Creepy Comparison #52: It's Your Head That Makes You Look Fat
These guys brought to my attention how much the young, chubby Mike Hampton resembles the fat, coked-up Jack Black. And not only do they share the same taste in shitty attire, but they also share the same taste for piles and piles of artery clogging deep-fried food.
I've never been a huge Jack Black fan - he sort of peaked back in "High Fidelity" - and I've never been a fan of Mike Hampton - except when I see his name scroll across the injury ticker, because what isn't funny about a guy who has the same pain tolerance as a hyper-sensitive only child from Greenwich, CT?
Is it a coincidence that both of these guys put on their best professional performance - Hampton in '99, Black in '00 - within 6 months of each other? Who knows, but the overwhelmingly vague and weak connection seems a little odd to me.
