My old car had this happen and I have seen it on others.

Why would it be hard for them both to leak at the same time?

Yes, it can happen, but is very very rare. The thermostat and water pump are different parts and fail differently. Yes, you may have had this happen to you, but that does not make it a common occurrence. When evaluating situations you have to look at the overall picture and not take your own situation as being everyone experience. If you read the many posts on cooling system failures, you will usually only find 1 item broke or sprung a leak.
