Grow 'Em If You Got 'Em! BSI Wants to See Your Beard.

With just nine days to go until the Major League Baseball playoffs start the staff here at BSI has decided to get their beard on and we want you to do the same.

To celebrate the season of the beard, we’re asking you to grow ‘em if you got ‘em and send a picture to [email protected] so that we can publish the best of the best or worst of the worst as the case may be. Make sure and include your name, where you are from and anything else you feel may explain your fuzziness so we can credit appropriately. Blond, black, brown, red, thick, thin, beasty, wispy – however you want to express your support of the Sox is what we’re looking for. Ladies, you are not exempt. Halloween is just around the corner. There are plenty of novelty and party shops. The men demand the unique expression of your womanhood.  Who knows, for some it may be a turn on.

My 55-year old gray goatee whiskers have already started to make their presence known. Personally, I can say the Sox will need to go deep in the playoffs for my facial presence to make itself fully known. In the meantime I’ll endure my wife’s tolerant but nevertheless “you’re crazy” looks. Senior Staff Writer Earl Nash presciently anticipated this moment, having had his white beard on for years.

So let’s get down to business. Put down that razor and let your freak flag fly. Get your beard on! Go Sox!

See my beard?
Ain’t it weird?
Don’t be scared
It’s just a beard

I have the terrible feeling that, because I am wearing a white beard and am sitting in the back of the theatre, you expect me to tell you the truth about something. These are the cheap seats, not Mount Sinai.
- Orson Welles

But you have to understand, my beard is so nasty. I mean, I had the only beard in the western hemisphere that made Bob Dylan’s look good.
- Bill Walton

The basic thing a man should know is how to change a tyre and how to drive a tractor. Whatever that bearded dude is doing on the Dos Equis beer commercials sets the bar. That’s your guy. Every man should be aiming to be like him. The beard is just the tip of the iceberg.
- Timothy Olyphant
