interesting point, you dug deep on that one though I dont think it was meant to offend, just humor.

Racist? It said he looks like an Eskimo. What's racist about that? He does. It didn't say it was a bad thing, in fact most people liked the look. People are so sensitive these days...

If it says he looks like an indian, and he is an indian, there's absolutely nothing racist about it. Would it be racist if I said you look Irish, and you were Irish?

It's not pointing race out that makes something racist, it's talking about race in a derogatory way.

While not a racist poll... who the hell cares what he looks like. He's paid to play ball. And that he does.

Cutting one's hair and shaving are two of the more unnatural things you can do to your body. Cutting the hair, at least occasinaly, makes sense for practical reasons like not getting lynched by a chairlift :-?

Dragging a metal blade across your face, though? I'll pass....

He-he. I do shave pretty regularly, but go through periods where I just don't feel like it. And I certainly respect anyone that doesn't feel like shaving.

But I know some oif you shave your vaginas, so....
