Tiger Woods Tossed All Gillette Products Out Window, Going With the Beard
You all remember that infamous Gillette commercial with Tiger Woods, Derek Jeter and Roger Federer? Well, of course you do, it goes down as one of the biggest "dorks trying to act like cool guys" moments in the history of celebritianism.
I guess since Tiger and Gillette parted ways, he's decided facial hair is in, and smooth sailing is out (I gotta admit, I also agree by that theory, but mostly because shaving sucks).
Tiger spoke at his press conference on Tuesday at his tournament, the AT&T National, and rocked a full beard, the first time I've ever seen him do this. Sure, he's gone goatee, and I even remember him frosting his tips for a National Championship game a few years back (side note: please don't ever frost your tips. Ever. It's the "girl's belly-button ring" of male looks.), but the full beard is a first.
I honestly think he looks a little like a villain, but then again, maybe that's what he's going for. Maybe with all the chatter about Rory McIlroy being the next in line to take over the game, Tiger's decided to look a little darker and go all LeBron on us. If he does that, good for him. Maybe a change of look is in the cards for Mr. Woods.
What are your thoughts on the beard?
