Wizards road woes are growing Mike Wise's beard
It's now been more than a month since Chick Hernandez made his ill-fated promise to stop cutting his hair until the Wizards won on the road. And while his Chia Chick look continues to drive ratings at Comcast SportsNet, he isn't alone in hatching a follicle-related Wizards proposition.
Turns out that Mike Wise, his co-host Holden Kushner, and their producer Chris Johnson have all agreed to keep growing their facial hair until the Wizards finally win on the road. I think I might have promised to join them, for everyone who's interested in my own facial hair. And there are potential prizes! Via WJFK:

Wise just walked by me in the office, so I asked him what he thinks.
"A lot of people are looking at this as a negative promotion for the Wizards," he told me. "On the contrary. They hold our happiness. If they can win on the road, just once, soon, please God soon, we will be able to look like civilized human beings again."
Tuesday night the Wizards are in New Orleans, which is 19-5 at home. If that's a loss, they don't get another shot until Feb. 13 at Cleveland, which has the worst home record in the NBA. After that, the Wizards don't face a team with a losing record at home until March 18, when they travel to Toronto.
