And the bearded prize goes too.........

I learned something new today! Did you know that the United States has a team of hairy men representing us worldwide? It's true! Beard Team USA just placed in four out of 17 categories in the World Beard & Moustache Championships. The Freestyle category is by far the most fun! Pretty much anything goes in this category.































Talk about commitment! Some of these guys grow out their facial hair for SIX YEARS to compete! Can you imagine? Backstage before the competition men apply gel and hairspray to their facial hair. Not one hair is out of place! They take this thing seriously! To view more great photos, go to: http://www.time.com/.

I first found out about this when watching Miami Ink. This guy came in about it and he actually got a portrait tattoo done on his back of Hans Langseth (the guy with the longest beard ever) because he was in this competition. Anyway, I didn't know that name off the top of my head, I googled it and you can too. hehehe... Anyway, just thought I'd share. Check that out.
