With This Absurd Life Choice as Inspiration, Which Philly Athlete is Most Likely to Shave a Logo into His Own Head?

With This Absurd Life Choice as Inspiration, Which Philly Athlete is Most Likely to Shave a Logo into His Own Head?

Behold Amir Johnson's head. (And his back. And that bar code he's rocking.)

The 6-foot-9 Toronto forward thought it a good idea to shave the Raptors' logo into the back of his skull and get it appropriately colored.

Two things race to mind:

1. David Puddy

2. The scene where Heath Ledger is threatening Maggie Gyllenhaal with the knife and tells her he stuck a razor in his mouth and, "did 'this' to [himself]."

Amir Johnson is basically saying the same thing, minus the facial scarring.

Anyhow, he got us thinking: Which Philadelphia athletes are the most likely to shave a logo into their own heads? Temple forward Anthony Lee pulled it off earlier this month, but who else is a candidate?

We've hastily put together a Top 5 list:

1. Andrew Bynum (Not a Sixers logo)

2. DeSean Jackson (Something sponsored)

3. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (Anything really)

4. Spencer Hawes (An elephant, although he already did this)

5. Nick Young (Either letters spelling out "Swaggy P" or a picture of his own face, preferably this one)

Alright, who and what did we forget? Go.

Brooks' 4 TDs leads Penn by Lehigh 65-47 in 60th meeting

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.

Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.

Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.

Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.

Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
