Move over Movember, it’s time for DecemBEARD.
Redskins running back Roy Helu is spearheading an effort in the Redskins locker room, to sponsor facial air growth for the month of December. His beard may not measure up to Chris Neild proportions, but his cause is just.
“You grow your facial hair and you get people to sponsor you,” he explained. ”They give all the profits to DecemBEARD, who partners with an organization called ‘Tiny Hands.’ They go to India, and they build up posts where they check for sex trafficking.
“The more money that gets donated, the more posts that gets built, and the people that are doing the trafficking are getting caught, which is a good thing.”
I think that’s something that we can all agree on, and an epidemic in some countries that gets forgotten in the United States. Tiny Hands is Helu’s charity of choice, but it’s part of a larger network called “I’ve Got A Name,” the faith-based conglomerate that organizes DecemBEARD.

I was talking to D.C. Council Member Jack Evans about license plates last week, when the subject of the Redskins came up.
“One of my goals is to get every team with the name of ‘Washington’ back in the city,” Evans told me. “We’ve got the Wizards and the Caps and the Nationals, we’ve got the Mystics, we’ve got D.C. United. Now we’re working on the Redskins.”
Two of the Washington Redskins' top offensive players, tight end Fred Davis and offensive tackle Trent Williams, have been suspended four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, the NFL announced Tuesday.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The NFL has announced the four-game suspensions for Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis and left tackle Trent Williams for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Yeah, this season is only 75 percent completed, but the Peyton Manning stories keep rolling in.
Here’s another one, from Chris Mortensen’s appearance Thursday morning on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike. Mort began by arguing that the overwhelming likelihood is that Manning would be available as a free agent, and not via trade.
