If you are a fan of the NFL than you are probably familiar with Pittsburg Steelers’ Brett Keisel, the defensive end that was featured several times during the Super Bowl because of his trademark beard.
But now, he may not be as easily recognizable.
Yesterday Keisel took part in a charity event benefitting Pittsburgh’s Children’s Hospital, in which he agreed to shave off his eight month old beard.
Although it wasn’t easy for Keisel to say goodbye, his fellow teammates had more than enough fun with it. Teammates Hines Ward and Aaron Smith had a big grin on their face as they helped cut part of Keisel’s beard off.
After Ward and Smith had their fun, the rest of Keisel’s beard was removed by a barber.
The event ended up raising more than $30,000 for the Children’s Hospital…but with did Keisel have to say about all this? “I feel naked. I feel like I’m 15” (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Brett-Keisel-shaves-his-beard-for-charity?urn=nfl-326394).
Will Keisel grow his beard back? According to him, when the right time comes it will reappear.
