Listen, I grew up in NH and I love Boston sports teams. Everyone who reads Project Swole regularly, knows I am a Patriots fan. I will root for them this season, with their lame running backs, high speed receivers, and what appeared in the preseason as a Swiss cheese defense.
What I refuse to do however, is to praise or even acknowledge Tom Brady’s hair. I had seen glimpses of it and heard the rumors that many New England fans were boycotting any discussion of the 2010 hairdo. I feared the worst, but hoped for the best.
My fears have been validated.
Today in an article on ESPN.com about Tom Brady’s car accident this morning, I found a picture that will forever taint my mental imagery of the two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback. It is so heinous that I find great difficulty posting it on my blog.
Tom Brady’s Hair
I post this image in hopes that Tom will reconsider his current follicle faux-pas, and return his bushy mane to its once-masculine, close cropped, entirely non-emo, Super Bowl winning shortness. From this point forward, I shall never speak of it again.
Without further ado, I present you with The Haircut From Hell:
Tom Brady’s Hair
At least he didn’t get hurt in the wreck.
The hair rocks! He looks like a commanding frespirit who will pull of some innovative move in the clutch. His hair projects attitude and that’s what a mature QB should be pressing right now. Is Bundschen’s husband allowed to do commercials for dandruff shampoo?
I think it’s great Tom is letting it grow long. He is not an actor or male model. He is always expected to keep a conservative look by his fans. He needs to change his image from a goody two shoes to a bad ass quarterback. Looking forward to seeing it fly out from under the helmet on those rough plays. Keep it growing Tom down your back.
Eh, it’s a haircut. I don’t have to wear it, and if TB likes it, I say screw the critics.
