We reached peak beard and peak sunshine this week, with the armies of hairy-faced men pouring forth onto the varioius cricket pitches, canals, and Grogans to suck up the fleeting rays, confirming that indeed, the summer is officially here and that yes, some men officially have to take a good hard look at themselves with trimmers in hand.
