No-Shave November, an annual effort to raise awareness for cancer by asking men to put away the Gillette for 30 days, officially starts Sunday. Are you looking to get inspired for the no-shave nonsense to come? Consider these Chicagoans and their whiskers. Who do you think rocks the best beard?
The Cubs player gained a lot of fans during the recent post-season, but his pitching wasn't the only thing to garner attention. See this headline on mlb.com: "Is Jake Arrieta's beard the only thing better than his curveball?"

Okay, one more Blackhawks player. Because why not.
