Can that thing on Drew Gooden's head spread to the PGA Tour?
Remember when Jay Leno used to be funny, before he took the job hosting the Tonight Show? His bit was, “I’ve got a beef,” then he’d go on for a while about some things that were bothering him. Excuse me while I borrow that, Jay.
Beef No. 1: What the hell is that piece of hair on the back of Drew Gooden’s head? I recently added the NBA to my sports television consumerism. I have always watched golf, baseball and football. But LeBron James is that good enough and Cleveland is close enough to make me into a fan.
Anyway, I was watching the Cavaliers dispatch the Wizards April 30 and I get a load of former University of Kansas big man Gooden with his head shaved except for a spot on the base of his skull, right where his spine hooks onto his head. The hair patch is as about as big as a taco.
Has this been there long? Maybe I’m an NBA newbie — I don’t watch during the regular season, but I kind of know what’s going on—but I haven’t seen something this inexplicable since Bill Cartwright’s booger beard from the early 1990s Bulls.
What if this hair style extends over the to the PGA Tour. Well, you’d never see it because everyone wears a hat. But you’d see it on the 18th, when they pull off their tops and shake hands.
After thinking about it, I guess it would be refreshing on the PGA Tour. Some personality, individualism. In the NBA, it seems kind of dumb.
