Goalkeepers named Matt and beards. What's up with that?
Once again, the USL Championship season has given us the gift of some of the best sporting beards in North America, forcing some difficult decisions as we cut down the field of contenders for the league’s annual #FearTheBeard poll.
Back to defend his title for a third consecutive year is San Antonio FC’s Matt Cardone, but he figures to get a strong challenge this year from Nashville SC’s Matt Pickens and Birmingham Legion FC’s Matt Van Oekel – what is it with goalkeepers named Matt and beards, by the way?
Make your voice heard over the next week, poll closes next Friday, Oct. 4 at 12 p.m. ET, and we’ll reveal the champion.
