FTW- If McConaughey resembles West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen in the upcoming movie, there’s a good reason for that…
Via the Austin American-Statesman:
He pauses. “But you know where it really came from? I haven’t told anyone else this. I went to the hair lady, said, ‘It’s this guy’s hair,’ and handed her a picture of Dana Holgorsen,” McConaughey said, laughing uproariously.
As someone who is follically challenged, I can't help but think this goes against some kind of code. In most situations I would get a kick out of a high profile, die-hard fan of one team taking unnecessary pot shots at the head coach of a conference foe that's had their number as of late, but I don't think this is one of those situations. At the risk of sounding like a negligent mother that let her kid get fat and then tried to sue the school when he had to endure some lighthearted ribbing, I must say that seeing someone who hit the genetic lottery pick on a man that fights day in and day out to keep his hairline from fleeing faster than an unhappy housewife that happened to catch the wandering eye of Matthew McConaughey feels like bullying. Call me overly sympathetic if you so choose, but if one exquisite being poking fun of a mere mortal for his lack of biological fortune isn't a prime example of a person exercising their DNA-given superiority for evil then I don't know what is.
Don't get me here. I'm not so biased that I can't admit that "The Dana Holgorsen" is literally thee perfect description for the recession that is now taking place a top McConaughey's head, but that doesn't mean he has to go around spreading that news. Especially since that picture above really pours the thinning on thick in comparison to that of West Virginia's head football coach...
