    Technical Question

    Is Bronson Arroyo's haircut officially a "mullet"?

    I know in Bawl-stun it's probably very GQ to sport that kinda hair-do, but it Ap-puh-lay-chee-uh it closely resembles a mullet comparable to Danny Graves circa 1999. They used to have some cool "Fear the Mullet" banners up at the games back in the day and I wondered if it would be apprporiate to break out the banners again or would that just piss off ol' Bronson

    I say it's not, it's just long hair.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I like it when he has his hair in cornrows.

    whatever it is, it needs to be cut.

    No, it's not a mullet.

    Barry Melrose....now there's a mullet for you.

    Here's some pictoral definitions:

    A mullet:


    Another mullet:


    Its ugly balding cousin, the skullet:


    for comparison's sake, Bronson Arroyo:


    As one can clearly see, Bronson is not sporting the classic "Buisness in the front, party in the back" look. He merely utilizes the middle part on his longish hair.

    Contrast that to Barry Melrose, who utilizes the side part with the mullet... hideous:

    I don't think Arroyo has a technical mullet. But he is definately going for the grunge rock look. Think Scott Stapp. But I definately think he should go for the mullet because hitters fear the mullet. But then again, that is coming from a guy who lives in an area where mullets are common place... Adams County. Nothing scarier than a guy who actually thinks he looks good with a mullet, or even worse, a woman with a mullet. YIKES!

    "woman with a mullet" - see LPGA tour, where "ladymullets" once ruled. Not nearly as bad as it used to be.

    Would a "ladymullet" also be a "mullette"?

    I remember those banners from my days in high school geometry. Great times.

    Real mullet: think Richard Marx. Arroyo is just "casual". Or, because I cannot possibly derive enough amusement from his musical pursuits, "creedified".

    So, in one week, are these threads going to go away are will they continue to exist quietly in the shadow of actual baseball?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I hope they stick around... any day I can go find scary pictures of mullets on google images is a good day in my book. Does anyone else appreciate thatthe she-mullet was at a reds game? That means she lives somewhere near us.... scary thought.

    The mullet is a force that will live far beyond this baseball season. Long live the mullet!
