Once a year in honor of the movie 'Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story', ESPN 2 rebrands itself as 'ESPN 8 The Ocho. If you don't know the movie, you most likely will not get the Ocho meaning, it does not matter. What matters is this Friday, August 6th The Ocho channel will be airing the Michigan USA Mullet Championships Contest that was filmed in Fenton.

The USA Mullet Championships brand and contesting was developed by Kevin Begola, owner of Bridge Street Exchange in Fenton and also a location in Somerset Mall. Look for Kevin when you are watching the contest, he along with my boyfriend Nick Starr and the lovely Johanna Hoelzle from The Machine Shop are the three featured judges. The event was filmed last year at the Fenton Winery and Brewery.

It is really exciting to see a locally created contest go nationwide. I love that the USA Mullet Championships have grown to feature not just only men's mullet contesting, but women and children too.

Grab some beers, your friends and get ready to see some super sweet mullets. It’s all business at the Mullet Championships, but the party’s still in the back. The finest mullets from across the country face off to claim the title of the greatest mullet. From the opening profiles to the final blow-off, you don’t want to miss it. Show time Friday is at 5:30 PM. You can watch all of the fun here. May the best mullet win!
