Hair Is Temporary, Class Is Permanent

Posted by gauloises1 on July 16, 2009

Marca.com has a photo retrospective of how athletes’ appearances have changed over time.

I think Boss might have been a vampire. But he got better.

Once an asshat, always an asshat.

    i’m sorry – those are hilarious. juanqui has definately improved, ‘nando, well, er. i’ll stop now. :)))

    I still can’t believe Gasol used to look like that.

    Asshat kind of looks like a vampire in the current shot. I won’t even comment on his past. About Roger, I would still do him in his “before” picture but the blond madness is one I try very hard to forget.

    What’s disconcerting me is that I’m pretty sure Nando has exactly the same amount of hair, but it’s just been redistributed.

    I forget JCF’s short hair. And is that a mullet on Arantxa?

    And did everyone go through a horrible blond phase except me?

    I’ll take an asshat with a Feli on the side, thanks!

    Sweet Jesus! Is the Boss like 12 in that first picture?

    And Nando is definitely best viewed AT A DISTANCE, that’s for sure. Both of those pictures are going to give me nightmares.

    Your caption for Verdasco could also be used for Garcia, IMO. I’m hoping to see another epic Sergio choke at the British Open this weekend…

    I have no words for Gasol. Other than every time I see him I always alternate between thinking he looks like Jaffar (spelling?) from Aladdin or a giraffe.

  8. awful fernando :S :S :S

    Yikes! That “before” pic of Verdasco should be illegal. But why is he and @asshat exactly?

    JFC is fine specimen no matter how you cut it :)

    Meaning I never had bad blond highlights or a bad dye job and never had the desire to have blond hair. Am I the only one?

    And I like the new blog theme Gaul!

    Thanks! And for some murky reason lost in the mists of my adolescence, I have a thing for bad blond dye jobs on guys …

  13. irefusetotellyou said

    I, too, never succumbed to the pressure of blonde hair dye. (Praise Jesus for that.)

    But seriously — what guy decides that it would be a great idea to bleach his BROWN hair?
    I’m looking at you, ROGER.

    JAFAR!

    I seriously had a dream about Aladdin last night . . . weeeeird
