Bored NFC championship viewers decided Troy Aikman and Jay Z are lookalikes

The NFC Championship game wasn’t the most enthralling television for the average NFL fan, as the Atlanta Falcons dominated the Green Bay Packers from the start en route to a 42-14 victory.

So some folks watching the Fox broadcast decided to amuse themselves by pointing out a similarity in appearance between commentator Troy Aikman and rapper Jay Z.

Apparently this guy was the first to make the observation.

Then it took on a life of its own, with some people using photos to help prove the point.

Others stated their case in the form of rap.
