Jerseys and Hair Cuts

Canes released their new Rbk Edge uniforms today. Unlike some of the preceding jerseys, these are actually pretty good looking, and are pretty much the same as years past. The only difference is the piping around the shoulders (Photo Gallery), which, in my opinion, doesn't really add or detract from the jersey. It's just kind of there, if you know what I mean.

Actually, that's not even the thing that stuck in my mind about that particular photo gallery. Seriously, go to the second-to-last picture (I'd commandeer the picture if I knew how to do that from a flash gallery... but I don't, so the previous link will just have to suffice).

I know, I know. You're thinking that it's just another picture of Erik Cole - but upon further review, you can see that his hair is considerably longer! (And, therefore, he's cuter!)

I know about half of you readers just rolled your eyes at that last comment. But I don't care. Erik Cole - if, by some miracle, you're actually reading this blog (and you're not part of the half that just rolled their eyes) - the new hairstyle looks great! Don't cut it short again. Ever.

So, yeah... In conclusion: Jerseys = meh; Erik Cole's hair = Awesome!

Wow. Way to hit the nail on the head there. I did roll my eyes exactly as I read that. That hairstyle makes him look like a whipped school-boy, not a hockey player, at least, the 2nd to last one.

Don't feel bad. I prefer long hair on a guy. I think it makes Colesy look a little younger, too. :)

Jake: Whipped school-boy? I oughta sock you in the mouth for that one. May I remind you that I said nothing of the sort when you grew your hair out?

Mer: We are in complete agreement. Longer hair = cuter guys.

Another case in point: Brindy. His roster shot from 05 was awful - a year and a Cup later, he's got longer, wavy hair with a Superman-style curl on the forehead. MUCH better.

Come on! You can't think that retarded comb-over looks good!!! Sure, whatever, long hair = cuter, whatever you want to think, but comb-overs NEVER look good. Must I remind you of Mayes?

Ashley said...

Mer: Ooh... never really thought of that one. Good point, though.

Jake: I have no freakin' idea what you're looking at, because we are so obviously not looking at the same picture... Combover? I think the proper term is "bangs".

Jake said...

Yes. Bangs that are... ahem... COMBED OVER. Any way, I just hope that they stop focusing on the fact that he was injured for a while. Last year that got really old.

Ashley said...

*rolls eyes* Combed-over bangs? Riiight... I think you need to get your eyes checked...

I didn't mind the focus - as long as it was different news about his recovery.
