I went ahead and checked every respected bookmaker, and not one had a prop bet on the board regarding the sudden reappearance of this long-forgotten hair trend. The odds against the style raising like a phoenix from the bleached ashes were simply too high.
Clearly overcome by the weight of bringing frosty back to relevance, Neymar broke down during the national anthem.
Hang in there, buddy. It will grow out.
