To get us prepared for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings, the CSR staff decided to have a little fun at Mike Zimmer’s expense by borrowing the ‘looks like game’ concept from The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz on ESPN.
Ed. Note - The Looks Like Game is the best thing that anyone does at ESPN and it’s not even close. If you’ve never experienced it before I highly recommend it. Trust me.
Below is a collection of our best efforts to figure out exactly what/who Mike Zimmer looks like. Feel free to discuss your favorite ones in the comments section, and you can even provide your own if you feel up to it.
Disclaimer: This is all in good fun. We’re not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings here, so if you happen to stumble across this Mike, we sincerely hope you understand that we’re mostly kidding.
