My soft-flowing hair should be the “Eighth Wonder of the World.” It’s that glorious. Men covet it. Women fawn over it.
So that’s how confident I felt about dismissing the New Orleans Saints after the team’s 0-2 start in 2017. I put my hair on the line during an episode of “Dunc & Holder” on Sports 1280 AM and NOLA.com after the Saints fell in Week 2. The video proof is below:
The Saints proceeded to win eight consecutive games after my grand proclamation. They finished the regular season 11-5 and as the NFC South champions.
I’ll take all the credit for being the team’s motivating factor. I’ll also have to pay the price and shave my head.
I’ll have my hair completely shredded at Tracey’s Original Irish Bar (2604 Magazine Street) 4 p.m.-6 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
Columnist Jeff Duncan will certainly have the first chop at my hair for being the person to claim a 10-win season for the Saints. Many others will fight for the chance to finish the job.
