Brady, Baker buzzed for charity

BOSTON — The nation's most popular governor and New England's most beloved quarterback now have something in common: matching haircuts.

For the fourth year in a row, Gov. Charlie Baker went under the clippers for charity, getting a buzz cut to support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at the annual "Saving By Shaving" event at Quincy's Granite Telecommunications.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was a surprise guest this year, and sat next to Baker as their heads were shorn.

Baker posed for a selfie with Brady while the two were in their barber's chairs, but quipped on radio station WAAF that he expected most of the cameras to focus their shots just on Brady.

"I think the long story short is we will all be cropped out," the governor said.

Over the past four years, Granite has contributed $14.7 million to Dana-Farber from its Saving by Shaving event.

Quincy Mayor Thomas Koch, Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton, and Reps. Tim Whelan, Paul Tucker, Michael Day, Joe McGonagle, and David Muradian were also scheduled to participate.
