Gov. Rod Blagojevich very passionate about his comb, ball security

blagohair.jpegEmbattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich's hair is an unavoidable topic. It's so brazen, unique and well .. unique.

Hair like that does not happen easily. It requires the delicate care of a comb. A comb so important that it has taken on the importance of top secret bomb codes.

"Mr. Blagojevich, 52, rarely turns up for work at his official state office in Chicago, former employees say, is unapologetically late to almost everything, and can treat employees with disdain, cursing and erupting in fury for failings as mundane as neglecting to have at hand at all times his preferred black Paul Mitchell hairbrush. He calls the brush "the football," an allusion to the "nuclear football," or the bomb codes never to be out of reach of a president.
We here at Sports Pros(e) aren't lucky enough to have hair, so we don't understand Blagojevich's Jessie Katsopolis-like obsession. We're curious if you guys have any beauty product that is treated with similar reverence.
