Off With Their Beards.

Baseball players are among the most superstitious people you'll ever meet. Diehard fans can be superstitious, too. That's why I've been growing a beard along with the Houston Astros players.

After two tough (unlucky?) losses against the Chicago White Sox, the Astros are eschewing their beards in favor of goatees.

So I tried doing that, too, the goatee thing. I had one briefly when I was 15 or so. But this time around it just looked silly, with my symmetrical patches of bare skin below and to the left and right of my mouth. So I shaved the whole thing off.

Here's to better luck against the White Sox in Games 3, 4, 5, and 6. Clean-shaven, woo!

Cleanshaven's the way to go. Trust me, it'll bring a win on Tuesday. Maybe not the series, though. The sun is seeming to follow Chicago around.

Giacomo, Will of WILLisms.com needs to be told to shave his beard too!... GO ASTROS!...

That never looks good on a ballplayer, I think. Hockey players, however, look perfect. It's just a hockey thing to do.
