Josh Donaldson rocks new Viking-inspired hairstyle that sort of looks like a french braid
Blue Jays third baseman debuts his hairstyle for next season
The Bringer of Rain is now also a bringer of braid.
Josh Donaldson debuted his striking new hairstyle on Twitter Tuesday night.
The Blue Jays third-baseman was a trendsetter this year, with many fans trying to emulate his hybrid mohawk cut and samurai tail hairstyle — but now the American League MVP is switching things up ahead of next season.
Donaldson told Sports Illustrated that the new look was inspired by the hair of the Viking warrior character Ragnar Lothbrok on the Canadian-Irish drama Vikings.
The tweet that the third baseman put out unveiling the braided look has inspired a lot of reaction online, here are a couple of replies to Donaldson's tweet — including ones from his teammates LaTroy Hawkins and Steven Tolleson.
