Unfortunate Hair Embarasses Cardinals

CINCINNATI, OH -- After a blow-out at the hands of the division's last-place Reds, several Cardinals tried to show their solidarity with a gesture that turned out to be as embarassing as the loss.

Larry Walker, Abraham Nuñez, Mark Grudzielanek, Einar Diaz, Albert Pujols, Scott Rolen, and Scott Seabol all visited a local barber shop to get matching haircuts. Each player had his hair cut close, with the first letter of his first name shaved into the back. However, when the players arrived at the ballpark this morning to show off their new do's, the media was quick to point out that the letters spelled out “LAME ASS.”

“That describes their game pretty well,” said Reds catcher Javier Valentín.

    And possibly the last. At least until next Tuesday and Wednesday.

  2. Both games are on TV next week, so I’ll be more real-time.

    Awesome. Looking forward to it.

    Good luck shopping.
