Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman has said goodbye to his beard.
The Patriots wide receiver was a guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in Los Angeles. While there, Ellen talked him into shaving his MVP beard for charity. Ellen DeGeneres said she would donate $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Boston if Edelman would let her do the honors.
Edelman, who was very attached to his beard, not only agreed but also offered to match Ellen’s donation. DeGeneres proceeded to shave off the beard with an electric razor in a makeshift barbershop on set.
“I love you, beard,” Edelman said. “It’s been a hell of a year.”
Two-and-a-half minutes later, his face was clean shaven and it turns out Edelman’s pretty good looking under all that scruff!

After more than 40 years, Big League Chew bubble gum for baseball players has finally made a change to honor women. That’s right. A female softball player.
The female character was created by Amanda MacFarlane, a freelance character designer, who also happens to be the daughter of former Major League shortstop Bobby Bonner. She drew inspiration from her niece who plays softball so this character will represent the many softballers.
Up until now, the brand could always be identified by the caricature of a very muscular male baseball player ready to swing, slide or even intimidate opponents with his mean looking features. The plan to feature a softball player on the front of Big League Chew has been in the works for many years.
The new softball line is already available online and is expected to roll out to other retailers in late spring. And in case you were wondering, the female softball player sketch will not replace the male character completely but will be batting right along side him in stores.
