Those of us sports fans who dread the months of July and August were sad to see the Stanley Cup Finals end on Monday night without giving us one last game to look forward to. The wives and girlfriends of the players, however, were probably singing a different tune. The end of the playoffs means the end of the beards.
On Tuesday, Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference showed us the magic of Vine when he magically erased his playoff beard and coughed away his mustache. The short clip was a perfect example of why I’m such an ideal candidate to attend magic shows, because I literally have no idea how he did it.
The healing process won’t be easy for the Bruins after they blew a 2-1 lead with less than two minutes remaining, but losing the playoff facial hair is the right place to start. Ference simply went above and beyond.
PS: LB grew this legendary playoff beard two years ago when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup. Do you think it’s a coincidence they fell short this year? Me neither.
