Three years ago
we documented the hairy evolution of Brent Burns, from his clean-shaven baby face in 2005 to his current state as the NHL’s head wookie.
So it’s about time that the
San Jose Sharks took advantage of Burns’ unique look and used it as part of a ticket promotion.
If you’re lucky enough to buy one of these packages for their March 28 game against the
Los Angeles Kings, the Sharks will give you a Chia Burns, which will allow you to grow out the hair and beard to your liking. San Jose Sharks
Brilliant idea. We haven’t seen a giveaway idea this great since minor league teams created bobblefist dolls for
the likes of Joel Rechlicz and Dennis Bonvie.
If this promotion goes over as well as we think it will, the obvious next move is a
Joe Thornton bobblebeard. - - - - - - - is the associate editor for Sean Leahy on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip? Email him at Puck Daddy email@example.com or follow him on Twitter! MORE FROM YAHOO HOCKEY:
