Big Picture Categories: Sports families

King's Cup might be the best drinking game out there. Everyone has their own version, there's ample drinking and sometimes -- on a few lucky occasions -- hot chicks end up naked. One of the best "games" in King's Cup is Categories, which often is represented by the Jack card. In Categories, the person who draws the card says a category (fast food joints, baseball stadiums, etc.) and everyone must go around the circle naming one until somebody stumbles. When that person fucks up, they drink. Make sense? Good.

No too relevant, but damn, there are a lot of families who have had multiple members play sports. Brothers, father and sons, cousins...sports are a big, incestuous community.

Today's category will be naming all players, coaches, etc. who have had a relative play in a professional sports league. Let's keep it to the big four (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL). Relatives don't have to have played at the same time. We'll start and you guys continue in the comments. You can go again after every five comments. First person to fuck up has to pound some bottom-shelf vodka and chase it with bottom-shelf gin.

We'll start with an obvious one: the Griffeys.

All right, people. Spit your knowledge of sports' best families in the comments.
