In a kind of reverse-Samson flourish, Columbus Crew striker Steven Lenhart cut off his mop of blond curls (which from certain angles, made him resemble the kid from Bad Santa) about a month ago and is now starting to show great goal-scoring powers.
Last Saturday, he banged in an 88th minute header in Columbus’s 3-1 loss to Chivas USA, and last night, he scored both goals in the Crew’s 2-1 road win over Philadelphia.
Three goals in two games for Lenhart, an 11-4-4 record and a ten point lead atop the East standings for Columbus?
We may never see those curls again.
