The Charlie Davies scar

By Dan Steinberg

The first thing you notice if you talk to Charlie Davies is his skull scar. When I asked him about it last week, he said he would always keep his hair short, so that he can see that scar and be reminded of his accident.

What did the scar come from? Here's the brief version:

A shorter haircut reveals the scar he has from ear to ear arcing over the top of his skull. That scar came after doctors peeled his face off down to his chin in order to repair the multiple fractures that left his facial bones a shattered mess.

Davies described the resulting scar as "like a smiley face, with one eye." Deadspin called it the "gnarliest scar ever." Via D.C. United, you can judge for yourself.

I can see it now, devoted fans tattooing their heads to look like CD9's scar. And thank you for not showing the rest of his scars.

Yeah, I'd say the one on his belly holds the true title of "gnarliest scar ever"
