Another Scary Hair Day

If I didn't scare you with the "soccer mullet," then maybe the photos accompanying this post will do the trick. The PG's Cori Shropshire explains:
A tradition began when Promethean LifeSciences Chief Operating Officer Christian Manders morphed from driven biotech executive into wig-wearing 1970s superstar. He and a group of buddies recently returned from two weeks in Germany where they participated in the revelry of the World Cup dressed as American legends, including Mr. Manders as motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel.

The outfits piqued the attention of photographers, bloggers, reporters and fans and earned Mr. Manders mentions in and the blog of Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter Charles F. Gardner. Mr. Gardner, who was covering the event, wrote what could become Mr. Manders' epitaph: "I'm Evel Knievel, first time at the World Cup, longtime adventure seeker."
Cori's Post-Gazette blurb did not include photos. I'm happy to remedy that oversight. To the right, Evel K. and Captain America let some Munich police in on the joke.
