Acid Flashback Friday: Dustin McGowan’s Sideburns
The benefit of a quick week is yet another Acid Flashback Friday! Today, we take a trip down memory lane from just a few years ago to recognize two of the best groomed pillars in Blue Jays history, Dustin McGowan’s sideburns.
Now I know that that Dusty’s chops don’t necessarily qualify as “flashback”, but it seems like it has been a few years since they have made an appearance. I also figured it would be pertinent considering that McGowan is throwing off a mound today.
Being a self-appointed aficionado of baseball facial hair, once can’t help but marvel at the sheer size and shape of Dustin McGowan’s sideburns. I mean, those things rival Ozzie Smiths’ sideburns from the late 70’s.
I scoff at Joe Mauer’s pathetic attempt at so-called “sideburns”. Come on Joe, those things need to go at least past your ears to qualify as true sideburns.
We wish Dusty all the best in his mound session today, and hopefully we can see his chops back at the Major League level in the near future.
