Fear the Beard

Halloween was yesterday.  I saw a lot of ridiculousness from young and old.  From what I observed, costumes imitating the cast from Duck Dynasty were some of the most popular this year.

Most folks had to slap some goofy-looking fake beard on their faces to imitate Willie, Jase, Phil, or good ole Uncle Si.

Any respectable baseball fan knows that the Boston Red Sox just won the World Series this week.  Beards that the Red Sox players had grown for the entire year were responsible in no small part for the unbelievable season that team had this year.

Clearly, there is power in the beard.


Winter is coming.  Better get the ice-fishing gear ready, and you better start growing that beard!

Have a great weekend everybody; make sure to grab the bow, grab the shotgun, grab the fishing rod, get out there and enjoy Nebraska’s great outdoors!  If you are able to do it with a beard on your face, I am betting you will be even more successful and no doubt will look better doing it!
