You don’t see this every day:
That would be a young man’s hair, cut to resemble Spurs forward Matt Bonner, currently the NBA’s most talented red-head (sorry Scalabrine!).
The recipient of this haircut, a Texas middle-schooler named Patrick Gonzalez, caused quite a stir this week when he had Bonner’s mug carved into his scalp. Woodlake Hills, the fuddy-duddy school he goes to, decided this was a big no-no and suspended Gonzalez for a day due to the “distraction” the haircut caused. Not a lot going on at Woodlake Hills, eh?
The story has a happy ending, however. Though Gonzalez did indeed shave his ‘do, the Spurs gave him and his family tickets to Thursday night’s Game 2, a game in which Bonner scored only two points (perhaps he was distracted by Gonzalez’s shiny head?).
Jilted tween? Or brilliant ticket-getting maneuver? You be the judge.
