  Maybe I missed something here.
