8th Anniversary for Andre Agassi & Steffi Graf

Despite other suitors, including a young fan (video footage), tennis star Steffi Graf married  Andre Agassi on October 22, 2001. Agassi still had hair and Graf still had all of all of her glorious nose.

While their appearances have changed and their tennis skills declined, the two have thrown their energies into the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education.

But that’s not say that Agassi is a total angel. Agassi once struck his wife with a vicious backhand during this fund raiser in Houston (YouTube footage).

Troy Polamalu Inspires Hair Envy

On ESPN’s First Take, bald Steeler receiver Hines Ward said he would love to have Troy Polamalu‘s hair for one day, but only for one day because it takes Polamalu 45 minutes to shampoo his hair.

Through the magic of Photoshop, Polamalu’s long hair was placed on all of the analysts, including grumpy Skip Bayless. The hair didn’t suit Bayless as much as the toupee he currently wears.

Benjamin Netanyahu Needs Friends

Nobody rocks the Likud Party quite like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. And nobody combs it over quite like today’s birthday boy.

Born in Tel Aviv on October 21, 1949, Netanyahu is a Libra who keeps busy planning for an attack on Iran’s nuclear weapons program, but still finds time to update his Facebook page. Everybody needs friends.

ESPN’s NFL Live took a break from football news today when analysts Trent Dilfer and Tim Hasselbeck began debating who had more hair. Both claimed the thicker mane, but Hasselbeck claimed the only thing Dilfer had more of was back hair.

Evander Holyfield Keeps Fighting & Grilling

Evander Holyfield

Former heavyweight champion Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield was born on October 19, 1962.

After losing his hair and the heavyweight title, Holyfield probably figured he couldn’t lose much more. Then Mike Tyson ate away part of his ear, years of punches killed numerous gray cells, and then creditors took his money. Now he’s dong Burger King commercials, begging for more fights and even hawking his own Real Deal Grill that looks suspiciously similar to George Foreman’s much more successful grill.
