Hockey Hilarity: Banned Beards

Thanks to Film Junk

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more!

A little over a week ago, Claude Giroux sent out a tweet that he and Scott Hartnell would be growing beards during the lockout, presumably until the ban on National Hockey League hockey is lifted. This just further reaffirms the notion that hockey players will grow beards at any given point in time for any reason at all, and it’s awesome.

Here’s what usually, but currently not, professional NHL players Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell, Mike Richards, Matt Read, Paul Bissonette, Ryan Wilson, and James van Riemsdyk had to say to each other, as well as a young man who goes by the twitter handle @28freedie and his attempts to grow a full-fledged face-fro.

Come back next week where we’ll try to do something a little less hairy… but I’m not making any promises.
