The similarities are amazing, to the mind of one Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr.

Gareth Bale was the English Premier League player of the year last season while Broadus, aka Snoop Dogg, has "been player of the year many times." As such, he'd like to compare notes when he launches his world tour in Bale's homeland of Wales next Saturday.

Makes perfect sense.

Working in Snoop's favor is the fact that neither Tottenham Hotspur (the club for which Bale plays) nor Manchester United (where fellow Dogg-invitee Ryan Giggs plays) has a match that day.
