Guys, there's a sport that we could all be pros at - beard growing! People are actually entering their facial hair into contests, and now there's a show about it too: http://youtu.be/qnye24xzlmM

Do you have what it takes?!

I know plenty of guys who couldn't even reach whatever the Cat-5 equivalent status is for growing facial hair. A couple scrubby patches of scraggly hairs does not equal an epic beard.

I chop my beard off for the summer months and rock some awesome handlebars.

Personally, I'm on a little red tricycle when it comes to beard-growing, so I'll leave that to the pros.
