Two years ago I found this random website on the internet and this picture in particular. I've wanted to pay tribute since it is the reason I was able to wait the ~730 days till Whiskerino 2007 (I had just missed the start of 2005).
This photo should look familiar to the beards that attended the Throwdown. Rather than focus on the end of 2007, I will focus on the beginning of the next Whiskerino. I will see all of yall in 2009 (if not before) and especially at the Throwdown in 2010 when I will make the trek to Nashville with the onslaught of Texan beards.
