Every satirist in the industry is picking on Ben growing a beard (and Plummer for that matter, too). I am not sure about this one, but isn't it supposedly good luck or tradition to not shave when you are on a team in the playoffs? Or is that just an NHL thing?

as long as ben keeps playing good i dont care what he looks like.
i did like his clean cut, military style hair cut he had last year......but its the plaoffs....
not worried about looks and hair style......
Just a W

Isn't it a western PA thing? I remember guys in my high school (Hempfield) growing beards. Every time I get up to Pittsburgh, I see lots of guys with full beards.

I think it's just a locale thing. Jake's doing the mountain man thing up in Denver.

it's true....usually when a team is in playoffs, they don't shave....it's both for NHL and NFL

My dad made the comment a few weeks ago at christmas after watching Super Bowl 9 that Ben is just copying what Bradshaw did back in the day with the beard. Hell it worked then lets go with it... :helmet:

haha unfortunately I can vouch for that. there are definitely quite a few mullets living around here :screwy:


but I agree...I can deal with Ben's beard for a few more weeks if we keep playing real Steelers football!

I dont know what it is. Bens looks fine, but Plummers makes him look stupid. I'm not sayin that cuz they r our opponents or n e thing. He just looks dirty lol
