Sometimes it’s not just about the game. It’s about the hair.
College basketball’s one of the few sports in which fans can see nearly every aspect of a player. Their arms, legs, torsos, faces, it’s all in the open, and mostly in HD. And that means the hairdos – oh, the glorious hairdos – are also in the open.
That prompted Troy Machir over at Ballin’ Is a Habit to compile a photo archive of some of the game’s best ‘dos.
Is it silly? Yes. A waste of time? Maybe. But I’m with Troy. It sure is fun.
Check out what he says about Andre Coimbra of Central Michigan. (Yes, that’s him pictured above.)
I just don’t understand how somebody can play a close-quarters-game like basketball with such spacious hair. If I had to play against him, I’d get rather frustrated. Plus you have to wonder whether all that hair gets in the way of his brain processing information. I mean, why would somebody from Rio de Janeiro want to spend four years in Central Michigan?
Hey, Troy takes this seriously. So go give his stuff a look.
