Greg Gumbel is bald. Just sayin’.

I sit here at the window listening to Greg Gumbel’s announcer guy voice. And it strikes me what a coward he is. There’s nothing wrong with being bald, dude. Testosterone is a perfectly decent molecule and as you well know it can scurry all around and sometimes loiter proximal to your scalp. So it then binds to this, which causes that, and everybody knows this is normal. We call it ‘men’.

But this? Is lame.

Shout out to the muffin man. Greg Gumbel incidentally was born only minutes after World War II. No kidding, he is sixty seven years old. What about this other sports dude? This man was once a sportscaster in Chicago back in the early seventies:

Sports bro’ was losing his hair and nobody cared. Rockin’ a comb-over and talkin’ bout’ the Cubs. Baseball! Men!

Bald happens. But this? Cough.

Professional tain’ality cushing a network gig. With a crow’s nest of horse hair on his head. Sad.

  1. avatar Rev. Howard Furst says:

    This is your final warning. Despite your laudable defense of proud baldness, Jehovah does not look kindly upon youngsters who make fun of bald gentlemen:

    2 Kings 2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

    2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

  2. avatar toma says:

    So the LORD is bald, too. Some of us take it pretty hard.

    Folks might not find it particularly exemplary behavior on His part, Reverend, to rend defenseless children by way of ursine wildlife, but I wouldn’t complain about it either, for obvious reasons.
