This comes from Excitable Andi's place (no link, natch) as Sunday's "Face Of The Day," which features the top of some guy's head (and very little of his actual face):

Members of the soccer team from Sacramento, California, cut their hair into mohawks, a tradition started last year, during the Street Soccer USA Cup July 30, 2010 in downtown Washington, DC. Twenty two teams made up of 200 homeless men and women players will compete for three days in the nation's capital for the chance to represent the Untied States in the 56-nation Homeless World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in September.
While I'm sure this whole thing is meant to Raise Awareness™ about homelessness, am I the only one who thinks that the money spent flying the homeless soccer teams around (and figuring out how the hell to get them passports) might be better spent by finding them, you know, homes?
