What a coincidence. I'm a Cardinal fan too, as of a couple days ago. Same day I shaved out of anger.

As a woman I must admit I am thankful that I don't have as much facial hair as you guys do. :-D However, I gotta admit my face would be a whole lot warmer in the winter if I could grow a coat.

The best beards are grown by hockey players during Stanley Cup playoff time, probably because they have so much time to do so during the playoffs. I grow mine every year then, too, as long as the Red Wings are in the playoffs. Oh, by the way, sorry Patrick that we spoiled your coaching debut.

I hate having a beard in the winter!! I can't stand the feeling of wet/frozen mustache on the face. :cry:

I'm a year-round beard farmer. The winter-time beardaclava benefits are well known, but most people don't realize that a good beard also keeps the sun and heat off your face in the summer too. It helps big time working as a wildland firefighter when you're trying to dig line right next to hot flames.

Remember kids.....Take care of your beard, and your beard will take care of you.
