Tim Lincecum adds wispy mustache to his facial hair repertoire

Tim Lincecum mustache

Tim Lincecum showed up to spring training once again sporting a new look. This time instead of his hair being different, he had a new facial hair look.

Yes, Lincecum now has a wispy mustache.

I’m sure based on the photo above you might think the ‘stache is coming in somewhat well. But looks can be deceiving.

Grant Brisbee at SB Nation shared an up-close look at Tim Lincecum’s mustache, and that’s how we can really see that it sure could use some work:

Steve Nash rocking beautiful mustache for Lakers return

Steve Nash mustache

Steve Nash is returning to the lineup for the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday, and he’s bringing some super facial hair with him.

Nash has missed the last 39 games because of a combination of injuries. He’s turning 40 in a few days, but he’s not too old to ball out. Or at least the Lakers hope so.

While he’s been out, he’s been growing the facial hair. He had a beard going as of Tuesday, but he shaved it to leave that sick looking mustache you see at the top.

Here’s how he looked earlier on Tuesday:

Aaron Rodgers killing the mustache game

Aaron Rodgers mustache

Aaron Rodgers is taking the mustache game to the next level.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback may be out with a broken collarbone, but he is not forgotten on the sidelines of the team’s games. FOX showed shots of Rodgers on the sidelines during the Packers’ 26-26 tie with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, and the quarterback’s ‘stache stood out immediately.

Would you look at that beauty? He’s got full range on that mustache. Coverage from nose to upper lip. Not a spot missing.

As far as we can tell, Rodgers began growing the ‘stache in the preseason and has kept it going. Now it’s just a full thick nest that would make Mike Ditka jealous. Give this guy a pair of aviators and he’d be accepted into a police academy immediately, no questions asked.

Of course, despite our praise of his ‘stache, he’s been catching a lot of crap for it. Many are saying it makes him look like a pedophile:

Brian Wilson reportedly offered $1 million to shave his beard

Brian-Wilson-beardWhat would Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Brian Wilson be without the beard? Wilson’s insane facial hair became a symbol of the San Francisco Giants’ success since he stepped into the team’s closer role in 2008. It has been featured on billboards, buses, and even a commercial airliner ever since, but a $1 million offer could make it disappear.

According to RadarOnline.com, a razor blade company called 800Razors.com has been negotiating with Wilson in an attempt to convince him to shave off his famous beard for a massive endorsement deal that would make him the face of their corporation.

“His management feels we need to match his present salary of $1 million at a minimum,” 800Razors.com co-founder and president Philip Masiello told Radar. “Over the weekend and continuing today, we have been in discussions with his management at MVP sports to finalize the terms under which Brian would participate in a beard shaving promotion and endorsement.”

A copy of the offer letter and pitch 800Razors.com has sent to Wilson can be seen here.

“His beard is iconic, we are in the quality razor industry and want to partner with other shaving icons to show how great our product is,” Masiello added. “If it can tackle shaving a beard like his, it can work wonders on the average man.”

Wilson’s contract with the Dodgers is worth only $1 million, so he could probably use the extra money. His grizzly beard has landed him a number of endorsement opportunities, but he is not the player he used to be prior to his surgery. A $1 million shaving endorsement may be as good as it’s going to get.

Ian Desmond shaved his goatee in the middle of a game


For whatever reason, baseball players are some of the most superstitious athletes in sports. Washington Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond is no exception.

On Tuesday night, Desmond strolled to the plate in the 1st inning with a goatee and ended up grounding into a double play. When he returned for his second at-bat in the 3rd inning, the facial hair was gone.

As JP Finlay of CSNWashington.com pointed out, Desmond flied out to right in the 3rd and grounded out again in the 6th. Losing the goatee did not seem to give him a boost on a night where he went 1-for-4 and the Nationals lost 4-2, but I guess it was worth a try. As Bryce Harper reminded us a few months back, MLB players are willing to try some incredibly weird things to help them find success.

Andrew Ference erases his playoff beard, coughs away his mustache (Video)

Andrew-Ference-erases-playoff-beardThose 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.

Shane Battier is rocking a sweet playoff mustache (Picture)


The Miami Heat handled the Milwaukee Bucks with ease in the opening round of the playoffs, and they are now awaiting their next opponent. If the Brooklyn Nets are able to even their series against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night, they could be waiting a while.

In the meantime, Shane Battier has decided to try out a new look. As you can see from the photo above that ESPN’s Tom Haberstroh passed along, Battier is rocking a fantastic mustache. It’s kind of a mix between a fu manchu and a handlebar stache, which makes it tough to label.

“I don’t know what to call this, to be honest with you,” Battier said when asked about it, according to Haberstroh.

Let’s just call it what it is — awesome. Does it rival Kevin Love’s amazing stache? Absolutely not, but with a little effort there’s no reason Battier can’t get there by the time the NBA Finals roll around.
