And like that, it’s gone:

Two days after the Carolina Panthers lost Super Bowl 50 to the Denver Broncos, tight end Greg Olsen shaved off his beard, once again revealing his clean-shaven face to the world via a series of tweets.

His family, for one, probably is happy with the change (comments via Larry Brown Sports):

“My daughter’s not thrilled with it, she doesn’t love it. My boys, they don’t really care. My wife, she probably hates it,” Olsen said of his beard during Super Bowl media week.
Olsen, who is no stranger to wearing a “playoff beard,” explained how this one got started. He also says he is ready to finally get rid of it.
“I’m ready for this beard to go. … I’m counting the days. I’m not usually a beard guy. For anyone who knows me, I’m usually relatively cleanshaven most times. But what happened was, all of a sudden, you start the season clean-shaved and next thing you know, as long as we’re winning, you can’t get a haircut and you can’t shave.
“Everyone knows the drill, and next thing you know, you’re 4-0, you’re 6-0, 8-0 … it’s Christmas, we haven’t lost a game yet. And at that point we’ve got a special year going, so you just roll with it.”

The Panthers’ fans, however, couldn’t get enough, starting a Facebook page called “Greg Olsen’s Beard Fan Club.”
