The Rays, not surprisingly, are off to a slow start in the Hot Stove. What do we do when things are slow? We of course turn to YouTube. As a wise man once said, if you can’t find anything interesting on YouTube, you just aren’t trying.

Here is a somewhat mesmerizing video of several Rays getting mohawks prior to game 5 of the World Series. The players include Carl Crawford, Aki Iwamura, Willy Aybar and Grant Balfour. The barber in question is apparently a “barber for the baseball stars”. He even has his own website!

A couple of notes…

  • Japanese for Mohawk is apparently “Mo-hee-can”, which we guess makes sense.
  • Aki’s English has gotten much better than we realized.
  • Balfour will never win an Academy Award.
  • If Balfour ever tries to high-five Tiger Woods, the universe might implode.

    Was Aki saying "Mo-Hee-Can" or whatever..... or was he speaking in Spanish and saying "Maricon" and calling MoHawks gay?

    Judge for yourself.
