Brian Wilson, famed Phillies season-ender, has spent the past year recovering from Tommy John surgery. Non-tendered by the Giants, he was recently picked up by the Dodgers, and is about to resurface as a bullpen threat.
Wilson's beard was at one point so much a part of his persona that some believed it was actually a parasitic host and he himself was a mere husk, doomed to perform its bidding.
Most sane people saw it as a bunch of hair on his face. And he might be about to prove whose boss by shaving it for $1 million, according to Radar Online.
A razor company, 800Razors.com, is anxious to get his advocacy, and is willing to spend the cash to get it. Part of the deal would include shaving that beard. If this is how we finally end this trope, then so be it.
Is there such a thing as a mohawk-shaving razor. Because maybe one of those companies should also step in.
