A beard to be feared?

It’s Opening Day, and we are about 10 minutes away from Clayton Kershaw throw the first pitch of the Dodgers’ season. LA will be up against the—ugh—defending champion Giants, who will be missing their oddball closer, Brian Wilson, and his shoe-polish-dyed beard.

Beards, including mine, which has superpowers, are a frequent subject of this blog. (The word “beard” appears in at least 40 posts.) But I don’t think that batters fear the beard of Brian Wilson for the same reason that, say, Fatah members fear the Hamas beard in the Gaza Strip.
