New England Revolution's Andrew Farrell welches on beard bet — or does he? | SIDELINE

Andrew Farrell thinks he's pretty funny.

The second-year New England Revolution defender vowed at the start of the 2014 season that he wouldn't shave his beard until he scored his first professional goal

Fast forward nearly eight months and Farrell's still sporting that same beard, only it's taking significantly more space on his face.

On Thursday, he gave Revolution fans — and fans of beards in general — a big scare.

Fans predictably freaked out and responded, "But you haven't scored. Why have you forsaken us?" But don't worry, folks, it was just banter.

We like you plenty and want you to score many goals in your career, Andrew, but we kind of enjoy making this comparison as well.
