George Mason players growing their hair
If there's' one thing that's sure to earn a mention in this space, it's a D.C. athlete, media member, fan, resident, or cousin of an uncle of an arena janitor pledging either to cut or not to cut his or her hair.
And thus, let me present the George Mason basketball team -- winners of 12 straight, hottest team in the country, closing in on an NCAA at-large berth -- and their newest project.
"I told the press I'm not cuttin my hair til our winning streak is over," Ryan Pearson tweeted Tuesday night, after someone suggested he needs to get cleaned up. See above.
"#masonBball is about to be looking ROUGH for a while, no haircuts until we get this chip..." Paris Bennett tweeted Wednesday morning.
"lol im cutting my hair before we leave for our next game. Lol cant handle it nomore.lmao," Andre Cornelius wrote, perhaps putting an element of disunity into what should be a glorious day of unified growth.
I mean, you win three more games and start getting some noticeable ROUGH looks, and this hair will become a national storyline. I'm telling you.
Pearson, by the way, asked two more vital questions on Twitter in recent days.
1) What more do we have to do get ranked n the top25?
2) Anybody knows what the weather is like in Northern Iowa this weekend?
