“I was Rhode Island born and Rhode Island bred, and when I die I’ll be [clap, clap] Rhode Island dead!” You know the rest. Good luck to the URI Rams in their match against the Oregon Ducks today. The winner heads to Kansas City to play the Michigan Wolverines in the Sweet Sixteen.
Okay, can we talk about hair for a minute? I love the hairstyle trends I’m seeing in the games this year. Obviously I’m talking about the black players, many of whom seem to be channeling a sort of Kid in Play/Sideshow Bob combo with hi-lo fades, curls, frohawks, and long twists tipped in blond. I love it all. (And, yes, I know I can’t touch your hair. And, yes, I know I can’t even ask if I can touch your hair.) Go here for a cool, visual glossary of terms.
The white guys seem to be going fairly conservative, or low maintenance, with one notable exception — West Virginia’s Nathan Adrian whose shaggy flowing locks are getting noticed. Go Mountaineers.
This picture would appear to be of Ram guard E.C. Matthews . . . I’m pretty sure.
Final Note: Hard fought game but Oregon won 75/72. Great season you guys.
