ESPN Claim: John Clayton Does Not Have A PonytailS

A month ago, we got a glimpse of what looked to be the fabled ponytail of John Clayton. Now comes the official denial from ESPN.

An ESPN spokesman — one who, it should be said, went to great lengths to answer our question — writes in an email:

[A]pparently its possible to have hair combed out a bit in back…far from ponytail…now you can go back to deconstructing the kennedy assassination..

Listen closely and you can almost hear him sigh.

Meanwhile, reader Tyler sends the above screengrab. Is it just us, or does it look as if John's sporting a little grassy knoll in back?
