Jayson Werth has a doppelganger in the Olympics

Feb 10, 2014, 6:38 PM EDT

Has anybody heard from Jayson Werth recently? Either he has taken up skiing under an assumed name in a foreign country or he has a doppelganger. See the resemblance here?

Werth’s doppelganger is Per Spett, a mogul skier from Sweden. The beard is more out of control than Werth’s and a cursory glance at Google says they don’t look all that alike without the goggles, but it works for me. The big question is, can Werth do a front flip?

    He’ll tear your lungs out, Jim.

      Nice Zevon reference. 10 points

        Werth has lots of dopplegangers. The other ones are on Duck Dynasty.

    Spett crashed and burned in the round of 12 in the moguls. Canadians finished first, second and fourth in the finals. The top American was 6th.

      Canadians are good at winter sports? Shocking…

        So far, so good. 3 golds, 3 silvers and 1 bronze. Ahead of the Russians.

        We do good counter invasions, too.

        You are confusing yourself with the Brits. But I will take me one or two of those French Canadian girls.

      • Old Gator - Feb 10, 2014 at 7:22 PM

        Re-think that one. They’re great during. You’ll wish there had been no pillow talk, though, and you better like poutine breath and having cigarette smoke blown in your face.

        They are too busy collecting syrup and grilling up elk steaks for any of that.

        We are not a confused people. We get our border crossed, your women come and tell us, we counter invade and burn stuff. That isn’t confusing at all. And none of this “it was the British” froo-fra. It was us Canadians. Or, as we liked to call ourselves at that time, “The Differently British”. It took us a few years to politely inform the royal people that we got it and don’t need them to be part our country anymore in any real way, but we did get around to it eventually. We just did it politely and all. To avoid hurting anyone’s feelings.

        And FYI, we rock at winter stuff. In particular we rock at winter driving. Especially a kind of winter driving that involves driving to Florida before it snows. We’re very good at that. Its like an invasion, only politer.

        By the way, the Dutch are doing exceptionally well in the Hans Brinker events. They are 3, 2 and 2 in the medal standings.

      • chacochicken - Feb 10, 2014 at 8:47 PM

        Yes, you Canadians love bringing your damn RVs down south and then driving 55 mph in the left lane of our interstates. Who won the Battles of Lake Erie and New Orleans?

        Thanks again for Detroit! Eat ’em up, Tigers!

        Amusingly enough, in last night’s lecture, I talked about the founding of Hudson’s Bay Company (or HBC), which received a monopoly grant from Charles II over the fur trade in the Hudson Bay area. Eventually, the company transitioned to retail and it operates today in the US as Saks and Lord & Taylor. HBC provided the parade uniforms for the Canadians in this year’s Olympics. It just goes to show those royal monopoly rights pay off long-term.

    Uuh…a pic without the ginormous ski headgear on would’ve been a nice touch.

    He still looks more like Edge.

    Let’s just say everyone with a hairy face is Werth’s doppelganger while we’re at it, since that’s the only resemblance here. The guy on TV referenced Werth too. Did Chris Chase write this Yahoo-style piece?

  6. prospero63 - Feb 10, 2014 at 9:31 PM

    I’m confused. Is this supposed to be humor or is it a racist characterization of bearded white dudes, you know, ’cause they all look alike?

    • dexterismyhero - Feb 11, 2014 at 3:28 PM

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!!

  7. jm91rs - Feb 11, 2014 at 10:29 AM

    Anyone else watch the Moguls and wonder how those dudes are even able to walk after the age of 30? That has to be so hard on the knees and back. It looks so painful.
