Put me in coach, I'm ready to grow.
When I was in the seventh grade, shaving was the dream. I had a stiff upper lip, but little hair on it, so I was out of luck.
One by one my older friends began the whisker disappearing act and although the thorns on my chinny, chin chin were few in numbers, by grade eight I was ready to put razor to face as well.
It’s funny how something I once desired so badly is now the enemy.
Razors aside, it’s time to start the transformation from clean shaven to hairy, smooth to gruff, regular season to playoffs.
Canucks.com reporter Derek Jory is sacrificing his face for the greater good as the Jory Beard returns for another Vancouver Canucks playoff run. As it is every season, a ZZ Top chin carpet is the goal, but this year the inspiration is Zach Galifianakis, the bearded one from The Hangover.
It's no fun growing a beard alone, so he's pinning his whiskers up against a familiar foe, none other than Tweety Bird, a Tweety Bird Chia Pet to be exact.
