Actors, athletes, and politicians always seem to dominate that list.
Yeah, I know. People who pretend to be others, adults who get paid to play games, and slimy liars.
But every so often, a true hero comes forth. I present one of these heroes, David Traver.
America's Most Humble HeroAgainst world-wide competition, and in a contest normally dominated by Germany, Mr. Traver brought home the gold a few weeks ago.
In Alaska, the home of manly men and nervous sheep, Mr Traver, a real life Mr T., battled his way to the top of the heap in
the 2009 World Beard and Moustache Championship.
Mr T and his beard stylist worked hard to craft and dye his beard into the shape of a snowshoe that simply wowed the judges.
Like a true champion, immediately following the competition, Mr T announced his retirement and vowed to shave.
