Talking about Don Mattingly’s goatee is no longer any fun

Don Mattingly’s goatee was amusing for a brief moment earlier this week, but now the topic is just kind of sad.

Mattingly said initially that he planned to keep the goatee until the Dodgers stopped winning most of their games and later reiterated that plan, saying he’d keep it against his wife’s wishes.

And then he almost immediately shaved it while revealing that the actual reason he grew the goatee in the first place had little to do with the Dodgers or winning or his wife.

According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times:

Mattingly shaved his goatee. Said he grew it because he had a cold sore on the left side of his lip.

And … we’re done talking about this.

    Holy buzz kill. When I broke my leg falling over my dog with my foot in a gopher hole I told everyone it was from fighting a shark for a prize marlin I had on a line. Mattingly gets a fail in the tall story department. What kind of baseball guy can’t tell a good story anyways? Cold sore. Sheesh….
