It's official...Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick has lost the "beard off" between himself and WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan. You remember this story, right? Back in Spring Training, Reddick was challenged by the "American Dragon" to see who could grow the best chin curtain. And, even though there was, seemingly, a minor setback back in April...seven months went by without nary a mention of the hairy contest. That was, of course, until the pair went beard to beard Monday in Nashville during a taping of WWE's "Monday Night Raw".
