Like I love how one is called the Zetterberg, and they say Forsberg sports it, yet Forsberg was around before Zetterberg so wouldnt it be the Forsberg?????

When do we start this? April 12th after the last Flyers game? The day before the first Flyers playoff game. Some other time?

I'm on the fence for what to grow. I can rock a pretty badass George Parros stache, a decent goat, or a borderline Cindy Crosby beard. Any suggestions?

The real marvel of the thing was that he never made it past the first round.

I grew a Joe Blanton/Brad Lidge one for the Phils last year and I kinda liked it so I kept it.

Although I will trim around April 12 and go from there.

i'm with ya. but i'm undecided as to whether or not to start fresh...i've been rocking my playoff beard ever since the start of last year's PO's. I turned the beard into a self-promotion campaign for my search for an advertising/design job once i graduated from school. think of it as "won't shave till i get a full-time job."

I didn't trim/shave/groom it for something like 3 months...it was ridiculous:


since then, i've kept it but kept it much cleaner. thanks to this wonderful economy, however, the beard is still here. unfortunately, i've discovered that I apparently do not possess the "connectors" between my mustache and the rest of the beard, so that's annoying.

but yeah. not sure if i should just cut it close and use it as a leg-up on this year's playoffs, or start from scratch, or just leave it as is and pretend i'm mike commodore, sans red hair.

on a somewhat unrelated note, i can't wait till we can all get together to tailgate/bbq/grill at a playoff game, where it'll look like some gang rolled in from the Ozarks to descend upon the Wachovia center parking lot.

EDIT: You guys are all starting your beards way too damn early. It's a playoff beard, not a end of the season into playoff beard.

on a somewhat unrelated note, i can't wait till we can all get together to tailgate/bbq/grill at a playoff game, where it'll look like some gang rolled in from the Ozarks to descend upon the Wachovia center parking lot.

I dont think that is a very smart idea in this job market. Hire the guy that has less qualifications with a huge red beard or the guy that has better qualifications with a clean shave...hmmmmmmmmmmm

Am I the only one that finds this funny?

risky, shaving (cleaning up) might just help you with your searches. No?

haha that's exactly it. i came up with the idea so that i wouldn't have to shave my beard and jinx the team. and don't worry before i went for any interviews my beard was cleaned up and much much much shorter. the other good thing is thankfully, anywhere that i'd be working (due to the nature of their business) would be pretty understanding of this. the whole point of it was that, like the playoff beard, as soon as i got the job i'd be clean shaven. thankfully in my industry the companies are more concerned with the quality of your work. if i was, say, a bank teller, a corporate guy, or any number of other jobs, sure, this approach wouldn't work at all.

believe me, i had a hard enough time convincing the parents/grandparents it was a good idea. but so far the stuff i've sent out about it to agencies and what not have gotten great responses, problem is, there aren't many positions available in philly right now for someone a year out of school.

Once getting the job, grow your bead like ****ing santa clause if you want. It's getting the job with the beard thats the problem. No matter how "well kept" it is, its just a horrible move.

My bosses wife isnt keen on us doing the playoff beards. She wanted to fire us. Fortunatly, her husband runs the show and joins in with us lol. I wont lie we look real unprofessional walking into these multi million dollar pieces of property looking like hicks. My one co worker had a really gnarly beard it was like the dipstick dude: Im going for that this year, and if the flyers win it all ill die the ****er orange.
