For a mega-payroll juggernaut that plays in a sophisticated Northeastern city renowned as a global center of education, the Boston Red Sox oddly love to adopt low-brow personae. In recent post-season runs we’ve known them as “Idiots” and watched them “Cowboy Up”, but 2013’s squad may take the cake with its epic display of facial hair. #GetBeard!
Hockey teams sport playoff beards that grow progressively scragglier during pursuit of the Cup, but the Sox have cultivated whiskers all year long and they're peaking (both in game-play and facial hirsuteness) just in time for the postseason. Gomes, Pedroia, Big Papi, Napoli, Salty, Bucholz et. al. each have their own look (and unique names for the styles). Do these mythic bristles serve as a rallying point, a fashion statement, a marketing device, an October cheek-warmer, voo-doo talismans…?
We don’t know, but the team and the fans love them – and now you can wear your own without the need for a testosterone injection! This fun new design captures the gritty feel of this classic team, the tradition of the great game and a “flavah” of the local dialect with your choice of three mottos: #GetBeard, Beard Strong, or SAWKS!

Like all National Fanthem designs, it is not an official product of any player, league, franchise or grooming product -- it's just a comical piece of unique art from our imagination. It's available on navy, red or sport grey pre-shrunk cotton tees in sizes small through 5XL. (Alternate brands/cuts/colors/sizes can be custom-printed for little additional cost
