Hair And Sportsmen: What's The Link?
Obviously, as you are all aware, NWG is an upstanding citizen; highly read; greatly regarded; extraordinarily intelligent and terribly witty.
It may come as some what of a shock to know that she reads (on occasion) The Sun. Yes, that's right. She's in touch with the masses.
And it may also come as a surprise to you and to her, that on the back page was a little advert for some kind of hair-reversing-bald remedy.
And guess who it was?
None other than Mr. Funny: Michael Vaughan. And as he says: "They've answered my hair loss problem."
Well whoop de doo.
This got NWG thinking. What it is about sportsmen and going bald? Is it more likely as a sportsman that you lose your hair or is it just the ex-sporting type that are willing (or broke) to advertise for it? And why is it always cricketers (Graham Gooch, Shane Warne etc.)?
Does playing sport mean that you are more likely to lose your hair? Is it wearing a helmet? Is it all the head scratching moments when you don't know what to do?
So many questions and so little answers.
Who will be next? Andrew Strauss? Matt Prior?
