Juventus played Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Round of 16 Champions League tie on Tuesday, and grinded out a 2-2 draw in a match that we could safely call "cracker jack." Juve’s crown jewel, the ordinarily super-Vine-able Paul Pogba spent most of the game getting harassed out of possession and got made a fool of by emergency Bayern centerback Joshua Kimmich, but let’s not talk about those things.
Let’s talk about Pogba’s hair instead.
Actually let’s talk about how Pogba showed up to the game first. This is a man who just signed a $40-plus million deal with adidas, four years after getting shipped out of Old Trafford for the startlingly low price of "free." Look at those sunglasses inside and the Louis Vuitton calfskin dopp kit. This picture looks like "Hate Me Now" sounds.
Along with being able to do things with his feet that’ll flatly never be possible for you or me or most other people we know, Pogba’s known for being adventurous with his hair. We’ve had Poke-balls, animal prints, emojis, and now we have the Bat-Signal.
There’s any number of reasons as to why he chose to go with this look on Tuesday, but I’m going to choose to believe that Pogba is siding with Team Batman for the upcoming "Batman Vs. Superman" movie. Because Superman is lame and boring and cookie-cutter, and Batman is awesome and brooding and distant.
Batman forever. Not the movie "Batman Forever," though. Because that was kind of awful.
