A few days ago Parrish visited the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, a large waterfront facility in Seattle where the Seahawks train. According to Parrish's Instagram post, he had the opportunity "greet and meet" legendary coach Pete Carroll.
Only Parrish, who I must add has tremendous biceps, didn't actually meet Carroll, or posted the wrong photo, or something.
Parrish posted a photograph of he and some dude in Seahawks shirt that anyone can buy at Dick's Sporting Goods.
The bizarro Carroll is also a bit shorter, a few drops heavier, has speckled gray hair instead of Carroll's nearly powder mane, and pretty much only resembles Carroll as much as he does a typical 50-something white guy in Seattle in a Seahawks shirt.
Here's the photo, with this caption: "Great day at the VMAC and got to greet and meet legendary coach Pete Carroll !! Wow is all I can say !! #12th #Seahawks #superbowlchamps"
The man with Parrish probably would have a short career as a Carroll impersonator, though he's skilled at giving handshakes and just going with the flow.
If any of you are still mistaken, this is Carroll:
