Not sure what it says about me — and I’m not so sure I want to know — but I have watched this video of Jonny Gomes taming his trademark dirt beard about 500 times in the last hour.
There really isn’t a lot to it; the guy cleans up his facial hair, eliminates the pesky mustache portion, and drops a few Gomes-isms. But it holds me enraptured. And I don’t know why.
Maybe it’s the fact that his razor seems to have some kind of laser guiding system. Or the fact that I’ve been watching my 2013 World Series DVDs non-stop since December 1 and his heroics are still fresh in my mind. Or perhaps it’s the hypnotic allure of what I’m guessing are his digs in the background. (Speaking of which, just what is that thing in the back left corner? An indoor fire pit? A jacuzzi with attached fireplace?)
See if you don’t feel the same way.
Between this vid, spring training updates at NESN.com and SportsBettingInfo.com, my time before first pitch of the 2014 season just got all kinds of booked.
