I was reading my National Geographic while recovering from surgery and came across this. My first thought was that it is Cris Collinsworth from the Bengals and “Inside the NFL”. Nope, it is supposed to be a young Abraham Lincoln, but the resemblance is pretty strong. I did some research and I found this article that quotes Cris talking about his father – “His full name is Abraham Lincoln Collinsworth…” Now, that makes this even more interesting, though probably a coincidence. I’d like see Cris put on an Abe Lincoln beard and hat and see what he looks like.
Side-by-side maybe not so much, but at a first glance.
Update: Inside the NFL used this for their December 30th, 2011 show. Unfortunately they didn’t give me any credit and I can’t find a video of it to show. If any does let me know. I’d like to link to it.
