As many of you might have noticed at Homecoming, Ted has gone blond.
I asked Ted the genesis of this new do, and he wrote me the following description:
Nebraska Phi Beta Lambda does a Husker Raffle every year which I provide all of the prizes for annually. Each year, as a little incentive, I usually offer some type of challenge for them. Three years ago, they finally raised enough to have my mustache shaved. This year, if $1500 was raised statewide, I said I would go blond.
If they raised $1,750, I said I would do a blue mohawk. Well, they raised $1,824 so you have the results. Obviously, my hair was not long enough to do a true mohawk so we compromised with the blue mini-mohawk which turned purple and black. But, you have the pictures to see it was blue at one point.
Well, I think that he just wants to have fun.
Peggy Groff supplied me with a series of photographs from which I made a film posted on You Tube and supplied here for your amusement.
Oh, enjoy the song.
