Anybody hear Hawk last night?

I did hear this. I would rather he went with the first one and dyed it any color the e-mailer wanted. A nice green or pink would have been cool. We would need lots of booth shots if that happened.

Not a bad idea. After all, when Lou Piniella did the dye job, we trounced the Rays.

But a 10-game streak... phew... long odds... c'mon, Hawk, make it five and we're dealin! Give our boys a first goal that's easier to reach, like all the psychologists say, and they'll build off the early success.

Baby steps, my man, baby steps... :smile:

If the Sox are going to stand a chance of winning 10 in a row, now is the time. Between playing Detroit, Cleveland, and Tampa Bay they have the best odds. Toronto might throw a wrench into the plans, but of coruse the Sox will find some way to beat themselves.

I'm betting that Hawk won't have to worry about shavign his head during the 2003 season. It won't even come close to happening.

I think the emailer was basing this on a comment Manuel made, where he basically said that his team didn't suck nearly as bad as Piniella's, so it would take a 10 game streak to get him to dye his hair.

FWIW, I'd vote for yellow with leopard spots, ala Rodman.

Does anyone find it ironic that Jerry Manuel first mentioned this 10 in a row idea after Lou died his hair (well getting fat on Jerry's Sox). Manuel said, "I've got a 10 in a row bunch, but I'd do something." As usual, a vague promise to try and motivate the group, but nothing concrete. Now 1 week later here comes Hawk...

On the pre- and post-games he doesn't wear a cap. If the Sox ever win 10 in a row, he might start wearing a cap, then. I'm sure he would show it at least once, the camera would catch it and it'd be played over and over again.

...now down to seven! That's 30% of his hair gone already!

While I still don't think Hawk will have to worry about sportin' a cleanhead (like the Hawk character on Spenser For Hire, now that I think of it), I wonder if someone can negotiate a deal with Hawk that says he goes mohawk after five???

Wimpy did it in 1989. He said he'd shave his head if the Sox won 8 in a row. When they did, Wimpy wimped out. He didn't shave it...just got a "burr". Weak.

Hawk better shave it to the skin!!!!

Remember in the movie "Major League", they had a cardboard cutout of the team owner & every time they won a game they'd peal off another piece of her clothing? The Sox should have one of Hawk & after every win, pluck off another big chunk of his hair.

Now if we only knew someone who could create those graphics then we could do that here at WSI...

Ha ha ha ha ha... Nice Hawk pics, WU! Starting to bear a striking resemblance to Steve Austin.

WU has some of the best graphics I've seen-

Since Hawk is "older" I hope just because he shaves his head his hair will grow back!!!

I've heard rumors of him dropping the name "Hawk" & going with "Bald Eagle". :D:

I like that sign they showed at the Cell: "We've seen a bald eagle but never a bald hawk!"
