As a general rule, any attempt by an athlete to grow some sort of interesting facial hair is a welcomed endeavor, especially when it takes place in Movember and could potentially help raise money for a good cause.
But when the facial hair reminds you in any way of San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson, well, we don’t know if we’re a fan. That’s the vibe we got last night when we saw Claude Giroux’s dyed ‘stache. G gets incredibly high marks for effort, but it doesn’t appear to be a look he can pull off real well.
One retired hockey blogger said it looked like Giroux “has a black caterpillar on his face.”
It’s hard to disagree. Then again, it’s probably not easy for a ginger to pull of a natural ‘stache either.
That said, Giroux can pretty much do whatever he wants and we’d still praise him.
What says you? You diggin’ Giroux’s new lip warmer?
