NFL fans tuning into the Winter Olympics in Pyongyang, South Korea will be doing a double take when they see Team USA curling sensation Matt Hamilton take the ice to throw the stones in the mixed doubles competition.
Hamilton has been described by his coach as the bad boy of curling, as he often shocks many traditionalists with Tiger Woods-style fist pumps, but he’s also a doppelganger of a younger, slimmer Andy Reid.
Hamilton has the trademark ginger stache, and in a red Team USA cap and shirt, he’s a dead ringer for the Chiefs’ coach. Hamilton is actually from Wisconsin and a huge Aaron Rodgers fan. He thinks he looks more like Rodgers because of his mustache. Yeah, nice try buddy.

So far, Hamilton and his sister Becca are 1-1 at the Olympics with a win over the Russians. We can only guess what will happen if he needs a playoff to get into the medal round.
This sound from team #USA curling’s win over #OAR (Russian Athletes) will make you an instant fan. Bro/sis team of Matt and Becca Hamilton. #Hamfam.#WinterOlympics @MikeTrimWPTV @AshleighWalters @glennglazer @EmersonLotzia (Via @RODGER_SHERMAN) pic.twitter.com/mZ8W7Jcspv
