Freaky Friday - the hair edition

This is me today:

I have no idea why my right eye is squintier than the left one, but I digress. This is my hair today. It's a hot mess. The grey is out of control and I think my hair is thinning which depresses me. But this afternoon I have an overdue appointment for a cut and color. Come back Monday to see the results - no matter what they may be.

So in an attempt to connect this to Sarah's Fan Friday linkup, I give you just a few of my favorite hairstyles on athletes (and of course they're Pittsburgh-related):

Andrew McCutchen – Pittsburgh Pirates
There's just something about (well-maintained) dreadlocks that I can't resist.
Don't worry, Aaron knows this and he also knows that I like clean-shaven heads so we're all good there.
Also, the Pirates and the Reds start a weekend series tonight so keep a good thought for peace in our house.

Larry Fitzgerald – Arizona Cardinals

Even though Fitzgerald plays for Arizona, he DID go to the University of Pittsburgh.
And how stinkin' cute is he when he wears his glasses?

Troy Polamalu – Pittsburgh Steelers

Did anyone NOT see this coming? Head and Shoulders has a $1 million insurance policy on Troy's HAIR.
I can see why; it's freakin' gorgeous.

Now I'm even more depressed by my own hair. So to #backthatazzup with Whitney, here's a little song that will by my mantra today.

I Am Not My Hair by India.Arie on Grooveshark

Venus Trapped in Mars


  1. don't worry i have a weird eye thing too. haha! and i don't know how they deal with all that hair when they are on the field!

  2. I'll try not to barf of Troy's picture ;) But I love me some Larry dreds!!! Haha- awesome post! Seriously way too pumped for football season to get here!

  3. My one eye squinches (is that a word? it is now) more than the other in most photos.

  4. I now officially close my eyes in nearly every picture. Hmmm.

  5. My right eye is more squintier in photos than my left. Sounds like we all have that problem!

    Head and Shoulders really has an insurance policy on Troys hair????

  6. I vote for Larry Fitzgerald as the best here - he is a Minnesota boy and that trumps all :)

  7. Mannnn was I going to be disappointed if polamalu didn't make your list, but alas, there he is in all his hair glory!
