Von Hayes Is Concerned, Unibrowed

Survey this daguerreotype of Von Hayes, and you may be tempted to focus solely on the tenuous unibrow that introduces him to the world as a cocksman of distinction. But peer more deeply, and you’ll see a countenance riddled with mounting horror …

What is it just off-stage that troubles him so? A baleful incubus plucked from a Goya painting? The dark ways of Ron Hassey? The approaching hoof-beats of the decisive yet still fraught Cold War endgame?

Afflict Von Hayes no more, you sickening menace!

  1. Von Hayes is the Buster Keaton of baseball.

    My guesses: Hayes has either just finished watching On Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, or he is watching Joe Charboneau and reflecting on the fleeting nature of success.

  2. He looks like Tony Danza in ‘Teach’ right after he realizes that he might be a bad teacher, but right before he starts to cry like a small child.

    One batting glove is red, the other is blue. Clearly Von Hayes is concerned with where he put their complements.

    Eyebrows, porn stache, zipper front jersey, powder blue and maroon … cue the music.

    When they make a movie about the glorious life of Von Hayes, Christian Bale should get the lead role.
