Separated at birth? UGA’s Beckham v. MTV’s Alex

Add this share

Is it Gordon Beckham or Alex Binder from “Two-A-Days on MTV?

It’s tough to tell. And who really cares – would you mind if either chatted you up? I thought so.

Beckham is the junior shortstop for the Georgia Bulldogs, who play tonight for the College World Series title against Fresno State. Beckham, whose two-run homer propelled the Bulldogs to victory in Game 1, is a finalist for the Golden Spikes award, given to the best amateur player in the U.S. The Chicago White Sox drafted him eighth overall earlier this month.

Binder is the equally as studly No. 34 on the MTV show, which chronicles the lives of teens at Hoover High School in Hoover, Ala., near Birmingham. He later dropped football to play baseball for a nearby community college.

The sports blog Big League Stew compares the two in a post today and, well, they look like brothers. Thick bangs, sexy smile and built like college jocks. What more could you ask for?

Read more about Beckham here. Catch the game at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
