UPDATED: Dallas Cowboys’ Travis Frederick shaved beard for sake of barbecue
It was an important mission.
If you had a beard as epic as Travis Frederick’s, would you shave it off? No? Yeah, I didn’t think so. He’s like an oversized Gimli with all that hair on his chin, so why cut it? What if he’s like Samson, and that hair is secretly his source of power?
But when asked about Texas BBQ, Frederick said in an interview, “I’d say brisket is probably my favorite. Ribs are also delicious. The problem with the ribs is they get all in your beard and everything. It takes too much work to keep yourself clean.”
I think you’ve missed the great potential for saving food for later, man.
Nevertheless, Frederick plans to shave the beard on May 30. To his credit, he’s at least giving the facial hair a ceremonious send-off. The shaving of the beard will happen on The Ben and Skin Show from 105.3 The Fan at 3 Stacks Smoke and Tap House. The execution – I mean, the shaving, will be carried out by Floyd’s 99 Barber Shop. After he’s parted with his better half, Frederick will get a “Texas-sized BBQ meal” from 3 Stacks.
For more bearded goodness:
You’re selling your soul for too little, Travis. Turn back! Turn baaaaaaack!
The event will happen May 30 from 4:30 – 5 p.m. at 3 Stacks Smoke & Tap House, located at 4226 Preston Road in Frisco, 75034. May God have mercy on the beard.
UPDATE: And there went his fine face fur:
