Since the Yankees are not in the World Series this year, my allegiance shifts to the San Francisco Giants. And, yes, while I may be a fair-weather baseball friend, I am willing to go to bat for my new favorite team, at least through this series. What better way to show my support than to “beardify” my Facebook photo with the Brian Wilson Beardifier app? (You can become a fan of his beard on Facebook too).
Brian Wilson is the Giants relief pitcher with the 95 mph fastball and pitch-black beard. He intimidates his opponents, who have learned to “fear the beard.”
And now you can intimidate all your friends by spreading the fear and Brian Wilson’s beard on Facebook. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take over your profile pic for every status update, unless you upload it as your new pic. It’s not quite the same as turning your Twitter avatar green last year to support democracy in Iran, but it is probably just as effective.
