Steve Asmussen's hair do

I was not a fan of Steve's do, but now I am. Old Bones posted this on Facebook -


Steve Asmussen - reason for the long locks:

In the fall of 2015, Julie Asmussen, Steve’s wife and mother of their three sons, was diagnosed with neck and throat cancer. Six months later, after a series of aggressive treatments, she scanned clean. About the same time, Asmussen was elected to the Hall of Fame.

“Knock on wood, she had a recent check and she’s 100 percent free, so we don’t have to go back for about three months,” Asmussen said.

And he is still not cutting his flowing Andrea Bocelli hair.

“It was kind of a pact we had, a symbol of her getting through it and her hair coming back,” Asmussen said. “Somebody was giving me a hard time. I said if you can make your wife happy by simply not cutting your hair, don’t you think you should?”

I'm an old hippie, so I kind of like his long hair.
Maybe the folks who are griping about his long locks are just jealous, 'cause they don't have enough hair to ever sport that 'do. :P :lol:

I’m not a fan of men who’s hair looks better than mine haha.

But that is a nifty cool story I didn’t know about.

And I still think that. I understand, applaud, and support the reason why he grew his hair, but I still think he's handsomer in his close cropped do. I can picture him in a 3 piece white suit, a black shoe string tie, a white hat with a black band slightly tipped and barely covering his eye, an ultra thin cigarillo held between his teeth, a whiff of smoke circling, a well trimmed mustache. and him holding the winning hand in a riverboat gambling salon - akin to Clark Gable.

Cool story. Hope Julie A. remains cancer-free. Not his biggest fan by a long shot but he seems very family-oriented.

I still remember that too and I still think this is the perfect description on how he looked. I don't know why but somehow the "riverboat gambler" stuck in my memory. hahaha
