Noah Syndergaard got his hair cut for a TV cameo
Mets flamethrower and Avenger look-alike Noah "Thor" Syndergaard is notable around baseball for two reasons: His fastball and his hair. The young righty routinely touches triple digits with his heater, and his flowing blond locks make him a recognizable presence whenever he's on the mound.
But Wednesday afternoon, Thor tweeted out an ominous picture of himself in what looked to be a GASP barber's chair.
Cut your hair they say.....it worked for Jake they say.....you’ll pitch better they say.......lots of sheep in Ireland 🐑 pic.twitter.com/Ge1C1XAz4j— Noah Syndergaard (@Noahsyndergaard) October 3, 2018
Sure, snipping off the locks worked for his rotation mate and National League Cy Young front runner
Well, breathe easy Mets fans and fans of justice, it looks like it was only a slight trim.
Hair: Party on top, business on the sides #Vikings style. On the set of HISTORY’s drama “Vikings” filming an episode for season six. Catch the midseason 5 premiere on Nov. 28 on HISTORY. Look out for “Thorbjorn”-he’s a Badass @HistoryVikings pic.twitter.com/1Q5EXTe64y— Noah Syndergaard (@Noahsyndergaard) October 3, 2018
The coolest part is that Syndergaard's trip to the barber was part of a guest appearance he's making on an episode of the History Channel show, "Vikings." This isn't the first time the long-locked baseballing mountain will grace the small screen: Syndergaard made a brief cameo on season seven of Game of Thrones.
I guess when you look as imposing as Syndergaard, you're a natural fit for television shows that include things like Vikings and spear-throwing soldiers.
