World Cup separated at birth

Germany World Cup Coach Joachim Loew, actor Tom Cruise and American filmmaker Ken Burns. Loew is revered in Germany. Cruise, er, not so much. Burns's baseball documentary probably didn't convert any Germans to the American pastime.

But are Ken Burns and Tom Cruise nosepickers?

No I think his doppelganger is Bryan Ferry . . . here is BF, and inside a soccer stadium no less . . . . enjoy the Hot Tub Time Machine!

Tom's eyes are the closest. Ken Burns for the rest of the features tho.

Suarez = Henry = Maradona = LiLo

Lindsay Lohan is headed to jail for 90 days for violating terms of probation in her 2007 drug case. Judge Marsha Revel threw out the results of the alcohol detection ankle bracelet but considered the nine court-ordered alcohol education classes [Lindsey] Lohan skipped. "It's like someone who cheats but doesn't think it's cheating if they don't get caught," Revel said.

You managed to find something I care about less than the basketball silly season. I can't wait until The Savior of Basketball blesses us with his decision.

Bryan Ferry and Kyle MacLaughlin are close but his real doppelganger is singer Brett Anderson of the old Britpop band Suede. Even Suede fansites have declared him to be a ringer for Brett:

And don't ever compare him to that annoying Tom Cruise ever again. Please.

Ha!

I watched some last night while at the gym -- too many stories, not enough racing. Great finish here, wish I could see it.

I still like the Maradona and Wolfman Jack comparison.

Put 'em all in a lineup, all wearing the white t-shirt and navy blue cardigan that Loew favored during the group stages, and I defy anyone to tell them apart!

This all confirms my belief that Germany will win because they have the best-looking coach.
