BREAKING: GENE KEADY HAD COMBOVER EXTENSIONS
CLICK THIS LINK. CLICK IT NOW. GREGG DOYEL VENTURES DOWN THE ADVENTURE THAT WAS GENE KEADY'S COMBOVER.
Gene Keady spent $2,400 PER
WEEK MONTH to keep his combover in tip top shape.
Gene Keady was self-conscious about being bald on national television.
The official color of Gene Keady's hair dye was "black", not "eternal darkness" as I had previously thought.
Gene Keady's wife, Kathleen, surprise-shaved the combover to death.
Bobby Knight was clearly intimidated by the power radiating from Gene Keady's combover.
Kathleen Keady thought Gene Keady's combover was "ugly", "horrible", "weird-looking", and "like Halloween or something."
Gene and Kathleen Keady are most assuredly the cutest old couple of all time.
Seriously, click that link. I didn't give it all away. The combover could have killed Coach.
I have so many questions. Was a "Hair Maintenance" clause written into his contract? Did he ever insure his combover, a la Troy Polamalu? Did he have a product of choice to keep every "hair" in place? Why hasn't Purdue replaced the Racing P and the train logo with Gene's combover at half court? Can we somehow have the combover preserved in the bowels of Mackey? Can the team rub their hands through it's greasy, thick swaths for good luck before games?
SO MANY FEELINGS.
Additional thought: Gregg Doyel has been a beyond-fantastic addition at the Star. Keep up the great work, sir.
Also, on a slightly more serious note, I'm so glad Coach Keady seems healthy and loving life. I hope he knows he's still every Purdue fan's hero. Jay "Trillas" Bilas pretty much sums it up:
Great article on Gene Keady & combover: http://t.co/wmhoVe5ViY Don't care about his coif, Keady's awesome. I'd walk through fire for him.
