Best Unibrows in Sports History
Pelicans forward Anthony Davis made his debut on the SI cover this week with the headline "Time to Really Fear the Brow." The cover story can be read online here. Though Davis has emerged as the best young talent in the NBA, it’s his unique unibrow that's been the most recognizable feature on him for the past few years. In honor of Davis, we put together this gallery of noteable unibrows in sports history.
Strip Club Hero
Georgia offensive tackle Zach DeBell wanted to blow off some steam, so like any good 21-year-old college student, he went to a strip club (Toppers International Showbar in Athens, to be precise). But then another customer got unruly with a dancer and DeBell sprung into action, carried the man outside by his belt and collar and “placed him on the sidewalk outside the front doorway.” I spoke with one of my sources at UGA who confirmed this story as 100% true.

Be A Good Person Friday
I received an email this morning from a woman named Robin Zaborek, the Executive Director of a small nonprofit called the Down Syndrome-Autism Connection. There are a lot of organizations that help out with Down Syndrome and Autism, but Robin's is believed to be the only organization that helps patients who have both disabilities. Robin's daughter, who passed away over two years ago, was one of those unfortunate few. I say this every week and I don't want to be annoying, but if you have anything -- even $5 or $10 -- please donate. It's amazing how good you'll feel. To learn more, visit the website of the Down Syndrome-Autism Connection and donate today.
