Gongshow Flow of the Month winner for December announced
January 8, 2016
December is a month of holidays and cheer. We at the NA3HL cheer those players who continue to show off their great flow and December had plenty of candidates.
With that said, the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) announced its GONGSHOW Flow of the Month winner for December 2015.
The winner this month is goaltender Glen Bates from the Toledo Cherokee.
Bates, 20, is in the middle of his second and final season playing in the NA3HL for the Cherokee. The native of Ida, MI, has appeared in 19 games to date and has a record of 9-7-1. He has 521 saves and has a goals against average of 3.34 and a save percentage of 90%.
Clearly the magic behind Bates’ goaltending prowess is his flow, which can best be described as slick. Instead of going with the popular feathered look or grand mane, Bates decides to go with the curly wet look.
In fact, we believe that we have a true doppelganger for Bates in movie star Matthew Conaughey. They look pretty similar don’t you think?
Bates walks the fine line of having his hair just curly and long enough to be considered stylish without being greasy. Sometimes the wet look is the best look and Bates manages to pull it off.
Goalies are people too and just because they hide behind a mask, doesn’t mean that their flow underneath isn’t something to behold. Congrats Glen… and for his effort, he will be receiving a GONGSHOW Gear hat.
