In honor of the rather fantastic beard fad hitting professional sports right now, the Memphis Grizzlies are giving away a free ticket to fans who sport a beard โ€” real or fake โ€” during Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Helpfully, the Grizzlies brass has put together a PDF file to help fans make their own beards, which awfully nice (it even comes with instructions). It's such a convincing model, in fact, that we're fairly certain now that Jake Plummer's is fake. Not Kyle Orton's, though; that guy's will live for decades.

Wear a Beard, Score a Ticket []
