#beardpact Days 3 and 4: Not Unlike a Wool Sweater

Whew!  How ’bout that game last night?  The Washington Capitals beat the Montreal Canadiens in a plum zinger of a hockey game.  John Carlson and Nick Backstrom summoned some playoff heroics for us, but there’s a problem: they’re both clean-shaven.  Do they know something we don’t?

Just between you and me, RMNB might have taken the celebration too far.  The word hangover seems understated; it’s more like an aftermath.  Compounding the problem, Caps Nation is looking increasingly more haggard.  Scanning the #beardpact channel, I’m seeing a broad spectrum of growth.  Before we get to the parade of stubble, let’s check in with the Russian Machinists.

El Hefe Ian Oland is cheering up, but he’s still #1 on the  most likely to shave list.  Do not let him.

Sentence-maker Peter Hassett is cheerful despite looking terrible.

Numerical Savant Neil Greenberg‘s whimsy declined somewhat in the second period last night.

Even the elusive Russian correspondent Fedor Fedin is getting in on the action!

Actually, Justin Bieber

Parade of Stubble!

    There’s no way I’m going to bail before you Peter. Seriously, these are big words from a man who can’t grow any hair between the sideburns/neck area. It’s on like Donkey Kong!

    At this rate, neither one of you will shave because you’ll want to beat the other. I’m liking the competition.
