Weekly Hypothetical: One STL athlete takes over a famous Hollywood role. Go.
From a quick glance at his stats, we’re going to go ahead and assume that Colby Rasmus’ brief foray into the world of cornrows was done as an atypical method of busting his most recent slump. On Base Percentage down a few ticks? Braiding your hair can cure that. Pretty sure Bill James came up with that theory years ago.
Or was it for other reasons? Was it a joke to loosen up teammates? Was it a strange sign of independence aimed at his previous manager? Perhaps he just watched the movie ’10′ for the first time and loved Bo Derek’s hair?
What we know is that when Colby pulls a stunt like that, we’re finding a way to mock it on JoeSportsFan. That’s a fact, brother. So the instant we saw a photo of his new dome, our minds started running through the inevitable Hypothetical scenarios and now we need your input…
In an effort to curb his slump, former Cardinal Colby Rasmus opted to braid his hair into cornrows, prompting comparisons to Bo Derek from the movie ’10′.
Naturally, this begs the question, who from the St. Louis sports scene, past or present, would make the best transition to the big screen, and which character from Hollywood lore would he or she play? David Eckstein as Macaulay Culkin from Home Alone? You’re the casting director, now get to work and justify your selection.
