Urban Meyer's wife Shelly's hair catches on fire on her birthday

Friday December 12th, 2014

Urban Meyer's family gathered together to celebrate his wife's 50th birthday on Thursday while the coach was attending the College Football Awards show, and things took a bad turn when the birthday cake showed up.

Shelly Meyer went to blow out the candles but her hair slipped into their path and caught on fire. Luckily she's ok, and she seems to be taking the embarrassing moment pretty well as she posted about it on Twitter.

It is probably impossible for the Meyers to be anything but happy these days given that Ohio State grabbed a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff. Shelly just might be sporting a slightly different hairdo come game day.
