Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel is now a cleanly shaven man.
Known for his Grizzly Adams-style facial hair, Keisel parted ways with his trademark mustache and beard for charity.
During the "Shear The Beard" fundraiser, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin and teammates James Harrison and Aaron Smith took turns clipping away at Keisel's pronounced facial hair.
Hundreds watched the event - with the money going to benefit cancer programs at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh at UPMC.
"Even now, looking in the mirror, it’s strange because I’ve had the beard for so long, but it was a great night down here," Keisel told KDKA.
"Pittsburgh, of course, showed up. That’s what makes Pittsburgh special, though, is they have grasped onto this idea and really made it what it is today. If the fans didn’t respond the way they did to it, I wouldn’t do it."
One would think the decision made his wife, Sarah, the happiest of all.
