NY Politician Accepts Mohawk Challenge ... Kinda

10/28/2009 7:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It took less than an hour -- but a NY politician is totally stepping up to the plate to accept the Yankees-Phillies mohawk challenge issued by Pennsylvania congressman Robert Brady ... but in case you haven't noticed, there's just one small problem...



Congressman John Hall
(D-NY19) wants a piece of the head-shaving action ... but he seems to be lacking the proper equipment for a proper mohawk. Instead, he wants to raise the stakes. Here's John's statement:

"Brady must not be that confident. Just a mohawk? I'll see his mohawk and raise him a whole head. I'll shave all my hair if the Phillies win – which we all know isn't happening."

Some people in the TMZ newsroom believe Hall has more at stake -- due to the fact that balding people usually cherish the few follicles they have left. Others believe Brady -- and his big grey mane -- have more to lose.

We're calling Brady right now to see if it's game on!

As the former front man of the group "Orleans," who sang such hits as "Dance with Me" and "Let There Be Music," Congressman John Hall doesn't NEED hair because he has a whole lot more JIVE than Brady!

In stead of shaving what little hair he has he should be made to wear a hideous toupee...

John Hall used to have lots of long hair back in the day when he wrote and performed most of the hit songs with "Orleans". He's a great state representative! Go John!

horo    

I think they should stick with the mohawk. The bald guy would have a vertical strip on the back of his head. Equally has humiliating. Bald? Not a loss at all.
