Brian Wilson, man of principle? Kinda, sort of, maybe? Wilson was reportedly offered at least $1 million by a razor company to shave off his infamous beard, apparently rat tail and all. That's just a tad more than the $10,000 Joe Namath received for shaving off his mustache for a TV commercial. But it is not happening, or that's the word that Wilson's representatives passed on to TMZ : “The crew over at MVP Sports Group tells us they never took the razor company's offer seriously because Brian refuses to even trim his trademark, and, in fact ... he's told them the beard is 'going with him to the grave.'” If he refuses to even trim it, pretty soon he's going to have to start putting it in pigtails to prevent it flying up and blocking his view of the plate.

A couple of weeks ago, David Beckham was holding forth in the Galaxy locker room after a victory over the Chicago Fire when the conversation got around to the beard he was sporting. Was it a disguise to allow him to slip into Ukraine unnoticed with the rest of England's national team? "No," Beckham said. "I just got lazy. It'll probably be gone tomorrow." Hair today, gone tomorrow? No way. By the next day, it wasn't gone. The beard accompanied Beckham to Europe for England's World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Belarus.

World Series MVP David Ortiz needed encouragement to keep from shaving his beard this season. Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino struggled just to grow his. Neither of them had a problem with ridding themselves of the facial hair Monday during a charity event to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. The so-called shave-off was sponsored by Gillette, which donated $100,000 to the One Fund. Bushy beards became a signature look for the champs this year after outfielder Jonny Gomes and first baseman Mike Napoli encouraged the rest of the team to stop shaving during spring training and throughout the season.

One of the most noticeable men's trends at Sunday night's 2013 Golden Globes was the abundance of facial hair, from presenter Jeremy Renner's barely there smudge of a 'stache to Bill Murray's full-walrus mustache with connected sideburns. Some of the other bearded and mustachioed men in attendance were producers Grant Heslov and Judd Apatow, actors Jason Statham and Will Ferrell and, if you include Bradley Cooper's scruffy visage, all five nominees for lead actor in a comedy or musical film, with facial fuzz gracing the grizzled chins of Ewan McGregor, Jack Black, Bill Murray and winner Hugh Jackman.

EL PASO - A military hearing leading up to the murder trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist charged in the Fort Hood shooting rampage , was delayed Friday after Hasan showed up in court with a beard. Col. Gregory Gross, the trial judge, said Hasan's facial hair - captured by a sketch artist during his appearance Friday at the Texas base's Lawrence J. Williams Judicial Center - violated Army regulations and “was a disruption to the court proceedings,” according to a statement released Friday by Fort Hood public affairs.
