Hair Today and Gone Tomorrow
Louisville, KY-Louisville Fire owner Will Wolford and Lexington Horsemen owner Lennie House have a lot riding on the 'War on 64' game Saturday night. No, not the records of the two teams, but the bet that has some hair raising excitement. The two have made a bet that the winning owner will shave the loser's head directly following the end of the fourth quarter on Brown-Forman Field in Freedom Hall.
"It's time to put it all on the line for this rivalry and Will, I mean every hair on your head. Winning owner gets to shave losing team's owner's head. Let's get it on!" said Lennie House.
This is the first meeting between the teams and is sure to be a rivalry in the making, especially after this bet. The teams represent the two largest cities in Kentucky and have much to prove. Not only do the Fire players and coaches want a victory on Saturday, owner Will Wolford would like nothing more than to keep his hair and shave Lennie House's head in front of all the Louisville Fire fans.
"Mr. House better be ready because I'm coming with the clippers and my wife sure doesn't want me to lose any more hair," states Wolford.
The Louisville Fire (2-2) and Lexington Horsemen (3-1) will meet on Saturday April 26, 2008 at 7:00 PM in Freedom Hall, for the first of three games.
