Football. Or rather the lack thereof. You see even though they only play games in the fall, there is really something going on in the NFL all year. After the season is the postseason, then the Super Bowl, the draft and finally OTA's and minicamps. After minicamps the teams "break" for five weeks. It's like a deafening silence falls over the NFL. It's so inconsiderate of them to vacation. To add insult to injury Coach Hackman decided to not name a starting QB until Training Camp starts. So now not only am I left writhing in agony over what kind of hairstyle Trent will bring to camp, but also will he even be playing?
After five weeks of suffering, I finally got all my answers today. Yes, Trent will be starter through training camp. As for his hair:
You cut me deep there, Trent.
Where to start? The borderline mullet? The sideburns? Or...or..the goatee? Part of me wants to believe that his face looks like that because they ran out of razors in Western N.Y. and he had no choice, but that two inch patch of skin between his sideburns and goatee give him away. He did this to himself on purpose.
Obviously I couldn't just let this slide. I had to set him straight.
You can see it in his eyes, Trent was a little hurt by my honesty at first. But then we talked it out and it turns out the "hairstyle" is a good thing. If you remember, last year I told him to keep growing his hair because his hair is the key to winning a Super Bowl. I might have forgotten but Trent is still holding the faith in his hair. Since I started this I have to respect that, but Trent, the goatee and burns? My best guess is he must have lost a bet or something.
For those of you that are worried that my feelings on Trent's hair caused a rift between us, you can rest easy. Once we straightened out the whole hair fiasco, I made sure to mention to him that he had a nice tan.
And it made him happy.
Now if he could just get some of that hair off his face, I'd be happy too.
