In this crucial week of practice & preparation it looks as if Coach Austin is starting off with 1 maybe 2 days growth. I'm a little concerned ... I would have preferred a good, full, healthy week's worth at this point! You can always trim it back! I sure hope Kent isn't taking a cavalier attitude to this very important aspect of game prep & TiCats success correlation! I'm not sure at what rate Kent sprouts facial hair so we'll have to keep an eye on it.
But just in case ... I recommend Kent start increasing his intake of Vitamins B1, B6 & B12. 2.5 mgs of Biotin daily & eat lots & lots & lots of protein! Watching reruns of Duck Dynasty wouldn't hurt either!
I've never been the biggest fan of these playoff beards. The teams that win think the beards brought them good luck. But what about the teams that lost? I think the NY Islanders started the trend around 1980 or so. Everybody in the championship photo always looks like Grizzly Adams.
It's not about playoff bearding, it's Austin's stubble. When Austin comes to the game clean shaven, they lose more often then when he comes into the game stubbly. Kent Austin's stubble has magical powers, however, it needs to reach that happy medium, just beyond short sexy stubble but just bellow grubby stubble.
Case and point.
