Celebrity Facial Hair Friday - Soccer Style
With the World Cup finals this Sunday I thought it would be appropriate to find a footballer (as they say in England) with funky facial hair and feature him today. While there may be a few players who are into facial sculpting, the only player on France or Italy's team who seemed to sport anything meaningful was Gennaro Gattuso of Italy (who looks suprisingly like my step-brother Nick). Most players are clean-shaven, and a lot shave their head, probably because they sweat so much during a match.
Instead I invite you to check out Gillette's Yound Player Award, where you can vote for your favorite under 21 year old rising star. The current leader is Luis Valencia of Ecuador, followed by the always exciting Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal.
So what do they win? Well, as far as I can tell, they win the trophey pictured on the right.
The trophy which stands at 300mm high and weighs 4.2 kilograms is made from a copper alloy with zinc (90%-10%) and is plated with nickel, rhodium and oxidized sterling silver. The integral design came to life using a number of state-of-the-art techniques and weighs just over four kilograms.
Huh. That's it? No money? No lifetime supply of Gillette Fusion razors? Well, maybe they can win something on Gillette's FIFA World Cup contest website. Everytime it asks me which continent I'm on I deadend at the two unclickable North American choices. Looks like you'll have better luck if you're from Europe.
