The Trogs cringe.
C’mon – that’s awesome. I played with a pitcher in college that did that – the only thing was, he was more like the character, and not Pap, who has amazing control.
Beware the Papelhawk (not my term, but I loved it when I read it).
I like it; I find it amusing.
He’s got a certain Travis Bickle thing going on, which, for a closer, I guess isn’t the worst thing. My question is what Youk would have had to do had he “won.” Isn’t Youk’s head already shaved? Would he have had to have *grown* a mohawk?
Proof that Steinbrenner may have a point.
What point is that Walein?
I think Walein is referring to the fact that the monomaniacal owner of the Yankees requires utter homogeneity, and that all hair must always be the same. No facial. No oddities. Walein is clearly in favor of the “emotionless automaton” clause. As for me, I’ll take the peabrainism and sheer joy that is Papelbon’s heinous ‘do.
the Travis Bickle observation is right on the money.
right down to the psycho gaze.
You sure it’s not the “what’s the number after 2?” gaze?
To me it looks like a “Maybe I’ll have a ham sandwich when I get home” kind of gaze.
Or it could be the “Youkilis. Y-O-O-C-K– no, wait, Y-E-W-K–, damn. I can’t spell that guy’s name” gaze.
It’s true SF…The kids these days with their rock n roll haircuts and the break school music, the baggy clothing and the crazy haircuts gets me all flummoxed. That kid needs a haircut you can set your watch to.
Is it true that the guy “won” a bet to get this haircut?
Yeah, he won the bet. Hence the numerous references I have made to what may be Papelbon’s very small brain.
What happened to the loser?
He had to go hunting with Dick Cheney.
Also had to spend an afternoon pruning Oogie’s shrubbery.
It’s a sad world when men can be allwed to go around yelling “Nee” at old women … or have atrocious haircuts like that.
Proof that Steinbrenner may have a point …
… on the top of his head.
