Iker Casillas: Beard Psychology
Well, it’s probably about time that we addressed this issue: Iker Casillas’s beard.
We’ve found ourselves becoming increasingly concerned with the psychological aspects of the situation.
We all remember David Beckham’s horror show. Xabi Alonso nearly reached these levels a few months ago.
What’s the common denominator? Mental anguish over their career/club/life? Being too damn attractive and needing to take a hot-break? Is our long-time F5 numero uno undergoing some sort of life crisis?
We reached out to some of the men in our lives to get their take on what’s really going on when a man just can’t be bothered:
“Probably not what you want to hear, but if I could grow a beard that thick I would.
More for fun than anything else – I think it’s the reason why guys are constantly mucking about with their genitals even in public. Because they can.”
–Chris Toy – Studs Up
1. Curiosity; 2. Idleness (even though it’s not much of a chore to shave, the lazy side often makes the decisions); 3. Delusion (a genuine belief that it’s an interesting development for the world looking in). Note: none of these motivations make it out of the shallow end of the pool.”
– Ed Needham – The Spoiler
“I think with all the summer signings at Real, he’s feeling kind of forgotten, so he needed to do something different in order to stand out. And since Cruz Beckham already bought the last spaceman outfit, Iker had to grow a hobo beard. The plus side: he can keep things in there like Doritos and gum!
–Brooks Peck - Dirty Tackle
Yeah, they weren’t helpful in the slightest, but never mind. Even if Iker does decide to store corn chips and mints in his facial hair, we will always love him. But perhaps from afar. With a hot towel and a can of Gillette shaving cream at the ready.
