It is a sight to see. A thing of legend. Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel and his well talked about beard held a press conference on Thursday and both addressed the media. Keisel was asked questions about his beard and noted the beard has it\’s own Facebook page and Twitter page and Keisel indeed confirmed that neither were run by him. Keisel said he has been growing the beard since training camp, because playoff beards are popular around Pittsburgh. When asked if there was a purpose for growing it, he said, “Yeah. To look like this.” See the picture of Keisel below at his presser and you can click the picture or here to see the full video of the press conference.
