Best Habs Facial Hair

Thankfully Movember has only a few hours left as many men reach for their razors to rid themselves of the horrors growing on their upper lips.

Some men just aren't meant for facial hair; others do it with style, panache and ease.

In sports, baseball seems to breed some good growth, probably because they have so much time on their hands.

This year's winning S.F. Giants had quite a few on their roster, led by their closer, Brian Wilson -- who looked like he was wearing a fake beard because he dyed his jet black, giving him less of a Goose Gossage look and more of an intimidating Mad Dog Vachon one instead.

But nobody did it better than Rollie Fingers (above with the Oakland A's).

My brother reminded me of some of the great Habs facial hair from the teams in the seventies -- pretty much everyone had sideburns then, but he forgot the best one of 'em all: Larry Robinson!!!

I still think he looks funny now that he goes without the 'stache :)


  1. Goaltending is a normal job, sure. How would you like it in your job if every time you made a small mistake, a red light went on over your desk and 15,000 people stood up and yelled at you.

  2. Thanks Lucy! Can I have your number!?

    Yeah, well as a goalie, I can understand that :)
