I've always had a habit of comparing people I know or see (usually not to them, at least until I know them better) to someone famous. I am told that I usually get it accurate. So:

I know a doctor who looks just like Sarah Jessica Parker.

A few weeks ago my boss had a couple perspective clients come in, one looked like Jerry Reinsdorf, one looked like John McCain.

One of my employees is a dead ringer for Harold Baines. Same look, almost the same age, same demeanor, and looks just like him. A few years ago I bought him a White Sox jersey. Man, he could sign autographs and get away with it wearing that shirt!

So it got me thinking about White Sox players and White Sox Interactive.

When I was younger I was always told I resembled Ron Kittle.

What current or former player do you resemble?

Since I'm Half-Chinese, alot of people think I look Hispanic (don't ask, I have no idea why). I have thick, dark hair, so some people think I look like Carlos Quentin. Good for me, huh? :D:

Back in 2005 my one buddy said our friend was a dead ringer for Cliff Pollite so with the WS05 win I thought it would be funny to order him a #18 Pollite T-Shirt for Christmas. The Next season Pollite was pitching so bad that my friend didn't want to actually wear it to a game fearing that someone would punch him.

Back when I usta deliver beer there was a delivery guy that worked on the Budwieser truck that me and my driver would always referred to as Eddie Murray. He looked just like him! Instead of a Orioles hat he wore a Bud baseball cap, microphone hairdo and all...

I guess if I had to choose a Sox player that looked like me, it would have to be Greg Luzinski...

So your honestly saying you look like someone lit your face on fire and put it out with cleats? That takes some stones to admit up to saying you look like Ron Karkovice!

Years ago after the annual Diamond Dinner run by the sportswriters in Chicago, we were waiting at a parking garage for our car. My cousin started **** by saying toward my direction....."look it's Rich Gossage!" I actually HAD to sign some guys program for his kid. He wouldn't take the I'm not him line.:o:

The other night I looked like David Wells for about three hours while I drank a twelve-pack and ate 3/4 of a large Giordano's stuffed pepperoni pizza.

Off-topic, but this word is awesome.

Kip Wells. At least that's what my Dad used to say because he looked like a 12 year old at the time.

I've never gotten any WS references, however I get a TON of people saying I look like Eric Gagne. It's kinda funny considering I have the same first and last name as another current closer.

Back in my Florida days I had a goatee and my rugby buddies nicknamed me Konerko. I don't think I look much like him, but I must say I loved the nickname.

I have a former co-worker/bartender who looks like A.J. When I told him I discovered that A) he is a Cub fan and got insulted and B) more than one person has told him this.

Reddish gray hair with a goatee.

Back in the late 90's people told me I looked like Mark McGuire.

Now, I'd say I look like Harold Baines. :D:

Honestly, no idea. Karkovice, maybe?

One time I mentioned Kark to my dad and he said I quote. "Ron Karkovice was the ugliest son of a bitch I've ever seen."

My dad rocks.
