Kevin Millar made a little wager on the NBA Finals. (Don’t worry, the b-ball bet wasn’t anything approaching Pete Rose-levels.) And by the looks of it, he took the Lakers.
That would explain why the Orioles’ first baseman showed up to the plate last night in a new blonde hairdo, accompanied by the sweet melodies of “Ice, Ice Baby”.
BROMOBLOG breaks it down that Millar lost his NBA bet to former Red Sox teammate Jason Varitek. As a result, Kevin came up against the Houston Astros with the new hair and a new at-bat song courtesy of Vanilla Ice. Video proof of his plate appearance is after the jump.
Word to your mother.
But maybe Kevin should stay with the new ‘do and new tune. With the new look, Millar knocked in the game-winning run with an RBI single in the 10th.
If these end-game heroics keep up (along with Miller’s batting average), expect Robby Van Winkle’s career to re-blossom in Baltimore.
