Catfish Stew, a weblog dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of Oakland Athletics baseball culture, hereby announces the following:
These pledges are made in conjunction with today's Oakland Athletics press release, which announces that Nick Swisher will be getting a haircut.
I think not.
1) Saw a little bit of the A's-Giants game on FSN tonight. They showed clips of Swisher meeting some troops before the game; he was wearing his baseball cap, but his hair was not pulled back--it was flopping down the sides and over his ears. Combined with his probably not having shaved in a week, I swear Swish looked like Teen Wolf. I was laughing for 5 minutes.
2)Gotta love it when the press release comes with the footnotes attached. It's like MLB is trying to prove that everything posted on its website is not hokum (come on, the "writer" covering the A's is Mychael Urban).
3) The Press Release also says Swisher is an "active participant" in Strikeouts for Troops. Does he donate money everytime he strikes out? If so, maybe there's still time to salvage this whole war in Iraq thing after all...
And if you know what I'm talking about without consulting wikipedia, you know far too much about Norse mythology.
