Grow One for the Cause

Posted by Dave Nichols | Tuesday, April 07, 2009 | , , | 0 comments »

There's a tradition in hockey that players start growing a "playoff beard" as soon as their team qualifies for the playoffs. It's a symbol of unity and support for your teammates. The Caps (and other NHL teams) are taking the tradition one step further…asking fans, front office staff and media members to participate as well for charity.

The Washington Capitals "Beard-a-thon" benefits Caps Care, the team's non-profit arm.

You can learn more about Caps Care at this link.

You can check out my progress, and check out the other participants as well at the main page.

Any excuse to grow a beard is a good one for me, but this one helps others too! Plus, I already have a head start!

Thanks for your support, and ROCK THE RED (BEARD)!!!
