Epic night for an epic beard

For a fifth straight year, we said good-bye to Da Beard and hello to Brett. It was an epic night for an epic beard last night at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille.

Feels good to be cleaned up. I think I owe, at least my sweet, loving wonderful wife, to keep it down a little bit for a litle while. I’ll be shocked lookin’ at the guy in the mirror for a little while. — Brett


Steeler and Da Beard Nation turned out in full force to witness Brett’s transformation from Mountain Man to Sharp Dressed Man.

Watch video of the transformation and of Brett’s surprise at seeing his former teammates, James Farrior and Casey Hampton take the stage.

Brett’s family, friends, teammates and coaches also showed up to support him.
