I came across this photo of current sports idol Tim Tebow's rookie hazing haircut.  Veteran players put rookies in their place by giving them "unique haircuts."

Among Chamorros, this kind of a hair cut is called ma dåsai San Vicente.  San Vicente's haircut.  Why?  Take a look.
San Vicente Ferrer

Saint Vincent Ferrer was a Spanish saint and was well-known in the Marianas.  Many Chamorro homes had images of him, with his characteristic wings (his angelic life) and finger pointing to heaven.  And his monastic hair style stands out, too.

Apparently, the ma dåsai San Vicente can come in and out of fashion through the years.
