The Locker Room: Hal Hunter
This morning I awoke to a NewNowNext story entitled “Beards Keep You Young, Healthy & Handsome, Says Science“. As a bearded man who wants to be all of those things, this sounded like great news until I read the article and realized that it was all pretty common sense stuff about how UV rays won’t age your face so fast if you’ve got a beard, and how beards are good for asthma victims because all the environmental stuff that would normally go up your nose can get trapped in your beard instead.
That’s fine. But you know what else is fine? The man they selected to illustrate this post. His name is Hal Hunter, and he’s a 19-year old Australian football player. What is Australian football, you ask? I don’t know, actually, except that it’s a full-contact sport that seems to be like regular football only with skimpy, unpadded uniforms. Which sounds dangerous but also really hot.
Here are some photos of Hal Hunter to brighten your day.
