Sometimes I’ll see a middle-aged woman walking down the street, or driving her kids to soccer practice, or doing whatever else it is that middle-aged women do, and I’ll think man, she really needs to stop dressing like her 16-year-old daughter.  While I assume that aging into the 40s and 50s can be frustrating, it happens to all of us (well, all of us who are fortunate enough to make it that far) and I believe that acceptance is key.  Like, to dress yourself up as a college student at age 45 doesn’t make you look any younger… it just makes it look as if you’re in denial, and maybe trying a bit too hard to avoid the inevitable.  Silly… that’s the best word I can come up with to describe the look.

While Carlos Boozer isn’t a middle-aged woman who wears American Eagle, he’s got the male version of the problem on his hands.  Follicle by follicle, Boozer’s hairline has been making a slow but steady escape from his forehead over the course of his NBA career.  For years he seemed content to do the mature thing and embrace baldness… but, apparently, he’s had a recent lapse in judgment.

One half of the image you can see at the top of this post is a photograph from last Friday night’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats.  The other half is a screenshot from ABC’s broadcast of Sunday’s game in Boston.  Now, I’ve never called Bosley to ask exactly how their treatments work, but I’m pretty sure there’s no way to make that much hair grow back in just two days’ time.  Even if such a thing is possible, I don’t think the regenerated hair would have the glow of fresh ink straight the f@ck out of a brand new Sharpie.

Carlos clearly did something unnatural to his head on Sunday morning.  I don’t know exactly what that something was, but it wasn’t fooling anyone, and it certainly wasn’t a good look.

Official –Swag-O-Meter– Rating:

1/5

Carlos………………….. c’mon son.  This is worse than LeBron’s geometric headband solution.  Stop it.
