    world series beards

    I'm not a big sports fan but I always watch the super bowl and the world series. WTF is the deal with the beards? Baseball players and cow boys were always clean cut as a rule and these guys look ridiculous. You're baseball players not loggers and if you want a beard grow a freakin beard not one of these weird facial hair art things. I swear it's about enough to make me shave my beard off.

    Yeah. Gomes has just gone nuts. There's no good reason for that mess. Napoli is the other one that's just out of hand and I don't see how Saltalamacchia can wear that mask for 9 innings but at least his beard fits with that mop of hair.

    For Boston, I assume that it was a giant middle finger to the Yankees, owned by Steinbrenner - who always insisted that his players be very clean-cut and clean-shaven.

    It's the playoff beard. Athletes are superstitious and won't do anything different from what they've done before. That's why you'll see players take the same number of practice swings, etc.

    The playoff beard is a popular tradition in hockey where players would not shave during the playoffs. I think the Red Sox have had it all year, which is odd. If they win the series, you'll start to see other teams doing the same. The Red Sox were always known for having less stringent grooming requirements than say the Yankees. When Johnny Damon went from the Sox to the Yankees, he had to get a haircut and shave to make The Boss happy. The most notable exception to the Yankees "no facial hair" rule was Don Mattingly, who was allowed to keep his 'stache.

    Better get used to them because they aren't coming off until after the WS.

    Who cares, as long as it doesn't effect their game.

    I love the Cardinals and will always root for them, but I think the Sox beards are awesome.

    I agree with awesome beards part. I don't really like beards, but that's just a thing they do, and if it doesn't hurt their playing then I don't see that it's a big deal.
