JIMMY WALES FACES MONTY PANESAR FOR BEARD OF WINTER
The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that despite the winter weather the battle is hotting up for the coveted Beard of Winter Award
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales is battling England cricketer Monty Panesar for the title. Wales has a high profile thanks to his support for action on the US SOPA legislation while Panesar has attracted support from those lobbying for him to play in the England cricket team in Dubai
The Award is the first of four seasonal awards that go to make up the list for the Beard of the Year which will be announced in December 2012
Nominations for the Award came from BLF supporters and from members of the public via Twitter. The Winter list traditionally features bushy organic beards designed to cope with winter weather as well as those whose beard has been in the public eye over the festive season.
BLF Organiser Keith Flett said There are 10 days to go so Monty Panesar and Jimmy Wales have it all to do
