long lost twin?

This is Kevin Youkilis, also known as "Youk" or "YOOOOOUUUUUKKKKKK".
He is the first baseman for the Boston Red Sox.

Below are two more photos. One is a photo of Kevin Youkilis and the other is a photo of Cindy Ruth's husband, Scott. When I first met Scott, I kept staring at him trying to figure out who he reminded me of. It finally came to me. Can you see the resemblance?



I am borrowing the photo of Scott from the 2010 2nd Great Slow Travel Gathering Slow Travel In N Out Wine Tasting album (photo taken by WendyandRob).

*Update regarding my MLB.TV problem (see yesterday's post) - No email, no phone call, nothing! I am NOT happy! So far, I have been pretty patient. I am not sure how much longer this will last. Really, how difficult can it be to fix the problem? Grrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!

Interesting resemblance. Wonder if Cindy thinks they look alike. :)

Yes, I can definitely see the resemblance.
I am so sorry about the MLB.TV. Could you try calling them again and try to speak to a supervisor? I hate bad customer service, actually at this point, personally I would give up on the product or service if I am not satisfied with the customer service, but I know you want it. I'll send good vibes your way.

Long lost twin - yes! As a proud Bosox fan, I feel your pain - anything i can do besides sending positive thoughts your way?

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, wow the resemblance is amazing. Even their beard is almost identical. Sorry to hear about that MLB.TV has still not been resolved. Maybe it's time for you to be a squeaky wheel to those corporate people. I think you've been patient long enough.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and send some positive thoughts your way...

Scott Ruth:

Whoa! Even I'm not sure that's not me!


Wow, striking resemblence!

You must be SO frustrated with MLB, is there any other reliable source for the games?

What a beard!!! they both have.

Eden, not sure. Both Scott & Cindy Ruth don't know who Kevin Youkilis is (or at least until this blog post).

Candi, if I didn't care or there were alternate options, I definitely would be saying something like - screw you by now. Especially since it is now way past 48 hours - really 96 hours and no word from MLB.com!

menehune, isn't it amazing? Thanks for the offer. Not sure what you could do unless you know someone who works at MLB.com.

Kathy, I agree. I will be calling in the morning and demanding to speak to a supervisor before I say one thing about the problem. Enough is enough!

Scott, ha ha!! I bet if that wine bottle wasn't there you just might have thought that was you pulling the luggage! So have you ever played baseball? You never know, he may go into a profession after baseball where you could be his double!

sandra, yes indeed! Definitely a long lost twin! Sadly no other way to get the game - it is called the monopoly.

angie, I was stunned at how similar both beards are! Kevin Youkilis' beard is pretty famous. Right now there is a big vote going on as to if he should shave it and how to raise money for kids (his charitable organization). He has also done this in the past to raise money for kids.

Scott Ruth:

Never played baseball, but if Youkilis is willing to split his games with me then I'm willing to split his salary.
I've been told I'm related to Babe Ruth, but I've never followed up on that. So not knowing that I'm not, I'll say that I am :)

Scott :) Wow, Babe Ruth huh? Very cool! Seems that baseball is in your blood! If I read that Youkilis is looking for someone to double for him, I will surely let you know!
