And The Hair Angels Wept*

16 Aug

Guillermo-OchoaNot only are we bidding adieu to another headband, we’re saying goodbye to one of the most luscious heads of hair in all of football. I, for one, am inconsolable. (*Sorry I traumatized some of you! I amended the title for better clarity.)

AfNtydLMemo Ochoa chopped off those gorgeous curls.  WHHHHHHYYYYYY? The expressions of his companions on either side mirror the emotional journey I went through when I saw this picture.

Guy 1; :::nervously chewing fingernail::  “But doesn’t he understand that hair is the source of all power?  You wear a headband to show that your almighty awesomeness can’t be contained! Who is Memo without his curls? Does he even exist? Who am I? Do I have a purpose? AAAARRRRGH!” ::has existential breakdown::

Guy 2:  “Nope. Nope. NOPE. I cannot, will not accept this. I was here expressly to watch that glorious barnet bounce and behave and sass it all up in the Malaga sunshine. As soon as this meeting is over, I’m calling my damn agent. I did not sign up for this shit.

I am full of sadness. ::pours one out for Memo’s ‘fro::  I am not good with change, especially of the hair kind.

    Good lord….lI thought he died!

    I will miss the hair….but with all the news of famous people dying lately….I guess I misinterpreted the headline.

      Yeah me too, pheeeww, thank god!
      Better his hair than him. Though I’m also heartbroken about him cutting his hair and with it all the pervy thoughts I had about it.

    Since I watched him when he was at America, he always had curly hair. It’s like my dad, who had a handlebar moustache. He had it from 1955 to 2000. He didn’t do chemotherapy because of that. He had liver cancer.

    So I too will miss his curles. Maybe that’s his Achilles heel. Hope not.

    And Lozil, would he be a fit if he went to RM this year? I’m not sure. But for now I’m trying to find places to find various matches. I only get NBCSports. I live in an assisted living place and they won’t allow add ones even If we could. I gotta break out of this place!

      The last thing we need is another goalkeeper. We have enough drama as it is!

      If you can’t get the matches, I’d try a stream – that’s what I do when I can’t get a match.

      But be careful not to install any of the things that pop up – it’s all malware.

    I so enjoyed watching his thick mop of hair…it will be missed. But perhaps he will let it grow back!
