If so, and there was a story in local papers or on the Net, I'd like to read it if someone could post it here.
Many thanks. kpd/hoh
Alfredsson guaranteed that he wouldn't get his hair cut until they won the cup, but that was back in 1998. Actually he said it on TV, but as I recall, it was the interviewer who said "so, can you guarantee that you'll win the cup this year?" and he answered "Sure" or something equally flippant. He was humouring the questioner rather than making a statement, and he had a grin on his face when he said it. I'm sure somebody here will have a more exact recollection, but it was not too serious.
