The Best Faces in Sports
Kobe Bryant is serious.
Well, he has been for years, but we must have not been getting the point. So Kobe has started making a scary face when he does something good to show us that he is serious.
The Black Mamba is not the only one. There are plenty of great faces being made every day. Let's take a look at The Best Faces in Sports.
The Peyton Manning "I can't believe that just happened" face, is one of the best in sports.
As made popular by Bill Simmons of ESPN, the Peyton Manning face has officially become the "Manning Face", now that his younger brother has started sporting it after mistakes.
The lips pressed tightly together with the gaze pointed downwards. No Colts loss is complete without it.
The Tim Duncan "You can't possibly be calling a foul on me, I have never committed a foul in my life" face.
Duncan uses this face whenever things don't go his way.
For instance, just imagine him making this face when the checkout lady at the grocery store tells him, "I'm sorry Mr. Duncan, this coupon is expired."
The Andy Pettitte "Intense stare over the glove" face.
Otherwise known as the Andy Pettitte "I really enjoy the smell of my glove" face.
The Glenn Davis "Kevin Garnett just made me cry" face.
When you reach the age of 15, it is officially not okay to cry in public. When you are a 6'9", almost 300 pound man on national television, it is really not okay to cry in public.
Check out this youtube video which caught him crying.
The Al Davis "Creature of the Undead" face.
If Raiders fans want to scare their kids, just tell them that when they go to sleep, Al Davis will come out from under their bed and eat them.
Or hire them to coach the team. I'm not sure which is scarier.
The Tubby Smith "Stare of Death" face.
Tubby Smith once turned a player to stone after he committed three turnovers in a row. Just by staring at him.
The Tiger Woods "I just made another huge putt" face.
You know the old wives tale about how your eyes will pop out if you don't close them when you sneeze? I think the same goes for Tiger when he has a victory scream.
The Dwight Howard "I'm just having too much fun" face.
Howard seems like the happiest guy in the NBA. He always has a giant grin plastered on his face.
That may serve him well when he spends the offseason getting killed for not having good enough post moves.
The Manny Ramirez "Blank stare and smile" face.
I used to think that was his "I wonder if there's going to be cake after the game" face.
Now I think it's more along the lines of his "Did I remember to take my fertility drugs today?" face.
The Kobe Bryant "I really mean it this time" face.
I know he's trying to look mean, but it just reminds me too much of a kid who didn't get their way sticking his bottom lip out to pout.
That or Slingblade.
The Anderson Varejao "Somebody touched me! Quick, scream and go down" face.
If Varejao actually suffered the amount of bodily harm he portrayed over his career, he would have been pronounced legally dead four times by now.
