It’s $1 beard night at Fenway — feel the magic

Sep 18, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT


Usually cutesy little things don’t get played out until the playoffs actually start. The Red Sox are trying to get the jump on all of that, though:  It’s $1 beard night at Fenway.

Seriously: wear a beard to Fenway park tonight — real or fake — and you could get to see the Red Sox game for just a dollar. It’s a “while supplies last” thing, so I imagine it’s only for the handful of walkup tickets available.

Of course, given that beards are magic and make teams win you’d think the Sox would evict all of the clean-shaven season ticket holders and let Jonny Gomes‘ spiritual relatives all come into the park. But hey, maybe they just aren’t as hip to this strategy as Boston radio hosts are.

    At first gland I thought this said $1 beer night and got all excited at the eventual hilarity that would have ensued. Then I read the article. Guess it’s just been a long day and my brain was already onto my post work relaxation.

      No, admission is $1. The beer is free to anyone with a real beard longer than 7 inches. But I predict things will get messy by the 6th inning with bearded people being thrown onto the field, particularly the rowdier Hasidim, and then the game will be forfeited amid charges of anti-Semitism and hatred of lumberjacks and misogyny over women not getting the free beer. Heads will roll. Everyone will blame Bill Veeck.

        They’ll get thrown onto the field after John Cleese accuses them of uttering the name of our lord.

        Sabatimus, I have Brian’s sandal and I wear it proudly on a chain around my neck so no one will confuse me with followers of that other chap.

      I actually read it as $1 bread night and got really hungry…

    Can gay guys who have fake girlfriends also get in for $1?

      Oh, for God’s sake, just buy a cheap beard to wear. The Halloween stuff is out at the stores already….unless you’re asking me to be your fake gf.

    I’d wear a beard just for the halibut.

    Hey, is that Kurt Suzuki in the background?

    The pennant races don’t truly begin until Craig’s annual “I’m gonna poo-poo every team’s chemistry gimmick” posts hit the internet. If it’s not bourbon, Batman, or Braves, he has no time for your fun.

    Beards: growing personalities
