- Baker Mayfield finally addressed “Mustache-Gate.”
- The Cleveland Browns QB had an… unexpected explanation for his constantly-evolving facial landscape.
- At least one sportsbook is now taking bets on Mayfield’s facial hair.
Baker Mayfield is many things. So many, in fact, that it’s sometimes easy to get that he’s also—well, a quarterback in the NFL. He is an interesting personality, confident bordering on cocky but often seen as arrogant. He speaks his mind and doesn’t hold back even when he should. While he has been struggling this season, he still has the support of many fans.
But with his latest comment—he is making it hard to have his back.
Baker Mayfield Reveals the Truth Behind Mustache-Gate
Of all the things to talk about, the most interesting thing he had to say during Wednesday’s media availability was about his facial hair.
For those that are unaware, when he arrived at the stadium in Denver on Sunday, he was sporting a full face of hair—beard and mustache.
During the game, he just had a handlebar mustache.
But when he walked to the podium after the game, he was sporting a simple, basic mustache look.
As could be expected, Twitter ripped him to shreds for the final look – and shaving twice in a matter of hours. However, little did the Twitter comedians know, but it was going to get even better. During his press availability on Wednesday, he explained his thought process—and his logic was awesome!
A Little History on The Handlebar Mustache
Who knew that the handlebar mustache was something that a person needed to deserve? The bearded look (kept and unkept) seems to be more of a thing these days.
