Maurice Harris, great hands, great hair

Maurice Harris continues to shine, taking his hard work from the spring and training camps to the field.  At 6-foot-3, he joins a cast of other tall suitors fighting for a place on the 53 man roster.  His hands along with hand eye coordination are certainly pushing him to the top of the list.

Harris has always had this talent according to his first cousin, Keenan Allen, two time Pro Bowl receiver for the LA Chargers.  “He has unbelievable hands,” said Allen, who is entering his seventh season with the Chargers. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen him drop a pass. Just his ability to track the ball, his hand-eye coordination… If you throw it up, he’s going to get it.”

One memory still sticks out to Allen: Years ago at an Alabama football camp, which attracted some of the best high school players in the nation, Harris slipped coming out of his break on curl route, got his head up just in time to see the ball coming, and plucked it out of the air with one hand as he lay on the ground.

Harris certainly has Patriots fans excited.  There's only one Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman.  I'm not saying Harris is on that level, but he, along with several other receivers are 6-fot-3.  I can't remember the Patriots having this many receivers over 6 foot tall, seriously.  One, two maybe in the last ten years, excluding Gronkowski, the man was of mythic proportions.  I also love the hair.  I am one of the few and proud dudes over 40 who still has a glossy mane of beautiful locks, all my own.  I say if you can grow it, show it.  Be proud of that cabbage your mama blessed you with.  It's the one thing that is taboo with my friends, you can make fun of his wife for being annoying, his kid for being an idiot, maybe his sister for being a tad too friendly with the fellas.  There are so many good one liners I have stored in the old breadbox about losing hair, but I simply cannot bring myself to hammer a gross, bald guy when his face is so ugly, his hair is running away, boom, that's just a taste.
