Sports Illustrated is insulting Pakistanis by leaving out the great beards from Saeed Anwar (who started the trend), Inzamam-ul-haq, and Mohammed Yousuf. They are far better than the average American efforts.
After enjoying your selection of sportsmen sporting beards, I was compelled to send my two favourites: Peter Disztil and Antal Roth, from the disappointing Hungary team at the Mexico '86 World Cup. When I was a young child, this pair used to give me nightmares.
One man's nightmare is another's dream.
