As I mentioned previously, there was a lot riding on the World Series. The governor of Massachusetts had wagered a whole crabload of lobster and New England folk had about $15 million worth of furniture on the line.
But after my Boston Red Sox cut down the Colorado Rockies with some razor-sharp baseball, it was my roommate Steve who may have lost the most. At least in the facial hair department.
As promised, Steve lopped off half his beard and sported it in public today.
I'll take it.
