On a sidenote, can 2006 officially be labeled "The year of facial hair" in sports? Think about it. Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger (and yes, I had to look up the correct spelling) and his goofy beard started off the calendar year by leading the Steelers to the Super Bowl in February. Then, Gonzaga's Adam Morrison and his schoolboy mustache dominated headlines for much of the college basketball season in to March. Next, sports fans turned to the NBA, which is simply a gold mine for unusual facial hair (start with Phil Jackson's soul patch and go from there). And finally, that brings us to baseball. I'll keep an eye on the situation, but let's just say Randy Johnson winning the Cy Young and Fasano being named MVP wouldn't surprise this blogger.
