Johnny Damon ejected for arguing balls and strikes; bad haircut

Apr 22, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

Johnny Damon was ejected from last night’s Tigers-Angels game, ostensibly for arguing balls and strikes.  Word on the street, however, is that home plate umpire Dale Scott was less angry about his judgment being questioned than he was about his judgment being questioned by a 36 year-old man with this haircut:

Johnny Damon mohawk.jpgIf I was the umpire I’d have been less angry at the haircut itself than I would be at Damon’s apparent gutlessness. If you’re going with the mohawk, you’d better go full-Baracus with that bad boy. In fact I can guarantee you that Damon would have had a smaller strike zone last night if he hadn’t brought that weak haircut sauce.

    Someone get this man a gold chain and some spray on suntan. He’s got some Jager Bombs to put down.

    Crap…I just spent ten bucks for a hair cut and still look normal when I coulda made a statement. I obviously have no fashion sense.

    That’s rich. Calcaterra describing anyone of having weak haircut sauce.

    With that receding hairline, Damon shouldn’t do anything to call attention to his dome.

    just for the record… folks keep calling this a mohawk… it’s actually a faux-hawk… he clearly does not have the cajones to do a real mohawk (it’s what steroids do… shrink the cajones, that is)

    Maybe he’s just growing a cranial crest, you know, like a male basilisk. Jon Heyman already thinks he walks on water.
