Would you believe that this guy ...

and this guy ...

are the same person as this guy?

Meet Tim Lincecum, ace pitcher for the San Francisco Giants baseball team.  He had been noted for his long, messy hair.  Then a few days ago he decided to get a haircut.  When I first saw his picture in the paper, I did not recognize him!  It wasn’t until I read the story that I realized who that was.  His teammates say he looks like Buddy Holly.  He doesn’t really need glasses.  These are non-prescription, and just for show.  As long as his pitching arm remains strong!


~~ Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have

~~ Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

~~ How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

~~ Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

~~ How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?


  1. Nice Before and After snaps of the young man. A pitcher, too? Must check back.

  2. I've been told that in our culture, hair is one of a person's most recognizable features, and in cultures where everybody's hair is black, hair is the last thing people notice; that someone from, say, Japan, tends not to remember if a Caucasian was blonde or redheaded or brunette--it's just not the snapshot their brain takes.

    I don't know if that's true, but it's an intriguing theory. Nine years ago my daughter and were together and a Vietnamese woman insisted we were sisters, right?, because I didn't have any wrinkles in my face. I laughed, and went, but my hair is gray! No, she said, but no wrinkles!

  3. I quite like Tim's new look. I have recently come around to being a fan of short haircuts! Hee Hee Hee

  4. I don't recognize people if they change their hair style, and tend to confuse people who have the same style. Alison, that's a really interesting theory!
