Week's Wackiest Photos

From a popcorn-loving mascot to Dwight Howard's bizarre blazer, check out the week's weirdest photos.


Tark the Shark Tribute

Former UNLV coach Jerry Tarakanian passed away last week at the age of 84. To honor him, former Runnin' Rebels teammates Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon, Anderson Hunt, Moses Scurry and Chris Jeter got matching tattoos. Since you asked, here's a photo of LJ and Augmon in class from their UNLV days. I only wish Michigan's Fab Five got along as well as their Runnin' Rebel counterparts.

A-Rod Writes Like a Girl

The Wall Street Journal assigned a handwriting expert to weigh in on Alex Rodriguez's apology letter. As the headline suggests, A-Rod's penmanship isn't so manly. "Feminine writing is more rounded, with a lot of connections, which he has throughout this," said certified master graphologist Paula A. Sassi. "And a right slant. Masculine writing tends to be more angled, straight up and down, maybe printed."

I still think Welcome Back, Kotter is the best TV theme song of all time (or a close second to Greatest American Hero). What do you think?
