With another Movember in the books as of last Saturday, it’s time for The 700 Level to take a look back at some of the fine mustaches that adorned the upper-lip areas of your favorite Philadelphia pro athletes. Yes, mostly Flyers are featured. Sorry. A relentless search of the interwebs and social media didn’t produce…

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…

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…

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…
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…

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…

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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…

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…

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

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.

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,…

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…

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…

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.

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.

Jason Kelce’s beard has been in the spotlight but now his hat is making waves.
Jul 31, 2012, 1:43 PM EST
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.
Jul 28, 2012, 1:57 AM EST
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.

Jaromir Jagr has one of the greyest playoff beards going. It’s not very well groomed, either. But we like it.
Mar 1, 2012, 4:11 PM EST
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.

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]
