The day before the LA Kings started this post Olympic Break streak, I decided not to shave. A day of lazy turned into five and, boom, the beard was in damn fine bloom.
The wife shook her head and declared she wanted her smooth faced husband back. She doesn’t like facial hair. She tolerates it.
I said okay and would shave it. The clipper stopped working (needed it trimmed before I could get the razor on it) and got too busy to care.
More days passed and the Kings kept winning.
Yesterday she says, “the Kings haven’t lost since you grew that thing”
Me: “I am not superstitious”
Her: “oh yeah? Then shave it”
A challenge. A “the hell you aren’t!”
I could have shaved it this morning. I choose not to and it had nothing to do with any superstition. It also won’t have anything to do with the team if I choose not to shave it tomorrow…if the Kings win.
I am not superstitious.
This is your open forum for tonight’s game.
