Crazy Coincidences

Recommended Posts

Bruins    563

I stumbled across an extinct OJHL team (the deep Creamernet) named the Seguin Bruins and thought it was such an odd coincidence that a team's city would also be the name of a future player for the NHL club. So that got me wondering what other cases of crazy coincidences are there? Here's a few more i could think of:

That's not irony; it is just coincidence, such as Curtis Pride playing for the Nashua Pride.

 

Irony requires some collision of opposites, such as if the Devils had a player named "Angel".

I always thought Miroslav Satan played for the Devils, but apparently it was the black and red Sabres. Missed opportunity...

That's the closest we're going to get to this:

In case the autograph isn't clear, this is Dixie Walker . . . of the Yankees.  Does this fall in the "ironic coincidence" category?

Back in the day, Jim Gott pitched to Tim Teufel. Knowing a little German helps with this one.
