Sparty Has a Beard!
I graduated from Michigan State University and am a big MSU fan, so I was very excited to see them win on Saturday against Michigan. (Although my two best friends went to U of M, so I do have some appreciation for the school.) While rooting for my school to win, I couldn’t help but notice the bearded Sparty on the field. Could it be real: Sparty is sporting a hipster beard?
As it turns out, Sparty was supposed to be dressed as Paul Bunyan, to take home the Paul Bunyan trophy after a win. So, not quite the hipster beard reasoning, but the outfit was eye-catching nonetheless and one of the highlights of the game, at least for me.
If you missed it, Chris Monroe put together this funny video asking people around the studio who was going to win the MSU vs. U of M game. Check it out here!
