Ahead of his game today, we start this blog with Everton and USA goalkeeper Tim Howard, as it was him and his sizeable beard that was the seed of BeardWatch.
Tim Howard has flirted with facial hair for a while:
But now a massive beard seems to have snuck up on me, I can’t say I’d noticed it until he claimed it gave him strength to save a penalty.
It’s also spawned an inevitable parody twitter account.
While it’s clearly bushy and brilliant, the lack of sideys slightly disturbs me and makes it look a bit stuck on.
