On the heels of Ron Artest's latest foray into the music world, Youbeenblinded.com has picked the best and worst rap performances by athletes. Not surprisingly, The Super Bowl Shuffle scored high marks since it is nothing short of awesome. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Kobe Bryant's pathetic attempt at hip-hop.

The Great SI Vault Twitter Avatar Contest
When I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run the SI Vault, Sports Illustrated's complete online archive. I also run the SI Vault Twitter feed, where you can go for funny/embarrassing photos such as Manute Bol boxing William "The Refrigerator" Perry or Punky Brewster posing with Marvin Hagler. This morning I asked for help with a new avatar pic, with the only rule being the athlete must have a good mullet or unique facial hair. After pouring through your e-mails, I'm proud to announce the winner -- Oscar Gamble. Thanks to everyone for writing in.
