I recently started dating this guy and he is a huge hockey fan. He actually got me to watch a playoff game last night and I admit, I got into it.

Today he explained what a "playoff beard" is and that he is going to grow one.

A "playoff beard" is where the hockey players on all the teams that are in the playoff grow a beard and only shave it if they win or are eliminate. His favorite team is in the playoffs so He's going to grow one also.

Anyone else's so or DH do this?

Its pretty normal for Hockey fans. Most of the guys in my family do it. SO doesn't though. He's just not a sports guy.

I'm supposed to be rooting for the penguins. They blew the islanders away last night!

IMO, everyone who lives in Pittsburgh should know what a playoff beard is since we are always in the playoffs.  Yes, it is totally normal in da burgh, not sure about the rest of the world though.

Thank you! This is a new thing for me, I've never been into sports and neither was my ex. I'm digging it though.

We both enjoy hockey as well but nope, no playoff beard - first time I've ever heard of it.

He doesn't like hockey, but I do. I can't grow a beard though.

Yup Dh is a HUGE NHL fan. He is at the Capitals game right now and yes... i have to endure the playoff beard. I secretly wish for them to lose even though i know it will put him in a super bad mood. Im just so over hockey and ready for football season.
