Nice Touch
 
I noticed this during Game 2 when the tv cameras did a close-up of Vanek and my buddy sitting next to me said, "Vanek's playoff beard is going to look really strange when it grows in. It looks like it's all on the sides, none in the middle."

It took me a few minutes, and after seeing few more close-up shots of the players, to realize what some of them are doing. It looks like they're growing mustaches and sideburns, instead of the full beard. I can only assume this is a way of honoring Rick Martin.

Just another sign that the players on this year's team "get it."

The picture of Drew Stafford in The Buffalo News today shows that he's growing the mustache and sideburns, too. I've noticed Vanek and Gerbe growing the same.

Nice touch.

I apologize if this was mentioned in another thread... I haven't seen anyone else write about it, though.

The idea of mustaches for Rico has been discussed around here, but I didn't hear anything about the players doing it.

That said, if they are, there certainly isn't going to anybody around here complaining about it.

That's pretty awesome. Great way to honor Martin.

Looks legit.

Very nice gesture, but I'm sticking with the beard, otherwise I'll look like Joe Dirt without the mullet.

Totally awesome.

This is basically the coolest thing ever. Go Sabres!

Montag DP 04-18-2011 10:12 AM

Oh, that's funny. I noticed Stafford's and thought it was an attempt at a playoff beard that ended up being just a creeper 'stache. Glad that's not the case.

Sweet now I can shave my beard minus the mutton chops and 70s porn star mustache. Rico Suave.

Now all we need is a deep run to let em all grow in.

Dr. Zoidberg 04-18-2011 11:57 AM

Awesome; this is the first time since 05-06 that I've actually liked this team. Please keep winning...

I definitely pointed that out on Saturday too. I think it's a great honor to #7.

Its been 2 games I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. If you're referring to previous years, he's only played 3 playoff games in which he wasnt a rookie.
