INDIANAPOLIS – Megan Tim remembers the trend that began in 2016, when her eldest son was a second-grader at Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas.
Drun, now one of the country’s most formidable officials, Գ Gonzaga’s undefeated striker after three games in the NCAA Men’s Tournament, would take inspiration from his next look, burn his razor, spend the next 5-10 minutes in front of the living room mirror, cutting his hair – a deliberate և thorough process that reflects the way the Team’s lower block moves.
Megan often got the first glance at the final product. Sometimes Drew turned his facial hair into a traditional mustache. Other times when the carriage was being shaped. The monkey’s tail was more rare. The thick mustache, which started on one side of the lip, passed to the other, twisted under the chin, rose to the jaw line, and ended in a lateral burn.
The styles were varied, but the goal usually remained the same. If it weren’t for her mother’s annoying reaction, it wouldn’t have been so good.
“He started having fun with it, thinking it was funny, he would tell me he went to school like that, he never went to another,” Megan said. “It simply came to our notice then. Before that, he would shave it. “
Some things have changed since then. These days, Tim does not live under his parents’ roof, Megan can no longer complain about her son shaving before class, even if he pushes to persuade Drew to get rid of his latest look, tens of thousands of college basketball. Fans who have accepted Gonzaga’s dominant second year at the NCAA are likely to back off.
Sometimes just throwing an orchestra is easier than standing in its way.
“He decided that the train left the station,” said Megan. “It will happen all the time.”
“It’s kind of fun. Drew is such a stupid kid: he loves funny little weird things. “I’m not surprised he found anything, but I wouldn’t think it would be the hair on his face.”
Those who have followed the NCAA Tournament probably recognized Timme for one of two things. A flawless footwork that denies his 6-foot -10.235-pound range նրան allows him to surpass the more athletic seniors, or Fu Manchu, who ignited the internet to become the biggest viral sensation of this year’s tournament, even surpassing the revered Loyola Chicago priest Jean.
“It certainly went on in his life, that’s for sure,” said Father Matt Tim. “Drew will always be Drew և will do his job. “He likes to have fun there, obviously what he was doing, but I do not even think he thought it would be something on the level it is now, but it is quite wonderful.”
Earlier this year, Tim debuted a scaled-down version of Drew Manchu or Fu Man Drew, shaving his facial hair into a mustache. He then made headlines and suggested that Timme’s lead the way to the NCAA Tournament in Indianapolis. The attacker brushes his knife with two index fingers, then points to the sky when he finishes the performance.
The mustache was also echoed on social media by his mother, who posted a photo of shaving cream last December with the caption “Hey Santa, I’ve been very good this year.” I have a request at the last minute. “
The finger answer to the mustache? “I do not believe he pulled it off.”
You see, lush facial hair has never been a genetic gift to the Timm family. Now this is a gift Timmes has given to the college basketball world.
“In his freshman years, he had a shaved head, like a buzz, with no facial hair,” said Matt. “Then he extended his bangs and started growing a full beard.”
Then Matt said sarcastically. “I could not grow a beard until I was 28.”
When Timé paid an official visit to Gonzaga as a four-year high school startup, he found himself with a light layer of peach blossom covering both sides of his face, chin and neck. Like his game, the facial hair has become stronger, և Tim decided to try again before the opening of the GU tournament against Norfolk.
“I do not think he knows he is going to do it until it really happens, because I know that this time, even with Drew Manchu, he even surprised his team-mates before the first game against Norfolk.” said Matt. “He had a full beard when he was shot, then he suddenly came back for the game. He does it for shocking value, to have fun with it. ”
After Gonzaga’s Sweet 16 win over Creighton. In a game in which Timme scored 22 points, bringing his three-game tournament to 62, a Texas sophomore answered CBS’s post-match question about his unique appearance by answering: “It’s something he can do.” really accustomed to. I can’t even control it, so it’s just something we have to go with.
“My teammates like it – all that, so it ‘s great, I’m just glad everyone’ s having fun with it. That was the whole point of bringing a comedy scene here. ”
The team could not control the hold, but the opponents had the same difficulty in controlling the team during the last two weeks in Indianapolis, conceding 62 points, 25 shots and 13 assists to the cunning big man. His next test against USC և Pac-12 Player of the Year Evan Mobley at Elite Eight on Tuesday should be his biggest yet.
“Drew is the dog with all the facial hair, giggles and celebrations aside,” said teammate Corey Kispert. “Drew can play with anyone, beat anyone. He showed it with the whole show of the whole tournament. “
Team play և Facial hair has caused a stir in almost everyone. Well, except for the women who gave birth, all but everyone, even though he accepted ընդունել appreciated the trend for what it’s worth.
“I like a clean shave, a full beard. They are my favorites. “Beyond that, the goat will be fine,” said Megan. “But as for crazy things, I can not say that I have a lover. They all have one category. This dirty wheel vent was NOT my favorite. It’s really dense and strong, so it’s definitely not on my favorites list. “
When Dvayan Wade interviewed the Team in a recent video posted on NCAA.com, the NBA All-Star reported 13 times to the young Gonzaga star: “Tell your mom you have to keep the status quo. Tell D-Wade that the stache remains. ”
“I will say that when I saw him with Dvayan Wade, he threw it at me,” Megan said. “I’m like, ‘Oh my, Dvayan Wade is talking to my baby.'”
On Sunday, Mexican son Onson, the coach of Timas High School և ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ընտանիքի ավ ավ ներկայաց ներկայաց ներկայաց ներկայաց ներկայաց:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
“Drew always had a crazy game of facial hair, even in high school,” said John Onson. “Drew is a unique child, so he has fun with it. “You never knew what the game was about.”
Members of ESPN College’s GameDay show, including Ay Bilas, Seth Greenberg, Rese Dice, Lafonso Ellis, copied the Team’s appearance during an interview with Gonzaga, and CBS analysts did the same during Sunday’s pre-election show.
Like the Timme’s Bulldogs, status in the NCAA remains a force ուժ it’s the perfect expression for Gonzaga’s team, which was able to play freely despite the strong pressure to be the main seed of the event – և continues to grow in each with: to win
“Drew has always been Drew, that’s what we like to say,” Megan said. “He’s going to be Drew. He thinks he’s going to be Drew, so this is his chance to ease its intensity and pressure to make sure it’s still a game, still fun, fun.”
The team could eventually break away from Stach, but he would like to break the net at Lucas Oil Stadium first. In addition, the look is easier for Megan to digest every time Gonzaga wins with her son in the “Drew Manchu” movement. Another seven days can not hurt.
“I will say this. “I like it more when he wins, when he plays really well, it definitely makes the ax grow on me,” said Megan.
