Young Craig Biggio looks just like Tom Brady, may be his secret relative
Biggio and Brady look alike, may secretly be related
This week, Astros legend Craig Biggio was voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame with 82.7 percent of the vote alongside Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz.
But, the Astros shared some evidence on Twitter that Biggio might not just be a Hall of Famer -- he might also be the secret relative of a future Hall of Famer.
He just happens to play a different sport:
OK, that is uncanny. But no, the similarities don't stop there:
It gets weirder. You see, before the Patriots quarterback was Tom Brady, future NFL Hall of Famer, he was Tom Brady, MLB catching prospect.
By the way, the "Gregg" and "Barry" he's talking about there were a couple MLB players named Gregg Jefferies and Barry Bonds.
Biggio, on the other hand, wasn't quite the two-sport prospect that Brady was. He was a talented football player in high school, earning a comparison to Doug Flutie from Boston College coach Jack Bicknell. That praise actually prompted a position change for Biggio:
But, while Biggio excelled on the high school football field, he didn't quite make the same impact in college. Not that he didn't try:
When a Hall of Fame career is your backup plan, that's not a bad situation. And when the Astros drafted him in the first round of the 1987 First-Year Player Draft?
So, let's see: Biggio and Brady look similar, they both played baseball and football at the same positions and they're both heading to the Hall of Fame (in Brady's case, eventually). Occam's razor suggests the simplest answer is likely the correct one, which in this case clearly means Brady and Biggio are secretly related and simply never bothered to tell any of us.
