The deal was made at the first game of the season. Sean said that if every single member of the team scored in one game that they (Erik and Sean ~ the coaches) would color their hair purple. It is kind of ironic that Sean made the deal when you consider the fact that he shaves his head. But, still, the deal was made, and the kids worked hard every game. And, finally on the last game of the year, all the kiddos scored ~ with a little help from the refs who knew about the deal. Anyway, today was the Upwards awards banquet, and Erik and Sean came with purple heads/hair much to their team's delight!
Here is the artist at work. . .

The boys asked Erik several times over the course of the day to keep his hair purple. I am just praying it comes out easily! JCT referred to him as "the purple headed man" all day!
It was a fun memory for Erik and Sean to add to their collection of fun memories! And, it was a fun memory for Joshua and all his teammates!
