"If you looked at us on two different teams you really didn't even think that we were brothers," Travis continued. "We just had the same last name. Just because he's, like, the Neanderthal that wears flip flops in the winter and doesn't really care what he looks like, and I like to, you know, throw on fashionable stuff and have fun. Be a little bit more outspoken… And, you know, through the podcast we've been able to show everybody just how close we are as brothers."
