Professional Athletes Are Odd: Is It Better to Be That Dude, King, or a Viking?

Jul 26, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

DeSean Jackson wearing a hat that says “KING” to the first day of Philadelphia Eagles training camp is surprising in exactly zero ways. Jeremy Maclin wearing a shirt that says “I AM THAT DUDE” is a little less predictable. Todd Herremans showing up to camp with a unique new hairstyle not seen since the days of the vikings… well that’s a bit unexpected.

So, uh, really, what’s the deal with the Toddfather’s hair? Here’s what he told the Inqy:

“I got really into the History Channel, that show Vikings, and that’s where I got it from,” Herremans said of the shaved look. “So I’ve just been going with it. My girlfriend does it.”

Raise your hand if you thought that last line was going to be “My girlfriend hates it.”

Football players have a lot of time on their hands during the offseason to think about these things. That all changes today as the first full-team practice got underway just a short time ago. Football.
