Bob Brady & Bald Colleague Bet Shaved Head On Phillies

There have been all sorts of political bets this week on the outcome of the Phillies-Yankees World Series but U.S. Rep. Bob Brady's ranks as the strangest.  Brady's staff just called PhillyClout to let us know that he has offered to shave his head of thick hair in the unlikely event of a Yankees victory.  TMZ.com broke the news after catching up with Brady with a video camera in Washington D.C.  Brady's fall-back bet was to offer up a Mohawk hair-do.

"Nobody would shave their heads with me," Brady said of New York's congressional delegation. "None of them New York people had any guts."

Well U.S. Rep. John Hall, a New York Democrat, apparently found the nerve.  TMZ.com reports that Hall has agreed to shave his head if the Yankees can't prevent the Phillies from repeating as World Series champs.  Wow.  Way to go, Congressman.  Hall, by the way, is bald.
