    导出博客文章Movember is a movement that seeks to raise money and awareness about mens health
    issues, and provides a good excuse to throw your razors away. But if you have
    noticed, facial hair - from carefully cultivated stubble to thick, stylised
    beards - has been in fashion for at least five years now. Even cricketers have
    caught on. The Indian players are virtually indistinguishable from each other,
    Kane Williamson has the ability to grow a neck beard, and David Warner has a
    respectable looking tache, possibly to give him a more serious-minded look.Those
    are all good tries, but the 70s remain the sexiest decade for facial hair in
    cricket, ammirright? Granted, there are no beards in this photo of the
    Australian squad from 1975, but look at the droops and the burns.But before they
    preen too much, lets dial back a hundred years or so and admire the efforts of
    this set of Australian gents. Wonder if the artist took the liberty to add
    volume to some of those beards, though.Could any other mo hold a candle to
    former Australian batsman Syd Gregorys? Probably just as well, given the amount
    of wax that must have gone into getting it to hold that shape.You need to work
    harder, son.Merv Hughes gets all up in David Boons business. Whats the social
    protocol around touching another human beings hairy upper lip?Sometimes less is
    more, as Ajit Wadekar announces on arrival in England in 1971, when India went
    on to win their first series in the country.Former England wicketkeeper Godfrey
    Evans was the inspiration behind the Wolverine look.And Im just going to say
    what everyone else is thinking: Ricky Pontings early 1990s goatee was obviously
    the inspiration behind Kevin Richardsons Backstreet Boys look. Though 90s-era
    Ponting was more AJ than Kevin in vibe.Speaking of musicians, can someone tell
    Justin Timberlake that this is how you bring sexy back? I mean, Andy Roberts
    (left) isnt even trying and hes got you by your soul. And Viv, as if he needed
    any facial hair to accentuate that jawline.Recognise this fella? Usually the
    cummerbund is pressed into doing far more work. WG Grace with the beard, minus
    the belly.A beard nearly as famous as Graces is Hashim Amlas. And as you can
    see, with proper care, you can make it do your work for you.These Australians
    will go to any lengths with their mind games. Doug Bollinger tries imitating a
    scarecrow with fungal growth to get a wicket.A number of Pakistani players in
    recent years have sported luxuriant beards - Saeed Anwar, Saqlain Mushtaq,
    Mushtaq Ahmed and even Inzamam-ul-Haq. But Misbah-ul-Haqs is possibly the most
    stylish. Clean-shaven Misbah looks like a PTA dad. Bearded Misbah looks like a
    PTA dad who will sing a self-composed song at karaoke nights (about the pain of
    not quite getting to the fastest Test hundred record) and make you his special
    artisanal tea blend for when you need to calm down after a round of meetings
    with the PCB. Lets wrap it up by acknowledging the efforts of the young brigade.
    Australians Kane Richardson (left) and Andrew Tye prompt us to pose the eternal
    question: is your face half-full or half-empty of hair?

    . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys
    University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour. Stanley, a fourth-year
    business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0
    win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on
    Sunday. SAN FRANCISCO -- Johnny Cueto didnt see much significance in facing the
    New York Mets for the first time since Game 2 of last years World Series.Getting
    the struggling Giants back on track and into first place in the NL West was far
    more important to the All-Star pitcher.With San Franciscos suddenly rejuvenated
    offense providing plenty of help, Cueto accomplished both tasks.Cueto pitched
    seven effective innings and ended his six-start winless streak, and the Giants
    broke away late from the Mets 8-1 Friday night.This is where were going to see
    what kind of team we have, Cueto said through a translator after San Franciscos
    second straight win. This is when all the hitters and pitchers have to come
    together. We have to grind it out until the end.Cueto (14-3) allowed one run and
    eight hits, walking none and striking out two.The last time he saw the Mets was
    in October, when he beat them with a two-hitter while pitching for Kansas
    City.Denard Span had four hits and Conor Gillaspie homered as the Giants won
    their second straight over the Mets and moved back ahead of the Dodgers for the
    NL West lead. Pinch-hitter Ehire Adrianza singled to break a 1-all tie in the
    seventh.San Francisco has scored 18 runs with 32 hits in the last two days
    against the Mets.I know we went through a tough stretch but theyre good hitters,
    manager Bruce Bochy said. It gives you a margin of error, a little cushion. Its
    important when you can add on.Curtis Granderson homered and Jose Reyes added
    four hits for the Mets.Before the game, New York activated Yoenis Cespedes and
    Asdrubal Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list with the hopes they could provide
    a boost for the Mets slumping offense.They each went 1 for 4, and Cabreras
    throwing error from shortstop help the Giants score five times in the
    eighth.When you go through bad stretches it is everything, Mets manager Terry
    Collins said. You look at different things -- a couple of baserunning blunders,
    a ccouple of errors there, then all of a sudden the bullpen.dddddddddddd.The
    lack of hits offset a mostly strong outing from Seth Lugo (0-2) in his first
    major league start.Pressed into duty when Steven Matz was scratched late
    Thursday with a sore left shoulder, Lugo allowed three runs over 6 2/3 innings.
    He struck out two and walked one.The Giants chased Lugo with two runs in the
    seventh then put it away in the eighth.SPLASH DOWNGranderson homered into
    McCovey Cove with two outs in the second, his second home run in four games and
    20th this season. Its the second time Granderson has reached the waters at
    AT&T Park and it marked the 40th time an opposing player has done it,
    including the playoffs.PAGAN CONTINUES STREAKAngel Pagan singled in the sixth to
    extend his hitting streak to 17 games, the longest active mark in the majors.
    Its three games shy of his career high set in 2012.TRAINERS ROOMMets: Matz will
    fly back to New York on Sunday and will have his sore left shoulder examined on
    Monday. ... LHP Josh Smoker made his major league debut in the eighth inning
    after being called up from the minors earlier in the day. He gave up two hits
    and a run while getting one out. ... To make room for the three newcomers, the
    Mets optioned infielders T.J. Rivera, Ty Kelly and pitcher Josh Edgin to
    Triple-A Las Vegas. ... Second baseman Neil Walker (back) was held out for the
    fourth straight game.UP NEXTMets: Bartolo Colon (10-7) makes his first start
    against San Francisco since 2012 when he was pitching for Oakland. The
    right-hander is coming off a rough outing against Arizona when he lasted a
    season-low four innings.Giants: Left-hander Matt Moore (0-2) pitches the third
    game of the series seeking his first win since being traded from Tampa Bay. He
    has allowed nine runs over 18 innings with San Francisco. ' ' '
