There is no question the closer I get to 40 years old, the further I fall out of touch with the kids. It was bound to happen.
I don't get flat-billed baseball hats cranked to the side.
I don't get sea-shell necklaces.
I don't get vampire movies.
And no, I don't get what Elvis Andrus is doing.
Elvis was on our show a few months ago (EDIT: Actually, June 22) and as I sat next to him, I noticed he was doing something odd with his hair. It was all about some crazy yellow color that he put in there, and then you could see that he was letting it grow out. So, I snapped a picture for Twitter purposes.
But, recently, Elvis has rolled out a new hairdo, and P1 Justin sent me pictures from last night's game showing what Elvis is doing:
I think the evidence is indisputable. He has fake braids. He has hair extensions. He got his hair did. It is like he wants to be Ronnie Belliard without the time investment.
Who does this? Who gets hair extensions? I mean, what man does this? After watching "Good Hair", I realize 90% of African-American women do it, but dudes?
Has it come to this? Am I the old man here?
