Mara Beard very necessary.
“The players won’t like this, but I wish they all would stop growing beards in the postseason,” Lazarus said. “Let’s get their faces out there. Let’s talk about how young and attractive they are. What model citizens they are. (Hockey players) truly are one of a kind among professional athletes.
“I know it’s a tradition and superstition, but I think (the beards do) hurt recognition. They have a great opportunity with more endorsements. Or simply more recognition with fans saying, ‘That guy looks like the kid next door,’ which many of these guys do. I think that would be a nice thing.”
Ya know whats cool nowadays (and has probably jumped the shark)? Beards. Ya know whats always been manly as fuck? Beards. It’s called fashion Mark, look it up, and in hockey you simply don’t mess with tradition*. Ken Morrow walked outta Lake Placid with gold in hand and into Nassau onto pro ice and said “fuck this shaving bullshit, I came to win.” And unfortunately, that’s exactly what he did for 4 straight years. Thus the full follicle tradition was born. Seriously as the saying goes, “how do you shave your beard? YOU DON’T.” So yea, I don’t think anyone’s about to listen to smooth faced Mark Lazarus of NBC. Not to mention, last I checked Gillette, the best a man can get, is a long time sponsor of the League of National Hockey and I’m PRETTY sure you need facial hair in order to market such a product geared toward the removal of such. Cross promotion BITCH, use your brain one time for me MARK.
Seriously, hockey’s a man’s game played by men, other than Sidney Crosby.
Hit puberty sometime before age 30 bro honestly.
*EXCEPTION: ’94 Rangers, ‘cuz Mess told his troops he aint partaking in any Islander bullshit.
