Julian Edelman took ten passes on 141 yards on Sunday to lead the New England Patriots to another Super Bowl win, earning him an MVP honor.
But it was the beard of the broad outside that perhaps stood out most during an otherwise extremely boring game, the dullness of which was only surpassed by Maroon's faint, half-time show.
The whiskers he has grown for the Pats' last two Super Bowl bids are really something to look at – the kind of beard you could grow when you're in California in the 1850s wanted to dig for gold or just opened a craft brewery in the Midwest.
The power of his beard was so powerful that he not only achieved MVP status, but also troubled NFL-sized Deion Sanders, who practically implored Edelman to shave the Dang thing during an interview before the big game.
"I just can not see you with this beard," Neon Deion said on the NFL network. "This beard does me something. I'm so sorry. I'm just everything ̵
Granted, the beard looks pretty nasty in the heat, its outgrowth spilling out of the cage of his helmet but at the press conference after the game it looked better at least than it was at least washed and combed.
It is unclear whether he will keep the bristles, but it seems likely he will shave, just like last year, after his Pats lost to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Asked by Sanders if he would shave it this year if the Pats win, he said somehow he would simply answer, "I gotchu."
Here are some shaving tips in case your Beard gets a bit wild:
- To tame the unruly beard before it gets full with the Edward Scissorhands, use a facial scrub (like Kiehl) Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub) to exfoliate your cup and prepare for a close shave ,
- Before you say goodbye to these whiskers, give them a little love by sending out a nutritious beard oil to soften your skin follicles. The Lab Series offers an excellent option with sea buckthorn oil, jojoba oil and sweet almond oil to moisturize the skin and prepare for a close shave.
- Your washbasin looks like you're giving a haircut to a savage animal, so it helps to put away some towels or even that helpful beard mat.
- Grab your walker tool and start cutting it down so as not to overtax the shaver when shaving. It took time to grow this beard, and it will take a moment to crush it.
- Use a premium shaving cream and start giving it a clean face. Take your time, this is not a race against the clock.
- After overcoming the shock of seeing your face before the beast, apply some aftershave and moisten it with a rich facial lotion, and BAM lets you go with a smooth face without cuts and cuts.
