Get A Crewcut: Manny's Hair (Salon) Not Welcome In Chicago

Aug 31, 2010

Chicago - White Sox Sox GM Ken Williams has reportedly turned down new DH Manny Ramirez's offer to get a haircut in exchange for two years' free rent for his struggling hair salon, Chez Manny, at U.S. Cellular Field.

"I wanna be next to the Miller Lite Bullpen Sports Bar," Ramirez apparently told Williams.
 
"All Manny needs is a crewcut, not a salon," said Williams in a press conference.
 
After hearing Williams, a subdued Ramirez said, "If I don't get my dreads done at Chez Manny I may not be able to hustle out ground balls."
 
Chez Manny's flagship salon opened in Venice, CA 18 months ago, before Ramirez started getting busted and injured. Featuring - no surprise - chemical dread perming at - big surprise - $500 and up, the salon never found an audience and a planned expansion stalled at three.
 
With or without salon, the White Sox greeted Ramirez with restraint and relief.
 
"I don't care," said manager Ozzie Guillen
 
"It's hard being the biggest jerk on a team," added catcher A.J. Pierzynski.
