FRO NEWS | When Big Hair Ruled the ABA

Will Ferrell's PR machine is hard at work promoting his new film, "Semi-Pro". Film is set back in the 70s in the American Basketball Association, and it seems nearly everyone sports a fro. Check out the bygone days of the ABA and BIG FROS by following the Cleveland Plain Dealer's recommended link:

Darnell Hillman tops them all, check out Artis Gilmore and the rest of the big fros and long hairs using the arrow next to the players name.

Presidents Day | Videos

Postcard VOTE BALD

I am on the campaign trail again.

On March 17, St. Patrick's day, I am shaving my head to benefit the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This year I am honoring Alex and Michael. I am also honoring the parents of cancer kids and the careworkers (nurses and doctors) on the front lines.

The whole idea of kids having cancer is a tough pill to swallow. So the folks at St B's shave their heads to show support for the kids. It gets a little off track from talking specifically about cancer--but the resulting funds raised have been impressive. So I stick with the fun stuff, build awareness.

You can help me out. Share my videos with your friends, and make a campaign donation. All of your money goes direct to St. B's. All of my promotions are funded at my expense (and the many volunteers who appear in my videos).

Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow!

According to legend, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he doesn’t see his shadow, there’ll be an early spring.

Regardless, in six more weeks, I’m shaving my head bald.

Happy Groundhogs Day!

I’m going bald! Again!

On March 17th, I’m shaving my head for St. Baldrick’s. But not just any head, I’m shaving “the FRO.” Last year’s shaving of the ‘fro raised $6,500 for St. Baldrick’s. In Cleveland we raised over $220,000 and worldwide the organization surpassed $12.8 million.

You may recall the mission of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, “Shaving the way to conquer kid’s cancer”. I’m helping raise awareness and funds to cure kid’s cancer by supporting cancer research and fellowships.

I’m raising awareness and asking for donations with many of the same antics as last year: bumper stickers, buttons, colorful brochures, and zany videos.

This year’s theme is based on the 2008 presidential election. I’ll be churning out slogans, propaganda, and letters—like this one—asking for a campaign donation. Last year a lot of friends contributed $10 so that I would cut my hair for St Bs. Here is where I stand with a $10 haircut against the other hopefuls:

$400 John Edwards
$50 Mitt Romney
$20 Ron Paul
$20 John McCain
$15 Mike Huckabee

$10 FRO
$4 Dennis Kucinich

Perhaps you could help me move up the list! Can I count on your support for this year’s campaign too?

Go Bald! Vote Fro!
