Great success!

The 3rd Paul Mara Playoff Beard Competition is now officially closed for entries. Thanks to all who sent in your gorgeous, adorable, hilarious, confusing (Manny?), and clean shaven “before” pics! In the next few days I’ll be posting the photos, as well as announcing some of the prizes.

In the meantime, here’s Puck Daddy’s Guide to 2012 Stanley Cup Scruff, in which we learn Shea Weber’s beard is the kind “so dark and terrifying that you would not want to meet in a dark alley.” Well, duh

Finally, a huge MAZEL TOV to our heroes, the New York Rangers, on their glorious victory over the Ottawa Senators. 15 more to go!


Last Chance to Enter Contest

Today is your last day to enter The 3rd Sometimes Annual Paul Mara Tribute Rabies Awareness Playoff Beard Contest and Picnic Extravaganza!!! Get ’em in before puck drop tonight folks (7:00EST), or it’ll be too late.

Once again, folks of any age, shape, or intergalactic origin are encouraged to enter. The Zetterburger does not discriminate. Your ability to win this contest will be based solely on your ability to win this contest. If nobody wins I will flip a coin or give all the prizes to Carp.

Playoff Beard Competition!


3rd Sometimes-Annual Paul Mara Playoff Beard Competition!

Thanks to the ever-awesome Carp at Rangers Report, it’s happening HERE, folks. There will be itchy faces, prizes, and trash-talking GALORE!

If you would like to enter, email your “before” pictures to The deadline for entries is at puck drop for the Rangers’ first playoff game. One entry per person, unless you’re a two-faced, bush-league clown. Winners will be chosen by majority vote after the Rangers win the Cup or, god-forbid, are eliminated from the playoffs.

Lets do this thing.
