Not that long ago, I shared a picture of Mike Brown’s beard that made me think, HOLY SMOKES THAT IS A GIGANTIC BEARD, because…wow, right? It was, and is, impressive.

The middle phases, with the awesome (unwashed?) hair are only outdone by the bald/beard contrast towards the end.

Brown is growing it for charity (prostate cancer, more on that here), and will be shaving it soon. Definitely before the start of the next NHL season, but of course…that could mean anything. Check out how things got to where they’re at today:
