Best Beards in Sports History

Sports Beards: In honor of the alleged Brady/Moss spat about hair and beards, Sports Illustrated has reached into its photo vault and is running a pictorial of the best beards in sports history.     Randy Moss shouldn’t be listed first, but I guess they had to have their hook.  Featured beards include the Kimbo Slice, Lanny McDonald, and Alexi Lalas.  My personal favorite is former Flyer Bill Flett, who looks like he could walk across the Delaware River and feed five thousand fans in Camden.  Among the NFL players: Braylon Edwards, Dan Fouts, Ricky Williams, Franco Harris, Lyle Alzado, and the Patriots offensive linemen.  I would have gone with Merlin Olsen and Mean Joe Greene.  In honor of the recent rise of the beard, I’m about a week in to getting my start on a Fouts-style playoff beard, though I’m afraid it will turn out more like an Orton.

Because you want to see it first!
