I think we can safely assume that this will be the must-have facial accessory for every dude [and the occasional, overly-Nordic chick] in Minnesota this spring.
I for one will be doing everything I can to muster some semblance of respectable facial hair to emulate his Mauerness and all his stubblicious glory.
Unfortunately it’s gone.
Mauer Beard, we hardly knew ye…
Perkins still has a decent one.
Perk ain’t lookin’ too shabby.
I assume we can expect Kubel to rock the stubble as always and hopefully JJ Hardy will get his scruff on as well.
In the end, as long as Blackburn morphs back into “Big Game Blackbeard” at some point in 2010, I’ll be a happy man.
