Athlete: NFL cornerback Tracy Porter
New Look: The Lombardi Trophy carved into the top of his head (above)
The Reason: He was playing in the Super Bowl for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints.
The Result: The 'cut took him from "Who?" to "Ooooh, the guy with the crazy haircut who intercepted Peyton Manning to win the game? Ha!"
Athlete: NBA forward Drew Gooden
New Look: The death of his ducktail
The Reason: The ducktail was starting to get more attention than Drew did.
The Result: Well, no one talks about the ducktail anymore. Or Drew Gooden, for that matter. Mission accomplished?
