Down on the Farm: Get a haircut!

Email News Alerts

Never thought I'd see the day, but there I was last week yelling at the television, "Good grief man, get a haircut!"

The target of my outburst, who will never care in the least, was Twins pitcher Glen Perkins.


Maybe I was irked because he had just given up a home run to an aging member of the ever-losing Chicago Cubs. Maybe it is the close-ups on HD televison that forces you to see every stray hair glisten under the ballpark's kleig lights.
