SportsDash: Bobby Valentine can’t grow a Red Sox playoff beard

The Red Sox's tradition of growing beards for the duration of their playoff run has been widely publicized. The practice is being executed to perfection by Mike Napoli and Jonny Gomes, and many Boston fans have adopted the facial hair, be it through fake beards or authentic growth of their own. Whether this crop of playoff beards has any magic in it remains to be seen.

Former Red Sox Manager and current NBCSN baseball analyst Bobby Valentine joins SportsDash's Dave Briggs (@davebriggstv) to chat about the World Series matchup between St. Louis and Boston.  Baseball aside, the former skipper admits he couldn't grow a playoff beard if he wanted to.
