Patriotic Hair Prank

Lauren Salapatek | July 10, 2011 | 9:46 PM

Monday night Long-track speedskater Ryan Bedford and older teammate Chad Hedrick devised a plan of action: to shave and dye each other’s hair so both of their hair styles would resemble American flags.

“We were joking around last night and he said: ‘Let’s do something crazy,’” said Bedford.

Bedford was the guinea pig and went first. Right after Bedford’s outcome, Hedrick backed out after seeing the bizarre results of Bedford’s follicle surgery.

“Chad is one of the senior guys on the team, so he can get away with it,” said Bedford. “He came up with the idea of the shave. We weren’t really thinking that it would end up like this. I’m the one who gets to look weird.”

The 23-year-old Bedford, from Holland, Michigan finished 12th in the 10,000 meter event on Tuesday.
