I think just Whompy Ice sounds better. Like you said, that's a nickname you earn

Kirk Hinrich (NBA - Bulls) and Harry Potter (Quiddich - Gryffendork)

 

:unsure:

 

But really, saw a tidbit on ESPN this morning... Tom Crean (coach of Indiana's hoops team) married the Harbaugh boys' big sister and their second cousin is (Gilbert?) Gottfreid, head coach of NC State's hoops.

My brother is a twice divorced single Father of 3, unemployed, and doesn't really have any friends. So, you know, we're still competing, but at a slightly lower level than the Harbaughs.

Probably a lot of this in Motorsports, all the Unsers, Petties, Andrettis etc.

 

In Formula One you had both Michael and Ralph Shummacher for some years.

 

In motorcycle road racing there are some familes of brothers in the US that have done well over their careers (Haydens, Bostroms).

How about the Gronkowski brothers. Not sure but I think there is about 4 of them and I hear their all very athletic... I'm sure their parents are very proud.

Ray Lewis recorded his first sack on 10/13/96 against the Colts. Care to guess who the QB was?

Another Brother Act: Ortiz Brothers Win Seven Straight Races

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a good weekend for brothers.

 

The highest profile brother act took place on the gridiron, when siblings Jim and John Harbaugh coached their respective terms to Super Bowl berths. Jim’s San Francisco 49ers overcame a halftime deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24, while John’s Baltimore Ravens beat the New England Patriots, 28-13. The February 3 showdown will be the first time that brothers have coached against each other in the Super Bowl.

 

But while the Harbaughs were making headlines, two brothers were quietly putting on quite a show at Aqueduct Racetrack in Ozone Park, Queens.

 

José Ortiz, 19, and his older brother, Irad, Jr., 20, won the first seven races on Aqueduct’s nine-race Sunday card. Each brother scored a natural hat trick, with Jose taking the day’s first three races and Irad winning the next four. Irad finished second to his brother in the third race for an $11 all-Ortiz exacta.

 

Irad was back in New York, where he rides regularly, after attending Saturday night’s Eclipse Awards at Gulfstream Park in Florida, where he was a finalist for an Eclipse for outstanding apprentice jockey. The two brothers currently top the Aqueduct jockey standings, Jose’s 40 wins getting the edge on his older sibling’s 33. Each won three races on Saturday. The brothers’ highest price winner on Sunday was Irad’s $9.80 payout for $2 bet on Nothing But Air in the sixth race. The brothers hail from Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, where each began his riding career. 2012 was a breakout year for Irad; he won his first Grade 1 race and finished the year with $9,125,562 in purse earnings (jockeys typically earn 10% of the owner’s share of the purse). José, who will have apprentice jockey status until March, earned $3,016,408 in purse money last year.

 

“We did good, but we rode good horses today,” said Jose. “We got lucky, thank God, and the horses won.”

Update: On Monday at Aqueduct, Irad won five races, Jose one. Jose finished second six times, three times to Jose.
