Josh Donaldson shows off his new Vikings-inspired hair

Wednesday December 2nd, 2015

How can Josh Donaldson top his 2015 AL MVP campaign next season? By doing it all again, but this time with a crazy braided hairstyle inspired by the television series Vikings.

Donaldson told Sports Illustrated’s Kenneth Ducey before the award was announced that he planned to rock the intricate look in 2016, and now the Blue Jays third baseman has made good on his promise, showing off the new ’do on Twitter.

At least one of his former teammates is not impressed, with LaTroy Hawkins poking fun at the look.

As long as he continues to hit at the MVP pace he established last season, Donaldson will make his teammates and fans happy with his hair however it looks.
