Hair

No, not the musical.  But it could be just as embarrassing.

It’s my hair.  Yeah, usually not something to blog about.  I don’t use “product,” as the cute girl at Great Clips asks me every time she cuts my hair.  I double up the shampoo and conditioner and be done with it.

Usually, I get my hair cut once a month.  I’ve spent the past couple weeks, however, being told by various people (mostly my girlfriend and my mother) that I should cut it.  It makes sense, because here’s where I’m at.

Not exactly the longest cut, of course, but considering I usually get it cut once a month, it’s getting shaggy.

The truth is, there’s a reason I haven’t cut my hair yet, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I’m living paycheck to paycheck.

I’m not cutting my hair because of the last day I got it cut: January 22nd, 2011.

I know what you’re thinking: holy crap, he’s handsome!  But January 22nd is a significant day.  It was the day after Milwaukee’s last conference loss.

Milwaukee has won nine straight conference games and won a conference championship in the time since I last got my hair clipped.

Is it stupid?  Absolutely.  Does it have an impact on the games? Absolutely not.  But every time I think of getting a haircut, a small voice in my head (that of Michael Poll) tells me that they could lose if  get my hair cut.

I noticed the day I got my haircut when I was going through receipts the day after the Wright State game, and decided that I’m going to keep the hair growing until the Panthers lose a conference game.  That didn’t happen in the regular season, and if it doesn’t in the Horizon League Tournament, I plan on getting it cut at the end of the season.

Just thought you’d all get a kick out of something ridiculous that one of our fans is doing.

It’s just a show of support. Every day my vision is obscured by my own hair, we’re closer to the tournament.

Please, let the ostracizing begin in the comments section below.
