HBO Real Sports recently profiled former Oakland Raider Barret Robbins as he attempts to recover from bi-polar disorder. Robbins is currently living in a halfway house in Houston as he rehabs following a violent confrontation with Miami police that left him nearly dead with two gunshot wounds. (Robbins attacked South Beach police in 2005 when they confronted him as he was breaking into a business.)

Robbins claims to be doing better, though his football career is obviously over and his marriage is hanging by a thread. His estranged wife Marisa and his two daughters currently live away from Robbins, in California.
So, why post about this now? Tell you after the jump.
When I saw the video of Mrs. Robbins talking to Andrea Kremer, my jaw dropped.
I hadn’t been able to figure out how to screen shot the vid - until now.
(Wow, Melissa and Marisa are almost like … nah, that’s too easy)
UPDATE: Emailer notes Marisa’s remarkable resemblance to Melissa Lima, wife of former MLB pitcher Jose Lima.
