PLAYOFF GRAMMAR for October 27, 2010

I hate the Giants. Yes, I'm bitter. And yes, I realize it was my own damn team's fault for completely forgetting how to hit during the NLCS, but dammit, I'm still bitter.

Not only do I hate the Giants, but I also hate the following: grammar screw-ups and facial hair. I am really not a fan of beards in general (that's ANY beards, not just those on members of rival teams--for example, my appreciation of Jayson Werth went downhill when that small animal crawled onto his face at the beginning of the season and died there). The above article has all three of those things I loathe.

This writer should have said "dyeing" instead of "dying." Although the two words are frequently confused, "dying" really has nothing to do with hair color. I know "dyeing" looks awkward, but really, it's right!

Anyway, I hope the breathtakingly gorgeous very talented Lee, CJ Wilson, Hamilton, Young, and Kinsler kick the crap out of the Giants and their stupid beards. Let's go, Rangers!

I like facial hair if it works on the man. Unfortunately, there are a lot of men who try it and it does NOT work on them. Like this man here.

Oh yeah, right, he doesn't dye his beard! Who is he kidding! GO, RANGERS!!!

Sorry, Phillies.

GO RANGERS! It has been CRAZY here in DFW. The day after the rangers secured their trip to the World Series, EVERYONE was sporting their rangers gear. (Okay, maybe not everyone. But no joke, prob 70% of everyone.)

@ Bridgete: That hairy thing looks glued to his face. It's sooooo gross!

I can deal with some small amounts of facial hair. Chase Utley's little soul patch thing that he has sometimes. Roy Halladay's side-of-the-face scruff. And sideburns--especially on baseball players--are always hot in my opinion, unless they're of the Mike Fontenot variety (ie HUGE). Well-groomed facial hair (and, IMHO, in moderation) can be cute. But stuff like this beard phase the Giants are going through, creepy mustaches like Carl Pavano's, etc...ick. Why do otherwise attractive men feel compelled to do this crazy stuff??? :)

@ MarieC: Go Rangers, indeed! Let's hope that tonight CJ Wilson kicks some Giant butt...

@ Cole: That's awesome! I'm glad the Rangers are getting so much love! :) I hope they forget all about last night's crappy game and that they go on to win the whole damn thing!

Oh, well, yes, big ol' bushy beards like this thing just don't work. They look like they should be living in a cabin somewhere in the Rockies. ;) But even a goatee doesn't work if it doesn't suit the man's face.

That big ol' beard will in reeeeeeeeeal close proximity to a finger that will soon be sporting a World Series ring. :( *sniffle*
