To some people big messy facial hair is something to laugh and poke fun at; to others it can be considered artwork. As a man who can grow some decent facial hair I understand the time and effort that needs to be put in to grow a respectable cheek rug. After doing some extensive research I have come up with a list of the Picasso’s of facial hair throughout the sports world. Enjoy the pure beauty these men have on their faces.

I understand that there are countless athletes sporting some chin curtains or even a mouth brow (not to be mistaken with eye brow) that I have forgotten so feel free to comment on anyone who you feel was left out. If this list of masterpieces didn’t tickle your fancy than contact Sahli, a Thunder Treats contributor, his Struthers high school yearbook is dripping with brutal facial hair.
