The Boy From Brazil 

Cavs pay tribute to Sideshow Bob lookalike Anderson Varejao.

Cavs fans could break a world record at tonight's Brazilian Carnevale, when the team takes on the Orlando Magic. With samba bands playing and Brazilian flags flying throughout the arena, everyone will be given wigs that look like the out-of-control 'fro worn by the Cavs' 6-foot-10 forward (and Brazil native) Anderson Varejao. If more than 6,638 fans sport the faux locks at the same time, they'll trump the wig-wearing record set in April at a Detroit Pistons game. "The wig is basically just like his hair," says spokeswoman Brooke Novak. "Except that we did it in Cavaliers' colors of wine and gold."
