Some beards, however, just can’t be tamed.
Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson is famous for his shaggy, black beard. It’s been a trademark of his ever since his days as a closer for the World Series-winning San Francisco Giants in 2010. In an effort to gain some publicity, 800razors.com offered Wilson $1 million to shave it off in August.
“If [our razors] can tackle shaving a beard like his, it can work wonders on the average man,” co-founder and president Phillip Masiello said in a press release.
Wilson, however, refused the deal.
