It’s official, we are all growing beards.  This is what L1C4 is all about right?

Facial hair?  Sure.

Jack Bauer, super agent bad ass from the former hit show 24, sums it up best “L1C4 means I am willing to do whatever is necessary”.  Pretty sure he said the L1C4 part.  Just trust me for now.

Rick Pitino said the beard is necessary, and now he is asking the community to join in. Technically he asked the media, but you get where I am going.  He didn’t ask, but yes he is asking.

Wikipedia tells us

A beard is the collection of hair that grows on the chin, upper lip, cheeks and neck of human beings and some non-human animals. In humans, usually only pubescent or adult males are able to grow beards. However, women with hirsutism may develop a beard. When differentiating between upper and lower facial hair, a beard specifically excludes the moustache.

Whoa. Sexual virility, masculinity, or a higher status?  I am in.

Pretty hard to turn down those fine qualities. Now that you have made you decision to grow a beard, you have come the realization that you can’t just “grow a beard”.

You need to have a plan. Here is a guide to help you on your journey

Creepy, I flash a Gandalf photo and this guy shows up.

Keep an eye on those trolls.


Imagine twenty-two thousand people screaming in the YUM! just like this guy.

I don’t care who we play, they will be scared to death.

Go Beards. #L1B4
