Look at my luxurious beard

Since the dawn of Man there have been beards (actually back then we were pretty much covered in beard). Then one day we invented cutting utensils and thought “Hey, let’s use this sharp stuff to carve weird designs into our beards” and we did. In fact we’ve carved a shitload of strange things onto our faces in the name of it being fashionable and, I’m not gonna lie, as a culture we haven’t always made the greatest decisions when it came to facial hair.

Take The Van Buren for example:

Or whatever the hell this thing is…I don’t know, a Face Rat-Tail?

Yes, we’ve made some pretty terrible decisions in the history of facial hair. Thankfully we live in a time where full, robust beards and mustaches are considered dead sexy, and I for one am honored to be a part of this era. We are in a golden age of beardism and luckily the folks at Just for Men agree. That’s why they’ve invented a brand new sport called #Beardspotting!

Led by New York sports legends and rhyming duo Keith Hernandez and Clyde “Walt” Frazier, the contest invites people to upload their best beard and mustache photos for a chance to win prizes. From September 8 to September 30, you – dear beardo – can enter by uploading photos of your beards or mustaches on Beardspotting.com to compete for the title of “Best Beard Ever.” Keith and Clyde will provide “color commentary” and announce the winner on October 15, via Beardspotting.com and the brand’s social channels. You can win an all-expense-paid weekend trip for two to New York City in November to join the judging panel at the Just For Men Beard & Moustache Championships in Brooklyn.

So there you have gentleman. The sport your face has been waiting for ever since you hit puberty is upon us. Go to Beardspotting.com and let the games begin!

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
