The bond between gingers is an unbreakable, everlasting bond that transcends space and time, so it comes as no surprise that when middle schooler Patrick Gonzalez wanted to show off his love for his hometown San Antonio Spurs, he chose to honor the player he admires most—fellow ginger Matt Bonner, aka the Red Rocket.
The San Antonio superfan had the image of the Spurs center preparing to launch a 3-pointer shaved into the back of his head, an act that while noble and unique may land him in trouble with school officials because Gonzalez’s “Bonner Cut” has been deemed a distraction. Officials for Judson I.S.D. have said on record that if Gonzalez comes to school on Thursday with his awesome haircut in tact he may be in line for an in-school suspension.
That haircut is distracting though…and by distracting I mean totally boss. Look, it’s on the back of his head, so the only people that are going to see it are those lucky kids seated behind Gonzalez, and answer me this—when given the option of learning fractions or Shakespeare or something educational versus gazing longingly at a hair masterpiece of Spurs forward Matt Bonner, which option do you think most middle school kids would choose?

Gonzalez (Patrick’s mother) says she came to the front office to ask permission. School leaders say she mentioned the haircut, but they never gave her the OK. “There was no permission that was given if the parent thought that then it was a miscommunication,” said Aubrey Chancellor, Judson I.S.D. District officials say the haircut is a distraction. “Whether it’s the spurs or whether it’s the cowboys anything people obviously support, it doesn’t matter.”
Give ‘em hell Aubrey Chancellor! This blatant disregard for the rules regarding distracting haircuts that support professional teams currently in the playoffs must come to an end! Or, and hear me out school officials at Judson I.S.D., maybe, just maybe you could let the kid’s haircut slide because the Spurs are rolling in the NBA playoffs and really, how offensive or distracting could a Matt Bonner haircut be?
About as offensive or distracting as Matt Bonner in real life, and that ain’t squat.
