Bulldogs Are Rollin’!!!

Last week, Christopher’s baseball team managed a come-from-behind win to earn a spot in the Final Four of the Greater Cincinnati Knothole City Tournament. After falling behind 9-2 early in the game, their bats woke up and they ended up winning 10-9. Today wasn’t quite as bad as the team was down 5-0 heading into the bottom of the 2nd but they still had to come from behind and ended up piling on a bunch of runs in the 4th inning to put away Mason 14-9. Christopher had a double, a single, 2 RBI and had a nice catch in right field to help the Bulldogs advance. Here are some highlights from this big win in the opening game of the Final Four!

And after celebrating a win…what’s the next thing you do?

Shave your head!

Of course!

Oh don’t worry…the coach got his!

Here’s hoping the Bulldogs can continue their run on Tuesday! If anything, they’re definitely gonna be a lot cooler without their hair…

Top 10 Reason To Love My Awful Haircut


Yeah…yeah…yeah. This new haircut sucks. But that’s okay. And here are the Top 10 reasons WHY it’s okay…despite what my family might say…

10. I’m cooler.
I don’t mean “style” wise. I’m talking my head is cooler now I don’t have anything keeping the heat in. Which is nice because it seems like I’m always hot. Must be PMS…

9. I use less shampoo.
Which in today’s economy is a plus.

8. Less grey!
Not that I have a lot…but it is definitely LESS noticeable now!

7. My head LOOKS bigger.
Sure…it’s shaped like an egg…but with less hair, it TOTALLY looks like I’m a super genious or something like that…

6. No haircut needed for a really, really loooooong time.
Yeah…it’s gonna be a while before THIS grows back…

5. No styling needed!
So now…instead of the 4 minutes I used to spend drying it and gelling it and making sure it looked good, I dry it with a towel aaaaaaand DONE!

4. I get to wear a baseball hat…
ALL the time! Yes!

3. It’s good for a laugh
Sure…I’m the butt of many jokes and my kids laugh at me hysterically, but I’ve always been one to take my misfortunes in stride and THIS cut is pretty silly lookin’…

2. My wife takes pity on me
I just give her the puppy dog eyes and take off my hat and she immediately looks at me and feels sympathetic. Its sad…but it works.

1. My hair does NOT look as bad as this…

Nuff said…


Funny…I don’t look anything like Dick Clark…

I remember there was a time when I laughed heartily (I like the word “heartily” but who EVER uses it in a spoken sentence? Not me.) at my best friend for a haircut that he got that just looked ridiculous. He had gone to some cheapo stylist and gotten it cut and afterwards? It looked silly. Well…I went to the barbershop the other day and told the guy I wanted it cut short.

So he did. He cut it short.

Waaaaaaaaay short.

“It’s called ‘The Princeton,'” the barber said. “If you like it, you can ask for it by name next time.”

Well…considering when I took off my hat my wife laughed at me, and then my son laughed at me, and then when my daughter came downstairs and was told that my hair looked funny but was told NOT to laugh and then when I took my hat off she laughed, I think it’s a pretty safe bet that I won’t be asking for “The Princeton” any time soon.

As a matter of fact, it’s a pretty safe assumption that I will NEVER be asking for “The Princeton” EVER.

So be forewarned. If you go to your local barber and ask for “The Princeton”, you will walk away looking like this…

And yes…apparently my head IS shaped like an egg. Who knew?
