I know I am getting old and grouchy, but it is really beginning to bother me when I watch major league baseball on TV and I can’t see half of the faces of the players on the field. The faces are covered with some of the ugliest beards I have ever seen. Wasn’t Gillette a big sponsor of baseball at one time?
