Is Nelson Valdez about to shave his glorious hair?

Maybe it’s a sacrifice to the soccer gods.

Nelson Valdez may be struggling to score, but we’ve always been able to rely on him for two things: a tireless work ethic and his glorious mane. It’s unclear if he’s being entirely serious (although we’ll probably find out soon enough), but it looks like he may be losing one of those things.

As sad as the prospect of Valdez shaving his head may be, it’s entirely possible he simply sees this as a sacrifice to the soccer gods. If this is what it takes for him to start putting the ball in the back of the net, it’s a price we should all be happy to pay.
