The Chiefs and Eagles prepare to travel to Arizona for Super Bowl LVII.
Much has been made of the brother duo of Travis and Jason Kelce, but another set of brothers seems to be at odds ahead of the big game.
Steve Tazumi and Tom Patterson are twins born in Japan. The brothers were placed in an orphanage and eventually adopted by separate American families.

After the orphanage destroyed the twins’ records, their chances of reuniting dropped significantly. However, almost 40 years later the brothers were finally able to have their better reunion.
“So at the age of 40, I flew to Philadelphia to meet my twin brother for the first time,” Patterson said. FOX 2 News.

In the years since they got together, the brothers have formed a close relationship and share an interest in fitness.
“That’s what impressed me the most is that he owned a weight gym in Liberal, Kansas, and I owned a weight gym in Runnemede and Belmar, New Jersey,” Tazumi said.
They also had the chance to talk to each other about their love for soccer.
Tazumi is a self-proclaimed Eagles fan, while Patterson supports the Chiefs.
Patterson mentioned that Kelce’s siblings’ relationship reminded him of how he and Tazumi interacted.
“It seems that [Travis and Jason Kelce] We really enjoy each other’s company, and just like my brother and I, we also enjoy each other’s company,” Patterson said.

Tazumi noticed that soccer tends to be mentioned during their daily conversations.
“I think that’s what I miss the most is that we didn’t have a childhood,” Tazumi said. “We met at the age of 40, so we didn’t bond or play soccer together or anything like that. We talked almost every day and we talked about soccer every day. It’s been extraordinary.”
