Shear the Beard!
Keisel ready to Shear the Beard for charity
Shear the beard
D-Day for the beard is almost here! Brett spoke with members of the WDVE Morning Show today and said "it was time for The Diesel to transform back into Brett Keisel."
In typical Keisel-style, he is making sure a worthy cause benefits from the beard shaving extravaganza. All proceeds benefit cancer programs at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC!
Brett and WDVE (along with many sponsors) also made sure fans could take part in the fun. "Shear the Beard" will take place on February 24, 2011 at the Diesel Club Lounge (1601 EAST CARSON STREET-Pittsburgh PA). The doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the "shearing" will commence around 7:00 p.m.
The celebrity barbers are top secret and there will be live entertainment.
You won't want to miss the "Ultimate Mountain Man Makeover" where you will have opportunites to purchase limited edition items, such as a before and after photo of Keisel-which may include a lock of his infamous beard!
The cost to attend this one-of-a-kind event is $25.00. You will be a part of history as you witness the "shearing" and you will be helping a great cause! It's a win-win situation for everyone...well for everyone except "Da Beard".

From Mr. Keisel:
“This is something I thought would be a great way to give back to the City of Pittsburgh and show what Pittsburgh means to me,” said Keisel. “Children’s Hospital has not only helped a lot of people on our team, but it helps Pittsburghers and people from everywhere, every day. It’s a great place that can use some money and I am happy we can help.”-From Steelers.com
You can read the entire Steelers.com article, which talks about whether "Da Beard" will ever return, here.
It's way cool that he's making it such a big event and donating the money to charity. I wish I could be in Pittsburgh for this, we love the south side anyways and hanging out there would be a blast.
Also it's great to hear that he'll be bringing it back in 2011, it's pretty much been his trademark now so he has too..LOL
What kind of scissors do they use to cut locks of steel?

In a related story, Steelers' DE Brett Keisel has dropped 15lbs. in less than 24 hours and 7 new civilizations have been spotted in and around his chin looking for somewhere else to live now.
PETA might want to be on hand to make sure that wonderful specimen
is treated right and given a proper send off. Farewell "Da Beard" may you
grow back soon to fight another day!:yellowthumb::cope:
