Marty shaves head if Reds streak continues?

HOF Reds radio broadcaster Marty Brennaman made a deal to shave his head bald if the Reds can extend their winning streak to 10. Marty has always had a full head of hair and if the Reds have anything to say about it, he will have to say goodbye to his luscious white dew for one of a basic training private.

Marty and Joe Nuxhall, arguably the greatest commentator duo the sport has ever seen. Joe Nuxhall passed away in 2007 and is missed dearly throughout Cincinnati. The ol' left hander is a common name in every household in Reds country.      
Marty Brennaman currently works with pitcher Jeff Brantley on 700 WLW, covering each Reds game. Jeff Brantley is better known as the "Cowboy".

The above picture is of Marty and Joe in the radio booth. Marty is know for the famous phrase "and this one belongs to the Reds", in which he recites after each Reds win. Nuxhall was known for saying "and the ol' left hander is rounding third and heading for home."
