Beards! What is a sports man without a beard? What is an athlete without a aerodynamically inefficient mass of chin hair?
It’s intimidating, it’s masculine, it’s easier than shaving and every one is unique. If you don’t like a beard, then quite simply you’re wrong.
Brett Favre… Remember him? The former Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets QB?
Well he’s introduced us today, via twitter, to his new face companion, causing much Internet appreciation and discussion.
So, as an enjoyer of my own personal beard and appreciator of many other furry face efforts, we have a look at the top 5 current beards in the NFL that Brett Favre doesn't even come close to.
Of course we have some honourable mentions that aren’t in the NFL world.
James Harden’s beard is exquisite and if it isn’t insured by the Houston Rockets then it should be. And the LA Dodgers' Brain Wilson's beard would look more apt in a ZZ Top video, complete with its own ponytail...
So without further ado, get that beard wax ready…
