There’s a NASCAR driver named Ryan Ellis. There’s an NHL player for the Predators, currently playing in the Stanley Cup, who’s also named Ryan Ellis.
So this was a pretty funny little Twitter spree that NASCAR Ryan Ellis went on this afternoon. He’s known about the #OtherRyanEllis for some time now, as you can see here him finding out they both have dad’s named Jim:
The man, the myth, the legend.#OtherRyanEllis

But today it got weirder when Chris Gordon tweeted out that they also share middle names. That’s when NASCAR Ryan Ellis’ brain melted.

Just two Ryan James Ellis-es out in the world doing their thing. This also may be proof we’re living in the matrix. But nonetheless, a fun little story on a slow Friday afternoon.
Earlier this week, he made sure to distinguish the two in his Twitter profile
