Troy Aikman & Jay-Z Memes: Best Funny Look-A-Like Memes


What happens when the NFC Championship Game turns into a 23-point blowout? While fans in Atlanta were no doubt enjoying every minute of the Falcons destroying the Packers to advance to their second Super Bowl in franchise history, the rest of the country went down a weird rabbit hole comparing rapper Jay-Z with FOX announcer Troy Aikman. Bored football fans started calling Troy Aikman the "white Jay-Z" which led to an influx of memes comparing photos of the two of them. Given Aikman is one of the announcers for Super Bowl 51, the comparisons will no doubt continue, but football fans will be hoping for a closer game than what they saw two weeks ago as the Patriots take on the Falcons. Physical similarities aside, the two public figures do have a lot in common. Jay-Z is one of the most iconic hip-hop artist of all time. According to Forbes, Jay-Z has a net worth of $610 million. As Jay-Z tried to tell us years ago he's "not a businessman/I'm a business, man". In addition to his 12 solo albums, Jay-Z has tried his hand at everything from an ownership stake in an NBA franchise (Brooklyn Nets) to an online streaming service (Tidal). Aikman along with Joe Buck are FOX's top NFL announcing duo and will call Super Bowl LI. Long before his announcing career, Aikman was a legendary NFL quarterback for one of the most recognizable sports franchises in the world. Aikman played 12 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys leading the team to three Super Bowls. He won Super Bowl XXVII (1992), Super Bowl XXVIII (1993) and Super Bowl XXX (1995). Over his career, Aikman threw for 32,942 yards and 165 touchdowns. Aikman's accomplishments could have been even more numerous had his career not been cut short with back issues and concussions. For all their accomplishments, the internet continues to have a little fun with Aikman and Jay-Z.
