Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell are Growing Lockout Beards… and Mike Richards Wants to Play Too

Thanks, Gary Bettman!

Since beards are never not cool, and growing them to absurd lengths is an automatic marketing tool for any athlete (notice how no one hated Jason Kelce this year, even though he was vilified for comments about fans last year?), Giroux and Hartnell have decided to partake in the time honored tradition… the lockout beard:

I know, I know– beards have totally jumped the shark. But who cares? It’s not like we have anything better to write about, hockeywise. I mean, it would be better to grow a playoff beard, rather than a lockout beard, but that’s not an option right now, is it?

It was, however, an option this past spring for Stanley Cup champion Mike Richards, who wants to join his former teammates:

Well now– that just took all the fun out of it. What does this look like, Kings East? Why don’t we just invite Justin Williams to impromptu practices, too. Oh.

    i can see there being a white powderly substance on richards beard

  2. Given how entrenched and stubborn the players and the owners are at present, Giroux and Hartnell will look like Dusty Hill and Billy Gibbons (Google ZZ Top) before it’s all said and done.

  3. I still dislike Jason Kelce. Total Tool

  4. cool story

  5. Heard Lisa Hillary will not be shaving down her bush either.

  6. Wah Richards won the Cup wah – Kyle

  7. If you smell Richards beard, you will get coked up & smell pussy

  8. I bet these faggots also say beast mode too

  9. Think Carts & Richie will hang out with Eatdatpussy445 in Bakersfield CA during the lockout?

  10. I still hate Kelce also. In fact his stupid beard makes me think he’s more of a douche.
