Beard update number 5 — Bring on the Penguins!

May 18, 2009 § 1 Comment


So, the Carolina Hurricanes have kept on winning in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, going through back-to-back seven game series against the New Jersey Devils and the Boston Bruins. The Cardiac Canes are back, making the most of full-time (and overtime) to get the wins. As a result, my playoff beard is still going strong (I haven’t shaved the beard since April 9, giving me 39 days of growth and counting.)

Again, I’m growing my playoff beard out for the Carolina Hurricanes’ Beardathon, which is raising money for the Hurricanes’ Kids ‘N Community foundation. You can continue to donate here ( if you want to contribute to this worthy cause.

Look at that growth! I mean seriously… that is some massive undergrowth there… especially the dark, scruffy under the chin stuff that drives my wife crazy. Last night in the shower, I’m pretty sure I washed out a bird that was building a nest in there. Pretty soon I’m going to start looking like one of the Avett Brothers.

Since the games are more spaced out in the 3rd and 4th rounds of the playoffs, I’ll have a good couple more weeks in this round at the very least (and I expect the Hurricanes to beat the Penguins, so we could be looking at another 4 or 5 weeks’s growth by the end.) I will keep posting pics as we go along.
