Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

We've had our first cut of the preseason and it is none other than rookie defender A.J. DeLaGarza. But it's not what you think.

The second round draft pick out of Maryland arrived at camp looking like this...
But after a week's worth of training, the Bryans Road, Md. native decided to chop the long locks in favor of a much shorter and cleaner look.
What do you think? Right move for the rookie or should he have kept his trademark tresses?

We'll talk with him tomorrow to see what led to the big change and ask how he found a good barber after just a few days in Southern California.

Not that the hair-cut is bad; actually, it turned out good. But, I'm going to miss the trade-mark curly-ponytail of his. Oh well, it's only hair... New team, New city, New club... New hair style... Cool.

He looks waaaaaaaay better! He looks so much younger and cuter!

Bad move. He is in Hollywood now and should have kept his unique look.

for his sake I hope he doesn't regret cutting his long hair...

at least the striker will have more difficulty to grab him by his hair...

I preferred the long locks...now he just looks like everyone else...But it is a nice haircut. Oh well, it is his soccer abilities that I really care about. ;-)

Way to go A.J. Hair looks good I am a fan of the Military Cut anyway. Tell Port Tobacco M.V. Hello from us. Great job and congratulations on your success and future.

AJ, its Kristal H... I think your cut looks great. ITS ONLY HAIRRRRR!!!!! OMGOSH! You have no idea how much it sucks trying to maintain curly long hair. You try running and sweating with long thick curly hair... frankly you get tired of trying to fool with it and the knots. This is much easier to maintain and its alot cooler...(temperature wise). It also opened up his face. HATE ON IT! ITS FLY!
