Good hair day

June 3, 2007

I was extremely proud to be watching the Iranian National Soccer Team play against Mexico on Saturday. Even though the depleted Iranian team was no match for Mexico’s mediocrity, but what made me most proud were the awesome, perky, lavish and bouncy hairdos of the Iranian players. We have to admit that our national team had a good hair day.

I especially enjoyed Iranian footballers’ fake tumbles and Hollywood-style dives while maintaining a perfect hair posture. The most delightful part of the match was watching the National players master the art of fixing hairdos immediately after a header or avoiding contact all together for the fear of sending a few strings of long hair from one side to the other.

True that our B team was a few steps behind Mexico’s C team, but we have to hand it to our players for recognizing the fact that it’s not important how you play the game so long as your hair makes you look like top European strikers.
