Beards

  1. If the Flyers win tonight former boxing champ Riddick Bowe is going to beat some [butts]

    Where to even begin with this? There’s just so much going here. The guys over at Broad Street Hockey had quite the exchange on twitter yesterday with former professional boxing champion Riddick Bowe, who you may remember from such matches as the “Fan Man” fight and his other bouts with Evander Holyfield. They asked Bowe,…

  2. You can purchase Shane Victorino’s scraggily beard hair on eBay

    Just felt the need to point that out to you. It’s true. You can, in fact, purchase the beard hair of Red Sox players Shane Victorino and David Ortiz on eBay. Mike Oz of Yahoo!’s Big League Stew explains, “The items come with autographed razors used at the post-World Series ceremonial shaving that both Ortiz and Victorino…

  3. The Evster reviews NFL Network’s ‘The Football Life: Randall Cunningham’

    Growing up, no one, and I mean NO ONE, made me lose my shit more than Randall Cunningham. Not Shawn Kemp. Not Frank Drebin. Not even the lovely ladies of Hustler magazine and their knee-high tube socks. Randall Cunningham was The Ultimate Weapon Bonkers Machine. So when I heard that the NFL Network was going to…

  4. Brent Celek knows the way to football writers’ hearts. Through their stomachs.

    We wrote about Brent Celek’s mustache-themed eatery called Prime Stache back when it first opened up. He’s now expanded from just his location in Old City to a ‘stache on wheels. The Prime Stache lunch truck was down at the NovaCare Complex this afternoon providing the hungry and animalistic media with free lunch. Clearly Celek…

  5. Video: Jayson Werth Did Not Like the Aura That Post Game Microphone Was Putting Out, Abruptly Ends Interview

    And you wonder why some Phillies fans feel like this? Jayson Werth had a reputation as being a bit surly with the media during his time in Philadelphia and a bit of that showed on Thursday night after the Nationals loss to the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Werth is going through a pretty typical…

  6. Ian Desmond Shaved in the Middle of the Nationals Loss to the Phillies Last Night

    Maybe the old Cole Hamels is back? The Cole Hamels that breaks faces. Or at least alters them in strange ways in the middle of games. Washington Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond must have come close to having his face broken by Hamels when he grounded into a double play early in the game on Monday…

  7. Brent Celek’s Mustache-Themed Hot Dog Eatery is Coming to Old City

    Brent Celek’s Prime Stache American Bistro is coming Old City. DeSean will likely be on the menu. Get it? Hot dogs? Wait up, guys.

  8. Breaking Down the W.B. Mason Commercials Opening Day Lineup

    A special guest post by Laura Swartz

    Opening Day—the promise of another season, new players, fresh grass, and an inevitable slate of more W.B. Mason commercials. Through the years, W.B. Mason has been reminding baseball fans that they exist and sell office supplies using various formats: a musical, a reality show, and even a vaguely racist detective series. If this year’s Spring Training broadcasts were any indication, W.B. Mason seems to be sticking with its latest sales campaign, the exploits of the “BuyRight Kids.”

  9. Cliff Lee on Cole Hamels’ Stache: ‘That’s a Big League Mustache’

    Things get serious on Monday in Atlanta so over the weekend at Citizens Bank Park the Phillies had quite a bit of fun. From Jimmy Rollins selecting players at-bat music today, Chase Utley serving you a beer, to Charlie Manuel chauffeuring fans from the parking lot to the ball park yesterday, there was all sorts of hijinx going on. Among the best was clearly Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee taking over the Phanatic’s legendary hot dog launcher. Oh, and Cole’s mustache.

  10. Cole Hamels Has a Beard But It Is Not Long for This World

    Cole Hamels threw his final game action of the spring this afternoon. His stuff looked sharp and honed, but his appearance was not quite Opening Day ready. Well, his facial appearance specifically.

  11. Mug Shot: Lenny Dykstra Is Looking Gray and Bearded

    Feb 24, 2013, 2:28 PM EDT

    When last we checked in on old Nails, we learned that the Dude was going to be the father-in-law to Meadow Soprano. Good times. Now, TMZ unearthed this mugshot of Lenny Dykstra looking all gray and bearded. If only he had some Twizzlers to add some color and life to the shot. They don’t specify…

  12. That Mike Schmidt Nike Mustache T-Shirt You Have Is Now Totally Out of Style

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/997119.jpg

    That sweet Nike t-shirt you have featuring the silhouette of Michael Jack Schmidt’s sweet hair and mustache is now totally outdated. Delco Times photographer Eric Hartline captured the above image of Schmidty down in Clearwater, Florida today and it clearly shows that the mustache is gone. The photo reminded us of that one time we…

