Ginger Pro-Phile: Shaun White

Ginger Pro-Phile: Shaun White
Shaun White

Shaun White is a really bad actor. I learned this by watching some movie I can't even remember the name of. I think Justin Timberlake was in it [Edit: It's Friends with Benefits].

But, Shaun White is a really good snowboarder. I strongly believe his gingerness drove his love of extreme sports. Extreme hair = extreme desires ... right? I mean, like 50 Shades of Grey. Most redheads are just like, "What? That's tame," when everybody else is all, "Whoa this is extreme but I like it." Redheads would write something much crazier.

Anywhozizzle, did you know he's half-Italian? I don't know any redheaded half-Italians; do you? I certainly like Italians and would like to have a half-Italian kid, if you know what I mean.

He also used to be a skiier, which makes me not hate him for being a snowboarder. Although, now he's a traitor.

But, the best part of Shaun White is that I have the exact same hair as him, except he used his to make him a well-known celebrity. His nickname even used to be "The Flying Tomato".

I don't know about you but that wouldn't "fly" with me.

    The Ginger Phile has had the unfortunate disposition of being a ginger since birth. She has tried various medications to cure her gingervitis, including therapies such as tantrum-throwing. Her efforts have been to no avail. Instead, she is trying to write it out, via this blog. Unfortunately, she doesn't think it will bear a soul for her. The Ginger Phile is from the exotic land of Wisconsin, where she had daily inner turmoil over whether she was a ginger or a daywalker. So far, three of three votes say daywalker. She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.

      The stereotype for redhead guys is much different. Nerdy, weak, moody, argumentative. I hate it. I am it.
