"I'm getting rid of the PONY TAIL!!! C'mon all you Perth Wildcats Fans....and basketball fans in general. Get behind me! For those of you who have told me to "get a hair cut" put your money where your mouth is! I'm taking part in the Leukaemia Foundation's World's Greatest Shave 2010. Please sponsor me and donate what you can, every dollar makes a difference. The funds we raise will help the Leukaemia Foundation to provide practical care and support to patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders." -- Luke Schenscher
Since I can't afford to donate, I'm hoping to get the word out to more people by getting Schenscher's story out to my meager readership and providing this link to donate to the foundation.
I've never done a great job of hiding my love for Luke Schenscher (see here and here), who hasn't played in the D-League since 2007, but this is the most worthy reason of mentioning him I've ever had.
Also, as an update on the former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket/ Chicago Bull/ Portland Trailblazer/Fort Worth Flyer, he's currently playing for the Perth Wildcats over in his native Australia and averaging 10.7 points and 6.7 boards in 23 minutes per game. Fun fact: He's also attempted six 3-pointers. Not so fun fact: He's only made one of them.
