I tuned in to the Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics broadcast on Sunday and noticed something very peculiar during the pre-game warmups:
What the hell is that on Carlos Boozer’s head? It looks like it was drawn in with a Sharpie. I can’t believe it didn’t start running down his face as soon as he broke a sweat.
You see, I’ve been a Duke basketball fan since owning a Starter jacket back in the early 90’s, so I’ve followed Carlos Boozer’s entire career. In his early Duke days he had a relatively square hairline, but by the time he was an upper-classmen his hairline was receding in what is commonly known as male-patterned baldness. He, like many men in his situation, began shaving his head. For reference, this is Boozer last year and again Sunday night:
Going bald is a sensitive condition that many men deal with at a certain point in their lives, some earlier than others. While most people go with the shaven head solution, others opt for treatments like Rogaine, hair pieces or even surgery. Soccer star Wayne Rooney famously got a hair transplant to fix his receding hairline last year. But covering up your bald spots with a Sharpie, or whatever this actually is… c’mon Carlos! Just keep shaving your head man, you look ridiculous.
