And so, since Davey Johnson told reporters Friday afternoon that he wouldn't shave until the Nats start hitting, we figured we might as well start a "Davey Johnson Shave Watch" as a public service until Davey finally shaves.
"I figured [the face] couldn't get any uglier, so what the heck. Hopefully, I can shave soon." (Davey Johnson, via Nationals.com, 5/24/2013)
Screencap above (via this CSNWashington.com video) of a scruffy Davey after Friday night's 5-2 Nats win over the Phillies. Were those 5 runs and 10 hits last night enough to make Davey pick up a razor? Guess we'll find out soon...
[UPDATE] Via James Wagner of the Washington Post prior to Saturday night's game, Davey's beard will stick around at least one more day:
Pressing Davey beard watch update: he says his wife has allowed him to keep the fuzz a day longer. "The players want me to keep it."— James Wagner (@JamesWagnerWP) May 25, 2013
And then there was this:
Davey kept his beard. Tried to make a Keith Hernandez "Just for Men" joke. "Might have to call up Hernandez & use 'Just Grey' or something."— Dan Kolko (@masnKolko) May 25, 2013
