In a little less than two weeks, the two boys in this 1971 snapshot, John in the middle and Jim on the right, will coach against each other in the Superbowl.
That two brothers could end up as head coaches in the NFL is maybe not quite as improbable as two brothers both being Superbowl-winning NFL quarterbacks—and neither is quite as amazing as the Williams sisters—but that they'd end up coaching their teams to Championships in the same year ranks as a strange coincidence.
And it goes to show, you never really know what the future is going to see in a photograph...even a mundane family snapshot like this one.
