Milwaukee Brewers pitcher John Axford sent out a harrowing, succinct message on Twitter Wednesday night that simply read “#RIP” followed by an unsettling link to a photo of his deceased facial hair trimmings. The thoughtful, inventive fellow was kind of enough to arrange his follicle friends in a properly united manner — almost as if they never left his face — but ultimately without a true home. If the work of art at right isn’t hanging at the MoMA by next week, I’ll be colossally disappointed.
Axford was also kind enough to provide a humorously expressive four-step sequence of the removal process.
Between this “event” along with the note he left reporters after bolting the clubhouse to be with his wife, who was going into labor, he might just be the most entertaining MLB follow on Twitter.
