Talent is a rare and fickle thing. For even one person in your family to be world-class at anything is unlikely. But for two people who share the same parents to be famous? That’s downright silly. And yet here we are in a world full of Arquettes, Hasselbecks, and Williams. So when two brothers coach teams to the Super Bowl, it makes us wonder: who are the better uber-siblings: the Harbaughs or the Baldwins? Let’s go to the tape:
Tale of the tape
Harbaughs Vs. Baldwins: Which Pair Of Siblings Stand Out?
|Well, considering that John and Jim are headed to the Super Bowl, we'll say them. Also, we don't know if they have any other siblings.||BEST FAMILY MEMBERS||Alec and uh...cripes. Who's number 2? Billy? Stephen? Definitely not Daniel, in any case.|
|Jim and John. Good, healthy, American names.||BETTER NAMES||"(Bleep!) you, that's my name!" And the other name doesn't matter. It could be Aloysius and this one would win.|
|Heavens yes. Poor Frank Gore.||THROWS TEMPER TANTRUMS?||Without a doubt. Poor Alec Baldwin's daughter.|
|Leading the Ravens to the Super Bowl with a joyless Joe Flacco.||NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE ARGUABLY LESS FAMOUS BROTHER||Uh, "being intimate" with Cindy Crawford('s body double) in "Fair Game".|
|"Jive turkeys not welcome in the 49ers locker room." - Jim Harbaugh||Famous Quote?||"There are people who would rather choke than go see my movies. They write me letters all the time." - Alec Baldwin|
|Well, one will be a Super Bowl champ next week.||MOST NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT?||Alec is one of the few bankable SNL hosts, which is almost harder than winning a Super Bowl.|
|Naw...||ONE OF THEM GETS TO HANG OUT WITH TINA FEY?||Yeah!|
The winner is
