I’ve recently started watching “The Rockford Files” on Netflix during my treadmill time. Love me some 1970s detective and cop drama. In the pilot, Jim shoots down an airplane with a small caliber pistol. High speed chases are clearly filmed with cars driving at 20 miles per hour and then speeding up the film. It’s a gas, man.
Anyway, in light of my love of that — and my love of knuckleballers — I think I’d be all over this latest show:
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.
Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.
Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
