This Is Why

There's a reason the Yankees have their seemingly antiquated policies about facial hair and hair length. This is why:

If your screen isn't broken, then you're probably asking who is that and where can we find the beast that birthed it in order to put an end to its wretched existence. That's Phil Coke. That's what he looks like when he can grow a mullet and a creepy goatee. Let's all be grateful for the wise policy the Yankees have implemented.

There are a few guys I trust with facial hair. Albert Pujols, Troy Tulowitski, and Roy Halladay among them.

But for the most part the Yankees organization is wise to keep such atrocities from being forced on its fans.

I would've started turning the games off in the seventh if I was subjected to this on a regular basis.

I usually love your blog and agree with most things on here, but I couldn't feel stronger in the other direction.

Facial Hair is the Greatest thing ever.

It's like a shapeable removable face tattoo. It's a form of expression. It's standing up to the MAN.

I could list all the players with Rad Facial hair, but I will just list one.

Rollie Fingers.

Yes he is considered by many to define the modern day role of relief pitching.

Yes he was apart of the A's three-peat.

Yes he is a Cy young Winner and an inductee to the Hall of Fame.

But what is best known for.

Stache...the Greatest Stache of his Era...maybe the whole modern era.

Sure there are unsightly soul patches, wispy beards and just general unkemptlyness, but you have to have the bad to have the awesome.

So sir I say neigh to your post.

I salute the facial hair and mullets, cause even when they are bad, they are Oh So goood.

I direct the jury to exhibit A (the picture posted in the body of this blog entry). I rest my case.

At first I thought that Todd Jones had returned to the Tigers.

Phil Coke also got fat. He just looks really bad.

Roberto E. Alejandro said...

Getting traded will do that to you.

Dylan Murphy said...

Here's the important question. Do we like that Coke picture over the Giambi moustache?

Riddering - Tulo has facial hair?? But the others are excellent choices (as is Tulo, just... he has facial hair?).
