Sports Hair of the Week

In a surprising twist, this week's RV99 Hair of the Week Award goes out to honor facial hair for the first tiem in the award's history. For his efforts to support cancer research and love for his mother during Mother's Day Weekend, Nick Swisher takes home this week's honor for his recently-died pink goatee. A group of children from Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, a national support group for those affected by pediatric cancer, watched as Swisher, catcher Toby Hall and SP John Danks took the pink plunge while seated on top of the White Sox's dugout on Wednesday afternoon. The players also made a donation on behalf of their teammates. Swisher said the players will keep the pink dye in place through at least Sunday -- maybe longer if they get hot.
