“Goatee Gamble”: Calls to Shave

Now that “Goatee Gamble” is officially over, the pressure’s on for NBC’s Chuck Todd to shave his signature look… and friends and colleagues are upping the ante.

NBC cameraman Jim Long tweets:

@newmediajim: @jaketapper charity option???? that’s weak. if i donate the $1K can we make him shave? :) #goateegamble

And even “Today Show” anchor Matt Lauer‘s calling for a shave. From this morning’s show (video via Politico):

“So apparently Chuck’s going to have to shave live on TV, we’re going to have to do that… he’s going to look like a 17-year-old,” Lauer said.
