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.
GREAT ODIN’S RAVEN!
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.
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.
