NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Sometimes the things people are remembered for aren't their greatest accomplishments. That's the case for former Tennessee Titans president/CEO Steve Underwood. After joining the organization in 1991, Underwood retired last week from his full-time role. But when the team made the announcement, it was Underwood's facial hair that stole the show and went viral, drawing comparisons ranging from a bird's beak to the Lorax.
Memes began to appear on social media with pictures of Titans players with Underwood's thick mustache and connecting beard on their faces.

ESPN's Dan Le Batard said it's a shame that Underwood's "facial hair that makes it look like he doesn't have lips" is just now becoming known to everyone.
