I asked all the straight women and gay guys in our building today about facial hair. "Do you like the trend of millenials growning big ZZ Top beards?" Most of them thought it was a little overdone. When the NBC sports guy said NHL players should stop the playoff facial hair tradition to become more marketable, I thought it was a little overdone. These kids are from Canada and Russia. I've been to both countries. It's friggin' cold there. A little insulation is a good thing when you are in Yellowknife or Norilsk pushing a puck on a frozen pond.

What about the parital beard? Goatees & mustaches are a tad more rare these days. Except in Movember. Or when the Beasties are drivin' and divin.'
