Can't stand the whole beard thing the Red Sox players got going on

So, I'll go along with the idea that anything the Sox do is dubious, probably wrong, maybe seditious.

But beards rock. If the O's all decided to pull out the full Rutherford B. Hayes I'd be very much in favor. I applaud Nick and his whiskers. I rejoiced when the O's facial hair ban was lifted. Now... maybe the over-the-top Duck Dynasty or House of David barnstorming team look that might be a bit much. But hair grows out of our face for a reason. I don't know what that reason is, but it can't be wrong.

Gonna have to agree with the OP.

The beard-photos you all have posted (and, I'm guessing, your own beards) look good. Goes with the face-shape, nicely groomed, and all that. Markakis's looks cool. I can dig O'Day's scruff -- suits him well. As far as non-Oriole/non-baseball facial hair goes, I'm equally down with the untamed hockey playoff beard as with Brian Boyle's Guy Fawkes-ish version.

But the Red Sox just look like convicts. Which points to an attitude among certain pro ballplayers I kind of can't stand. I get it: You're a hard-man, you're in a vocation where physicality is part of the skill-set; you're probably from the South. You're also getting paid lavishly to play the same game you've been playing since you were six. You go to your city's toniest nightclubs and drive seven-figure sports cars and live in penthouses and snack on Beluga. You can afford a membership with Dollar Shave Club. Quit acting like you head up one of the white gangs on "Oz."

I think this is the perfect post.

Hayes was a terrible President. Won a contested, backroom deal election, screwed up reconstruction, basically the source of a lot of future problems.

Hayes can suck it. Posthumously.