  13. Photo: Is That Gray in Cliff Lee’s Beard?

    It appears to be. And Matt Gelb points out there are some interesting magazines in camp this morning. There is a camera crew from AARP Magazine in Phillies camp today. Seriously. — Matt Gelb (@magelb) February 20, 2013

  14. Like I Said, Don’t Even Bother Trying to Read Charlie Manuel’s Lips

    Jan 30, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/990913.jpg

    This is pretty darn cool. A writer for Baseball Prospectus who is deaf (not the cool part) is adept at lip reading and used his skills to decipher many of the arguments managers in MLB have with umpires. But as the BP writer notes, “only about 35 percent of actual speech is visible on the lips.” And if you’re dealing with a guy like Charlie Manuel, good luck.

  15. Photos: Scott Hartnell Shaves His Lockout Beard

    Jan 12, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/981059.JPG

    The practice of hockey players growing playoff beards is well-known, but Scott Hartnell — who’s no stranger to growing hair for particular causes, like Locks of Love — opted to stop shaving until the NHL Lockout reached its end. These before, during and after photos of the #HartnellBeardDown courtesy the Flyers’ Zack Hill: I mean,…

  16. Bryz Said Hartnell Looked Like Tom Hanks in ‘Cast Away,’ But Yukon Cornelius Seems More Apt

    Jan 9, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/979127.jpg

    Yesterday we showed you video (and a Photoshop) of Ilya Bryzgalov commenting on Scott Hartnell’s free-flowing locks and beard resembling Tom Hanks’ character in “Cast Away,” but today the NBC 10 crew found an even better comparison for Hartnell: Yukon Cornelius from the Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer movie. Pretty close. [video below] Hartsy and fellow…

  17. Video: Scott Hartnell Appears to Be Growing a Dwarf-like Beard in Lieu of Playoff Beard

    Operation Hat Trick took place on Saturday down in Atlantic City and by all accounts was a success. CSN’s Lisa Hillary was down the shore and talked with many of the guys who played in the game. My two favorite responses were Jody Shelley’s and Dan Carcillo when asked about the lockout. Shelley basically said…

  18. Are NHL Lockout Beards the Polar Opposite of Playoff Beards?

    Sep 20, 2012, 10:27 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/891119.jpg

    With the NHL lockout just getting underway with no end in sight, Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell figured they needed a way to keep busy while they weren’t playing hockey games. Naturally, they came up with the idea of growing lockout beards.

  19. The Story Behind Andy Reid’s Yosemite Sam Mustache Revealed

    Sep 18, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/885459.jpg

    Andy Reid has been rocking a pretty fantastic mustache this season on the Philadelphia Eagles sideline. He’s been known to have a normal ‘stache for much of his career, but the tuft on his upper lip this season has grown particularly flowing/awesome. SI’s Peter King got the lowdown on the reason behind the growth.

  20. Jason Kelce Is Wearing a Raccoon Skin Hat…Just Because

    Jason Kelce’s beard has been in the spotlight but now his hat is making waves.

  21. Noted Kings Fan Will Ferrell Uses Visit to National Constitution Center to Mock Flyers

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:43 PM EDT

    Funny men Will Ferrell and Zack Galifianakis were visitors at the National Constitution Center on Tuesday afternoon to add the final and most important signatures to the Declaration of Independence. Wait, not that. They were actually promoting their new movie, The Campaign.

  22. Video: Jason Kelce’s Beard Is a Viking Tribute He Takes VERY Seriously

    Jul 28, 2012, 1:57 AM EDT

    Turns out Jason Kelce’s beard is a tribute to the great Viking warriors of the Middle Ages who “didn’t wear armor because they weren’t scared of swords.” That’s a direct quote.

  23. Marvel at Jaromir Jagr’s Unique Playoff Beard

    Apr 30, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Jaromir Jagr has one of the greyest playoff beards going. It’s not very well groomed, either. But we like it.

  24. Phillies Photo Day: Cliff Lee’s Beard Trumping Doc’s

    Mar 1, 2012, 4:11 PM EDT

    A couple of quick observations from Phillies photo day: Cliff Lee appears to be winning the beard battle among starting pitchers. Dontrelle Willis dominates the hat game. And I think the ladies of Philadelphia are going to like this Laynce Nix fella.

  25. Video: White-bearded Kneeling Sixers Fan Taunts Kobe

    Feb 6, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    With the Lakers leading 88-86 with just less than three minutes to play, Kobe Bryant was whistled for an offensive foul. Mr. Bearded Kneeling Man made sure Kobe knows which end of the court he’s supposed to head to, and Lou Williams would take things over from there. [video below]
