Design Youk's Facial Hair And Help Some Kids

↵

↵Perhaps this is something Zach Galifianakis should have done before he took a razor to his signature beard on Saturday during his appearance on SNL. That beard was central to his identity and he wiped most of it out like it was nothing. ↵

↵Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis understands the value of facial hair. He's allowing fans to vote on one of four facial hair designs he could sport on Opening Day against the Yankees. There's his usual goatee, the Magnum P.I. mustache, the clean shaven look that is bizarre and bound to lose and the Fu Manchu (which would copy the Youk Manchu he grew last year for his official photo). A little limiting, if you ask me. Huge mutton chops and a soul patch deserve a right to compete. ↵

↵Of course, frivolity can't exist for frivolity's sake, so there is a charity element to all this. In order to vote, a $1 donation has to be made to Youk's charity, Hits for Kids, which describes itself as "dedicated to rallying local and corporate support for charities and organizations focused on the health and wellbeing of children". Essentially, it's a charity for charities. Good to know. Either way, you're doing somebody some good and you potentially get to make a ballplayer look ridiculous. ↵
