Thank You, Blackhawks: My Stanley Cup Debearding

What a night. What a game! What a great weekend (summer?) of celebrating to come. I love that Captain Serious is still out and about in the city as of this moment, shaking hands and signing autographs with seemingly anyone and everyone. I believe you're going to see a lot of that around Chicago over the next few months, plus some random Stanley Cup sightings in who-da-thunk-it locations. The hierarchy of the five major sports teams in town has definitely changed; I won't dare rank the five now, but it's safe to say the Blackhawks no longer occupy the cellar, nor will they for a long time.

But seriousness will be for our Captain and another blog entry. my debearding.

Ah, the Beardmen. Somewhere around Day 39, when I realized that Survivor contestants go this long without shaving only if they've got a shot at a million bucks, I thought "Hey, this sorta itches."

I didn't stop thinking that until a couple minutes ago. But the ride was worth it. If you've still got a playoff beard on your face (or any other extraneous playoff hockey-related growth that I really don't want to know about), please use the following pics as a how-to guide to get rid of the fuzz without too much fuss.
