By the Beard of Zanon!

No secret that Pants and I appreciated a good beard, especially come playoff time.

So you can imagine my utter delight when I saw this while watching the Stars vs. Avalanche game last night.


Now that is a beard!

It redefines the term “Fear the Beard”.  With the helmet on, this thing is perfectly symmetrically.  His head becomes this oblong portrait of masculinity, sport, and ridiculousness.

And it’s GINGER!

Now some may say the beard is overcompensation for Zanon’s bald pate.   I like to think that the hairs on his head realized where the real party was at.

I, for one, am glad to know that if his hockey career doesn’t work out, he can find work as any one of the following:

  • an extra in a Civil War epic
  • an extra in a movie about the impending Zombie Apocalypse
  • a home for baby birds and small woodland creatures
  • a competitor in the World Beard and Moustache Championships
  • a Viking
  • a bad guy on the latest season of “Game of Thrones”

Best of all, the Beard’s has its own twitter handle – @ZanonsBeard.  Sadly, it only has 560 followers.

Clearly, this is not nearly enough.

I, along with all of you, our faithful WUYS readers, must take it upon ourselves to spread the word of the Beard. 

Facebook it.

Twitter it.

Hashtag it. (#BeardofZanon)

A wondrous thing such as this needs to be celebrated and heralded by all the hockey world.

All the world must know about the tremendous, awesome, and spectacular fluffiness of the Beard of Zanon.

Thanks to our friends at Puck Daddy, you can learn more about this beauty here.

  1. The only thing I’m sad about is that he didn’t have this glorious ginger beard when he was in Boston.

    I love him.

    His beard is a thing of wonder.

    I randomly met a man on a plane who told me all about competing in World Beard and Moustache Competitions…and also explained that his wife competed along side him (with a fake beard, he assured me). Weird.

    • Uh, ya think?
      I love beards and all, but that is just wrong.

    “Great Odin’s Raven!” is exactly what I thought when I saw this on TV…I was going to tweet you guys something about it, but couldn’t find the right words!
