I've only gotten into sports with any seriousness in the past few years, and my favorite commentator for a while has been Colin Cowherd. His radio show airs from 9am to 11am on Double T 104.3 and I'm glad when I get out of work early enough to catch some of it.

He also does his radio show on TV on ESPN U, and a few years ago, a friend of mine commented that he and I look a lot alike.

I didn't really see it, and still don't. But we're not always good judges of that when asked to examine our looks.

Since then, I've had a number of people tell me we're pretty similar. This morning on "Good Day Lubbock" we did an on-screen comparison, thanks to my buddy Matt Ernst.

Click the video and be the judge.

And get this: my mom told me recently that she and my dad almost named me "Colin."


I promise Cowherd is not my favorite sports commentator because we supposedly look alike. But I guess it doesn't hurt.
