Don't be surprised if your next Domino's Pizza comes with a goatee -- on the delivery driver, that is. The Michigan-based pizza chain announced yesterday that it has dropped its long-standing ban on bearded employees, while settling a 12-year-old Maryland lawsuit that accused the company of discriminating against a Catonsville Sikh whose religion forbids shaving. Changing American fashions, not conscience, prompted the nation's No. 2 pizza chain to drop its no-beard policy effective yesterday, said Tim McIntyre, vice president for corporate relations.

Andrew Miller arrived in Baltimore Friday morning with a full beard. He had come from the Boston Red Sox, where the growth of facial hair is welcomed, and a few players in the Orioles clubhouse hoped he would remain untrimmed. But Miller, the Orioles' newly acquired left-handed reliever, caught word quickly that beards "were not expected here," he said. When he met with the media about three hours before Friday's first pitch he was, for the most part, clean-shaven. "I want to fit in," Miller said.

MAYBE WE should all be relieved that the biggest issue facing the Ravens as they prepare to open training camp is whether coach Brian Billick should shave off his new beard. I'm of the opinion that any NFL story that doesn't involve a federal prosecutor is probably a good one, but when I first saw a picture of Billick with his new facial hair, I had to wonder if he was going through one of those midlife crises that invariably end in a journey of self-discovery to the Himalayas. In fact, I have this picture in my head of Billick sitting on a small rattan loveseat with the Dalai Lama and the Lama asking him one of the questions of the ages: "Do you think Ray Lewis has lost a step?"

The first thing they do to new male students at the Naval Academy is shave their heads. So it is a bit of a shock to see the guys sporting ... mustaches. But the button-downed Brigade of Midshipmen has received permission from the top of the chain of command to grow whatever lip fuzz they can muster during November - which for the last decade has been known as "Movember," an effort to raise awareness and research funds for men's health. It is Midshipman Mustache Month at an institution that forbids facial hair on students, but for the first time in its history is allowing it because of the persistence of a Mid who spent months petitioning his superiors.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Orioles relief pitcher Gregg Olson would like to look more like the Mad Hungarian, but his new beard has not had the desired effect. At this point, he would be lucky to pass for a slightly perturbed Czech.Starter Mike Mussina had hoped that his new goatee would strike fear into the hearts of opposing hitters. Instead, his Leninesque growth has left him looking more like a member of the Socialist Workers Party than a baseball player.Outfielder Brady Anderson arrived at spring training with his sideburns reaching well below the ear. It had nothing to do with his on-field persona.

Facial hair is a catalyst to male metamorphosis. And the latest metamorphosis -- the goatee -- is a throwback to the 1950s, when beatniks, those artsy and devilish-looking cats were the intellectual rebels.Today the goatee is more a fashion statement than an act of rebellion, although a rebellion against shaving may be one motivator. The short, neat, mustache paired with a chin-only beard has been spotted on the likes of Bruce Willis, Adam Rich, Paul Reubens, Mickey Rourke, Rob Lowe and members of the bands the Smithereens and Los Lobos.

Standing outside in the cold this morning with tiny snow brush in my hand, I wished I didn't grow facial hair like a seventh-grader. My mind wandered to Luke Scott's big, bushy beard (recently shorn, unfortunately). And that somehow got me thinking about the best mustaches in Orioles history. Needless to say, it took me a while to dig out my car this morning. But digging out my car with the world's smallest snow brush also gave me fodder for today's question of the day (and a reason to look for old-school photos of Orioles legend Eddie Murray)

A former Baltimore police officer won a $60,000 settlement from the city on a claim that his civil rights were violated when he was handed a plastic Bic razor and forced to shave for a visit by then-President-elect Barack Obama. Anthony Brown, a former Warrant Apprehension Task Force member and 17-year veteran of the Police Department, and the city agreed to settle the $17 million lawsuit rather than go to jury trial, according to a memo presented Wednesday to the city's spending panel.

Two bar openings in two days. Must be early in the offseason. Couldn't let this one pass, though. Not with the World Series starting tonight. I know some of you are cringing when you hear “World Series,” lamenting about what might have been. Well, don't. The Orioles had a season that exceeded everyone's expectations. Be thankful that they went as far as they did. And don't let their early exit stop you from watching this October Classic. I know I'm biased, but the World Series will always be my favorite Reality TV Series.

Long, flowing dreadlocks have become a signature look for Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith in Baltimore. On Sunday afternoons, he has seen Ravens fans adorning dreadlocked wigs, the kind you would buy at one of those costume shops that pop up out of nowhere around Halloween. Others wear T-shirts that are replicas of his purple Ravens jersey, with black screen-printed dreadlocks covering up his surname above his number 82. “Around here, people are kind of obsessed,” the second-year wide receiver said Wednesday with a smile.

Sarah Bart is the first Goucher College student to participate in the "Jeopardy!" College Championship since it started in 1989. She's also just one of 15 contestants this year, pared down from about 12,000 wannabes. Clearly, Bart is awesome. But she is awesome enough to deal with our queries? Apparently so. We got in touch with the 22-year-old Philadelphia native before her episode airs at 7 p.m. Friday on WMAR/ABC (the tournament runs as 10 shows through Feb. 14), and though she can't reveal how well she did, we had other important matters on our mind.

It took two weeks -- and two Ravens victories -- but coach John Harbaugh has finally been peppered with a hard-hitting question about Joe Flacco's facial hair. Flacco and tight end Dennis Pitta first sported Fu Manchu mustaches during the win over the San Francisco 49ers and the Ravens are now 2-0 with them sporting the look. “I'm superstitious about not being superstitious,” Harbaugh said Monday at his weekly press conference, a day removed from Sunday's 24-10 win over the Cleveland Browns.
