    Emmett's beard is 34 years old (Thanks to the Vikings)!

    http://www.cannonfalls.com/main.asp?SectionID=1&SubSectionID=1&ArticleID=1501 9&TM=52518.46

    Emmett Pearson of Vasa watched the Super Bowl on Sunday but it wasn't much fun...the Minnesota Vikings weren't playing.

    Emmett is a diehard Viking fan and his beard is a testament to that. He's had it since 1974 when the Vikings lost the Super Bowl. "After they lost I told my boys I wasn't going to shave until the Vikings won because they had such a good team. But they came back the next year and lost again. I think they've had a chance to win it four times."

    Now, 34 years later, Emmett stated - "I'm still hoping, but they need some help!"

    It's either breathtaking dedication to the Vikes or idiocy, I can't decide which.

    Now I think that takes work and dedication. Hopefully he isn't full of lice or anything..

    This guy vowed never to shave his beard until the Browns won a Super Bowl...

    I think he should shave it.
    It may release a bad omen.
