The ranking of the Almighty Mullet seems to have been a big hit around here. But what about the 'fro? Seriously, how can an ugly ass of a haircut such as the mullet possibly compete with the more dignified afro? So in honor of Dan Lewis' exceptional "Top 11 Mullets", I proudly present the best of the best (worst?) afros as sported in the wide world of sports.
#10: Joakim Noah
Contrary to the photographic evidence, Joakim Noah's mom is one hot MILF. Evidently, her son did not inherit either her positive attributes towards physical appearance nor sense of style.
#9: Arthur Ashe
Arthur had it all; a great tennis game, grace, dignity, sense of civic pride and a tremendously well groomed afro. Today's modern athlete should take notice and emulate.
#8:World B. Free
Quite possibly the most grotesque afro in the history of mankind. However, he deserves full props for bravery of attempting to sprout a Chia Pet gone horribly awry.
#7: Hamish Marshall
The pride and joy of the Land of the Qiwis, this guy might be the first and last cricket player ever mentioned by a regular ArmchairGM user without the initials "A.H.".
#6:Irwin 'Fletch' Fletcher
"Playing for the Lakers....Irwin Fletcher....He's 6'3"...6'9" with the Afro"
#5: Ben Wallace
"Fear the 'Fro" was an absolute bust for the Chicago Bulls. LeBron and the Cavaliers better hope that Big Ben gets his act together and in a hurry.
#4: Kevin Keegan
No doubt, Keegan was probably a big hit in England on the soccer (football) field and in the pubs back in the 70s. One only guesses that his off the field shtick probably also included an open shirt and a large medallion. Mr. Posh Spice approvingly nods his head.
#3: Bake McBride
This guy is gonna sue Will Ferrell and the producers of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. McBride was the first and only "Shake n' Bake". Suck on that Cal Naughton, Jr.!
#2: Randy Moss
Memo to Robert Kraft: Straight cash homey!
#1: Oscar Gamble
This dude's playing weight was a buck sixty-five and odds are that half of it was accounted by the ferocious 'fro. Gamble not only possessed the best of the best of afros but may in fact have been the greatest athlete ever sporting one.
